Capital gains: The London properties to invest in now

2 of 7 2/7

Mansion House, Westminster

Sitting right in the heart of the Establishment, just a stone’s throw from the River Thames, the resplendent Mansion House has a rich political history. The property, which was designed by architect Horace Field, was built in 1905 and initially served as the London office of the North Eastern Railway Company. In 1982 the Liberal Democrats (then known as the Social Democratic Party) moved in – and they didn’t pack up their filing cabinets until 2011. It was at this stage that London-based luxury developer Saigol DDC stepped in to transform the building into a seven-bedroom family home, while maintaining its historical charm.

The renovation, aided by craftsmen who had previously worked on Windsor Castle and the Palace of Westminster, incorporates a host of striking period features, such as a sweeping central staircase and ornate gilt cupola. Despite being Grade II listed, it is packed with modern amenities including an eight-person lift and a wellness area complete with a 10 metre swimming pool. As well as its dramatic interiors, Mansion House, which is 15 metres wide, has an Italian garden and roof terrace, which offers views of Big Ben, the House of Lords and Westminster Abbey.

Mansion House is listed for sale for £36 million with Knight Frank.
