It is thought to have been one of the inspirations for the 1838 novel Oliver Twist, with the building demolished in 1849.

The workhouse made way for a number of grand mansions and a garden square known as Kensington Gate.

But while the location's past is associated with extreme poverty, you'll need to 'pick a pocket or two' of the super-rich to afford this home.

Recently renovated, the stunning Grade II listed townhouse was put on the market for £13.5 million. This is around 80 times the average price of a home sold in England and Wales last month.

And as the property counts as two, any buyer will be eligible for four parking permits - something super-desirable in London.

Shirley Humphrey, director at Harrods Estates which is selling the property, said: "This house provides the rare opportunity to purchase a large London family house and mews that can be arranged to provide up to nine bedrooms."

She added: "Close to Hyde Park and Kensington High Street, the house overlooks a lovely private garden square and is ideal for families wanting extra space in a prime central London location."
