Inside the lavish £3.9m apartments at Regent's Park's refurbished Park Crescent

It's not often you get a chance to own a slice of London's architectural history. But with refurbishment on one of the capital's most iconic addresses complete, apartments have gone on sale – and you can buy one, for a cool £3.9m.

Park Crescent, overlooking Regent's Park, was designed by architect John Nash (of Buckingham Palace and Regent Street fame) in the early part of the 1800s.

The crescent was home to Charles Francis Adams, US ambassador to the UK during Abraham Lincoln's presidency, between 1878 and 1908. And although it was partially destroyed during the Blitz, it was restored in the 1960s – but many of the properties became offices in the late 20th century.
