Palace in the Park could be yours for £40m


A swish palace overlooking Regents Park in London is thought to be one of the most expensive new terrace houses in Britain.

Lethbridge House in Cornwall Terrace has a carriage driveway, swimming room and spa, and could be yours for a cool £40 million.

Dubbed the Palace in the Park, Lethbridge House is the last property to go on the market from the terrace, which is made up of eight Grade I listed homes originally built in 1811.

The building was commissioned by the Prince Regent – later King George IV - and designed by John Nash, the renowned architect responsible for Buckingham Palace.

The mansion spans 11,797 sq ft and features six bedrooms (including a master bedroom floor), six reception rooms, seven bathrooms, a balcony, a swimming pool, wine cellar and media room, plus expansive views across the park.

There are also two separate mews houses at the rear of the property for guests.

New development
The double-fronted mansions overlook the Regent Park's rowing lake, and belonged to the British nobility for 150 years.

According to the Daily Mail, developers Oakmayne purchased the terrace around five years ago and employed a group of interior designers, supervised by English Heritage and The Crown Estate, to makeover the properties.

Due to the huge amount of work involved, the terrace homes are now classified as new homes and have commanded some of the highest prices for refurbished properties.
