With Primrose Hill and Regents Park on your doorstep you’d be forgiven for not bothering with your garden at all. Unless, that is, it came with two special plant rooms, a sauna, steam room, swimming pool and shower.
Yep, this refurbished period property on the edge of St John’s Wood, and around the corner from Ms Sadie Frost and the like, is a snip at just under £40m.
With that price tag comes the ubiquitous reception hall, kitchen/breakfast room, drawing room, dining room, lounge and master bedroom suite with his and hers dressing rooms (of course) and en suite bathroom. The other four bedrooms and further three bathrooms ensure there’s plenty of space for guests, while the games room and its bar, the cinema room and gymnasium mean you can happily stay in and forget about Regents Park and the Primrose Hill set altogether.

Getting your nameplate outside this house would mean having the luxury to sleep in a bedroom that has a Buckingham Palace-like balcony. Gated on Avenue Road in St. John’s Wood, this dream property has a further five bedrooms which look out to a sprawling west-facing garden and an outdoor swimming pool. If that’s not enough reason to buy this house, a cinema room with a bar and a spa infused with Swarovski crystals will definitely get you thinking.

Except it’s not, its £32m in fact, we assume whomever buys this property can afford triple glazing or decent ear plugs to drown out the 9am gongs.
