London, Nov 27 (ANI): The world's most expensive row of terraced houses in Britain has gone on sale for a staggering 400 million pounds.

The Cornwall Terrace, in London's Regent's Park, consists of eight double-fronted mansions, each with a value of between 29 and 60 million pounds.

Architect Sir John Nash designed the row of properties as part of the Prince Regent's plans for the 19th century masterpiece Regent's Park.

Overlooking the park's rowing lake, the mansions belonged to the British nobility for 150 years before becoming the headquarters for British Land.

The whole terrace was then purchased by developers Oakmayne two-and-a-half years ago.

The company employed a group of renowned interior designers, supervised by English Heritage and The Crown Estate, to give the properties a tasteful makeover.

"A rare convergence of provenance, history and grandeur," the Daily Mail quoted estate agents as describing the street.

Each Grade 1-listed mansion took 83,000 man-hours to renovate, with a whole year spent digging beneath the original basement to create two extra floors.

The properties have 8,000 to 14,000 square feet each, and five to seven bedrooms, and the interiors make the most of the buildings' rich architectural heritage, while boasting state-of-the-art technology.

Each master bedroom alone is the size of the average London apartment, with the entrance halls being of "embassy proportions".

All properties boast a silent hydraulic elevator and multi-room iPad-controllable audiovisual and lighting systems, and each even comes with an accompanying two-bedroom mews house for staff, and a "Bentley-sized garage", as well as a spa and gym.

The largest property, to be sold next year, also has its own ballroom and swimming pool complex. (ANI)
