Searching for a home with some history? Look no further...

What do you get when you mix luxury with literature? Charles Dickens’ Regents’ Park townhouse, of course – and it’s now up for sale.

Room with high ceilings, dark wooden floorboards, cream sofas and a chandelier

If you’re committed to owning a piece of the past, this astonishing home boasts a Grade I status (awarded to only 2.5 percent of UK listed buildings), meaning it has been deemed a place of particular historical significance. It dates back to the early 19th century and served as Dickens’ summer home. Though it may sound rather ravishing, it comes with a price: a hefty £22.5 million.

White marble bathroom with large bath

The townhouse was designed by John Nash, the architect who can be credited for working on none other than Buckingham Palace, and it is certainly a property of palatial proportions. It boasts over 6000 square feet of space across five floors, with highlights including seven vast bedrooms, a sauna and a gym. There’s a separate self-contained mews house, too, with a garage and two bedrooms.

Dining room with grey chairs and blue artwork

A far cry from the grey-hued London of Oliver Twist, this really is the height of grandeur. If you’ve been waiting for something unique to come along – and you’ve got a lot of cash to spare – it just might be the house for you.
