What does £1,000,000 buy in London?

Being a millionaire, and owning a property with 7 digits in the price tag is the dream of many and the reality for a few of us. 

When the luxury benchmark of 1 million pounds is finally reached, and the excitement of buying  a 1 million pound property is rising, let’s see what the real estate market can offer within this budget. 

From grand family homes in the countryside to relatively small apartments in Chelsea, the selection is wide, and depending on the area of the country (among other criteria), the type of properties available within this budget varies dramatically. 

Real estate outside London is usually priced lower than similar properties in the capital, so we concentrate our interest in London as the most desirable area.

Unfortunately, even 1 million pounds in the capital will not get you a luxury penthouse (spread over the top floor and with a separate entrance) next to Harrods. However, a 1 bedroom luxury apartment in Knightsbridge is still possible to find. Alternatively, for the same money you can opt in for a much larger modern 2-bedroom flat, with magnificent views on the river near the City, or become a proud owner of a cosy and spacious family house, with a garden and roof terrace, in desirable postcode of Zone 3. 

Whether you decide to choose a spacious family house in Zone 3 or beyond, or a one bedroom luxury flat in Mayfair, with correctly selected properties in London your 1 million pounds will be very well-invested.

Here we have sourced some examples of what £1,000,000 can purchase you in London.
