A mansion in North London is currently for sale for a huge £185million.

The building was originally built in 1826 under the designs on architect John Nash, who also worked on Buckingham Palace.

Now, it's up for sale from current owners Zenprop.

Zenprop purchased the building in 2016, and has recently put the mansion on the market for £185million.

However – even if you did have that kind of money spare – they have warned you would need even more to refurbish it.

Chief executive of Zenprop, Derrick Beare, said that whoever buys the property would be looking at spending a further £80-£90million to refurbish 90 per cent of the interior.

The mansion is located at 1-18 York Terrace East in North London, and currently has planning permission for 26 flats and two houses.

Depending on who bought it, they could renovate the space into apartments, or keep the grand 117,000 square feet of floorspace to themselves.
