Listing of the Day

Location: London

Price: £6 million (US$7.9 million)

For prospective buyers looking to kick up their heels in London, this three-bedroom duplex apartment on Onslow Square comes complete with a private ballroom.

The ballroom was originally open to the residents of Onslow Square, which was completed in 1865, according to the listing.

But the building that housed the ballroom (which was likely completed in the late 19th-century) was damaged beyond repair by a bomb during World War II. During the rebuilding process, the ballroom (which survived intact) was absorbed by a new development of apartments and retained within this one.

Now used as a drawing room, the ballroom can be cleared of furniture and used as a unique entertaining space.
