6 of the Best...London mansion flats

The distinctive mansion block façade can be identified by its lateral shape and red or yellow brickwork. Initially appearing in London's smart residential areas in the late 1800s, mansion flats were the first purpose-built apartments in the city, providing homes for the earliest commuters. Now they serve as a reminder of the Victorian and Edwardian periods and are still highly desirable.

At a time when space is key, the lateral layout of the mansion flat holds real appeal for buyers. Each block comes with a portered lobby, offering residents a combination of a lock up and leave property and a comfortable home in a building full of character.

Here is a selection of the best examples currently on the market.
