Is that 1 residence or subdivided into many units though? Many such rowhouses in London used to be 1 residence but now landlords have converted them and rent them out by the room.

I thought that myself but It actually looks like it could still be a single family home

Here's another one from NY:



At one time it was listed for $75 million but the price has been significantly cut to under $60 million. Its 21,000 square feet of living space.


Also, here is Madonna's rowhouse in Manhattan. Technically, it may not fit with this thread, because it appears to be a combination of 3 older homes into one mega-mansion


I think she paid ~$35 million for it.

Madonna's London home, (the one on the left). She also brought the house next door (the one with the bay windows) which she uses as a gym, as well as the properties that back onto it as well. They don't look particularly special but they are massive.

Believe it or not these are rowhomes, London's Cumberland Terrace - a 1 bed apartment would set you back $3.1 million, a 7 bed house $78 million. A house under the central portico has never come under sale recently.







In the same vein, Carlton Terrace





and this is now the London Business School








50,000 sq. ft rowhome in Regents Park worth $155 million. Another property on the same row was put on offer for $186 million, but refused, despite that it wouldve made it the most expensive property in the world.

Other rowhomes: Kensington, Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Holland Park, St James's and Chelsea are lined with streetwalls of these old houses, most have been converted into apartment blocks, offices and hotels. Bear in mind almost all of them traditionally have a floor (with windows) below street level - you'll notice them below the front entrance, behind the black rails, where steps will take you down:

A high percentage of these types of buildings have been carved up into apartments which still go for over £1,000,000.
