England’s Most Luxurious Property Hotspots
August 19, 2016
Despite the recent Brexit result, the UK’s luxury property market is thriving, with investors from overseas snapping up luxurious properties in major cities and sprawling country estates. Some of the most luxurious houses in England boast their own swimming pools, tennis courts and even croquet lawns.
But what are the most luxurious property hotspots for you to consider moving to? We cover the top 5.
Full of Georgian townhouses, ultra-chic Knightsbridge is just a stone’s throw from the world famous Harrods department store and Hyde Park.
With house prices going from anywhere between £2 million to a staggering £17.5, you will need a hefty bank balance to live in this exclusive area of London. You do, however, get to call Kylie Minogue and Vladimir Kim your neighbours though.
Known more recently as the London commuter belt, Surrey has become a very popular destination for stressed city workers to escape to and it’s not hard to see why.
With beautiful rolling hills and acres of countryside it is the perfect luxury hotspot to unwind and relax. The three villages of Farnham, Haslemere and Godalming are said to be the most desirable, with the latter home to the Barnfield Estate that recently sold for a cool £6 million (above image).
With house prices in these regions going for a minimum of £300,000, you get far more value for money than in the boroughs of London. There is the annoying hour long commute though.
Perfect for the recently retired or those looking for a second home, Devon is a beautiful seaside location with plenty of stunning properties for sale. With average summer temperatures of 22 degrees Celsius, it is only 2 degrees colder than the exclusive Monaco and a lot cheaper too. House prices in the region go for an average of £190,000 to £300,000 according to property buyers the Open Property Group.
With a relatively small population in comparison to the rest of England and a rich, medieval history, it is definitely an exclusive luxury hotspot. The most sought after locations are in Bayards cove, Salcombe and Kingswear.
Notting Hill, London
Home to the classic film of the same name and the world famous annual carnival, Notting Hill is another exclusive area in London for those with money to look out for.
With world famous Michelin starred restaurants, designer clothing stores and the Portobello Market, this formerly run down area of London has become a true luxury hotspot.
Prices in the area range from just under £1 million for flats to over £10 million for semi-detached properties.
Henley on Thames, Bucks
Set in the historic county of Oxfordshire, Henley on Thames is the perfect luxury hotspot for those who love the water.
Boat lovers in particular will fall in love the above river front property in Buckinghamshire, with its own private mooring and river views. There’s plenty of space – 4,000 square feet, to be precise, with 5 bedrooms and planning permission to extend the property. There’s even a self-contained annexe, great for guests or staff. This property is on the market for £3.6 million.
