They tell you that money can’t buy happiness. But it can buy you a classy 18th century Georgian townhouse in London with a swimming pool in its basement.

For instance, the screening room has the sleek modernity of wood walls with the mellow softness of Moroccan pillows and cushions. The basement pool is housed in blue glass, with a stone step-up, and a wooden hammock that feels Scandinavian. The kitchen has a gleaming white galley bar and a big island.

Now, tell me owning this wouldn’t make you happy.
