FROM ITS Gothic arched front door to its leaded-light windows, Keble House in south-west London tries to be an imposing country mansion. The development of flats however, stands in well-groomed grounds on suburban Putney Hill. The top-floor flat currently for sale has four bedrooms (one overlooks the tennis courts, though the fourth is more suited in size to a study), and is being sold with a share of the freehold and a garage. There's a lift to the top floor. The price has been reduced by pounds 30,000 to pounds 375,000; details from Gascoigne-Pees (0181-788 7884).

STRICTLY SPEAKING, Parade View Mansions in Marine Gate, Portsmouth, isn't a mansion block, it's a restored redbrick barracks with rows of chimney stacks and polished windows. "Mansions" does have grander connotations - so the developer Redrow Homes hopes. All but one of the 20 two-bedroom flats have been sold, reflecting the waterside location. All flats are equipped with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer-drier and oven, and white bathroom fittings. The price is pounds 151,950; details from the sales office on 01705 818838.

The 14ft reception room is decorated in fashionable terracotta and cream, with a French door leading onto a balcony. For sale at pounds 275,000 - details from John D Wood (0171-228 0174).
