A huge mansion with breathtaking views of Regent's Park has gone on the market for a whopping £185 million.

If sold for its eye-wateringly high price this plush London pad would become Britain's second most expensive home.

According to estate agent Savills, 1-18 York Terrace East comes with 117,000 sq ft and planning permission for two houses and 26 apartments with 42 underground parking spaces.

It was originally built in the 1820s and consisted of 18 single family houses. During the Second World War the building was badly damaged and nearly demolished.
