Give us ceiling roses, corbels, and cornicing galore. More fireplaces than you can count? Yes please. If you too are a lover of all things ornate, then you’re in the right place: this is our edit of the latest, and most sumptuous, period properties for sale in London right now.
Regent’s Crescent, W1B
Regent’s Crescent is a slice of London history, forming part of architect John Nash’s grand vision of a Roman-inspired West End approach to Regent’s Park. After a five-year renovation, Regent’s Crescent has emerged as a 120-metre curve of glorious stucco with all the classical beauty of Nash’s design. This is an rare opportunity for buyers to acquire a lateral apartment within this landmark Grade I-listed development – the property features a 75sqm private terrace which runs the entire width of the apartment, as well as a double-height entrance lobby, 24/7 concierge, meeting rooms, a 20m swimming pool, gymnasium, treatment rooms and a private cinema.
Springfield Road, NW8
This Georgian-style house is located in the up-and-coming St John’s Wood.

The property comprises a principal bedroom with an ensuite dressing room, bathroom and shower room, plus five further bedrooms, reception and living areas, a kitchen/breakfast/dining room and a study.
