This penthouse apartment that will set you back some. Situated in the leafy Hyde Park area this apartment boasts great views, 9,000 square feet, its own concierge service provided by the Mandarin Oriental hotel, swimming pool and spa. It seems to have an interesting history of appearing on the property market on several occasions and then being removed before reappearing again.

This grade II listed national historical mansion and estate might be a little higher in the listing but the £65 million asking price is as yet unconfirmed. With 260 acres, 24 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms it really is a real country mansion in line with scenes from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. With mountains of history to its name the property includes 4 cottages, a coach house, stables and deer park. Not forgetting its own botanical garden and historical woodlands.
