What would you do with a million pounds? For most of us, it’s only a pipe-dream — but it’s still fun to browse and wonder, “What if?” Well, this is exactly that "what if". We found some of our favourite properties around the UK that come in at right around the million-pound mark. Are you ready to start daydreaming yet?
From central London townhouses to converted farmhouses that sprawl for acres, a million pounds looks very different depending on where you are in the UK — but there’s definitely something for everyone. So if you want to take a look at what’s on offer, here are our seven favourite million-pound properties.
A Stunning Four-Bedroom Detached House With Views That Kill
This remarkable four bedroom home in Monmouthshire has great links to both Cardiff and Bristol — but honestly, you’ll probably never want to leave. Not just because of the vast amount of space or the actual tennis court on the grounds, but simply because of the view. The doors swing open to a patio with views that are completely unmatched. It really is your own little paradise.
A Three-Bedroom Home In The Heart Of London
High ceilings, plenty of light — it’s what many overcrowded Londoners lust after. This three-bedroom home is close to the trendy Upper Street in Angel but has great links into the City. And at five grand under a million, you can use the extra cash to deck it out with — well, five grand might only buy you a bed at London prices, but what else do you need?
Four Bedroom Semi-Detached In Surrey With Double The Garden Space
Snugly located in the village of Oxshott in Surrey, this house boasts a 100 foot garden in the back and a 40 foot garden in the front — you know, just in case you need a spare. The station gets you to Waterloo in 35 minutes, but with ample living space and a walk-in wardrobe, you might not want to leave. Seriously, no judgment if you choose to go full-Carrie Bradshaw and just live in that wardrobe.
A Grade II Listed Building That Comes In At Under A Million
You know when the listing mentions “Outbuildings For Agricultural And Equestrian Purposes” that you’re talking about a serious property. But for well under a million pounds, you can have this five bedroom farmhouse with 12 acres of pasture in Northwich. Your imaginary horses and sheep are excited already.
An Actual Detached House... In London
A detached house in London is a pretty amazing find — and Wembley may be on the outskirts, but it’s still very much part of the capital. A corner plot with tons of development opportunity, you’ll feel like you’re in your own little oasis — even though you're a quick walk from the Metropolitan and Jubilee lines.
A 7/8 Bedroom House In Need Of A Little Love
Sure, it could use an update — but talk about bang for your buck. This Grade II listed property with seven or eight bedrooms in Taunton comes in at over 5,000 square feet. A stunning building with a real wow factor, it’s only steps from the centre of town.
OK, so maybe a million pound property isn’t on your to-do list — or maybe it is. Either way, having a nose around what’s available is how many of us love to while away some time on the internet. Let the imaginary remodelling begin.
