Got a spare £3 million kicking around? Today's your lucky day. A Georgian mansion in Stepney Green has gone on sale for a cool £2,950,000. And it's not just any old mansion - it dates back to 1741 and was previously empty for 126 years. Oh, and it comes with a ridiculously grand-sounding name, too. Malplaquet House is described in the advert on Rightmove as one of 'London's forgotten mansions', as it was unoccupied for years until it was saved by the Spitalfields Trust and repaired by the present owners over a five-year period.

But now it's been spruced up and restored to its former glory, and, if you've got the cash, it could be your new home. But what will your £3 million get you? Well, nearly 4,500 square feet of floor space, for a start. And that includes five bedrooms and seven reception rooms - which doesn't seem excessive at all. There's also a front and back garden, and, most importantly, a wine cellar.
