What would £7 million get you where you live?

I know it's been done before but I am stunned by how little you get in London for the money when buying houses. Saw this castle for sale near me for offers over £7,000,000. It's stunning and you get land, houses etc. I was curious as to what I could get for my (fantasy) £7 mil in London, and there's a 2 bed flat for a similar price. 2 beds?! Crazy. You wouldn't need the gated road if you had your own peninsula!

Which would you buy? What can you get in your area for a similar price?

6mlllion is the most expensive around here but it does get you a country estate.

The entire village

Around £1.5 million here, maybe a farm with lots of land would be a bit more but not many properties at that price. £7 million would probably buy a few streets or a small village.

Couldn't get close to 7mil. This was the most expensive after the one acorn linked to. Don't actually like it much though!

acorns that's more like It! Nice and I'd get change for my £7 mil!

a mansion with many acres if such a thing existed. even then there would be plenty of change tbh.

The most expensive thing listed for Suffolk on Rightmove is 591 acres of farmland at 5 million. There's no house there, just the land.

The most expensive house rather than farm is this one near the sea:

A nice 5 bed house.

ProseccoPoppy Sat 21-Apr-18 08:20:52

This - which is gorgeous and v close to Bath.

PussCatTheGoldfish Sat 21-Apr-18 08:21:03

I love the castle OP!

uggmum Sat 21-Apr-18 08:22:51

I could probably buy the whole town where I live 😂

Cornishclio Sat 21-Apr-18 08:22:53

Ince Castle is near me too so 7 million would buy that

OdileDeCaray Sat 21-Apr-18 08:22:56

Nothing for 7 million. This is the highest at £2,650,00.00

JustAnotherNameChangeObviously Sat 21-Apr-18 08:23:57

Probably the entire county.

BumpowderSneezeonAndSnot Sat 21-Apr-18 08:24:52

Nothing above 1.2million here and they're all beautiful 6 bedroom detatched farmhouses in rolling countryside

Slartybartfast Sat 21-Apr-18 08:25:02

this is 5 bedrooms shock

not sure i even know how to write 7 million

Northumberlandlass Sat 21-Apr-18 08:25:22

Near Hexham....just over £3 million

That’s the most expensive... haven’t looked at farms/ land though!

Slartybartfast Sat 21-Apr-18 08:27:07

or this 3 bedroom flat

FaithEverPresent Sat 21-Apr-18 08:28:11

I’d get several nice places instead of one massive place. I’d stay where I am but have a bigger house (nice village location) as I have family nearby but I’d buy elsewhere too. I’d love a place in the Lakes. This Place is rather nice. I’d get somewhere in Devon near family too. This would do. Then I could bit and bob around as I fancied it!

BumpowderSneezeonAndSnot Sat 21-Apr-18 08:28:32

I want to be rich <stamps foot> I don't even want a sprawling mansion just a lovely family sized English country cottage with a garden i can fill with roses and room for a small orchard and maybe a stream at the bottom of the garden.
Even they go for silly money now

summeraupair Sat 21-Apr-18 08:31:15

I was just about to post the exact same house as @acornsandnuts - dream house and I'd get change!

A big fat smile on my face when my ex husband realises what he could have had. Oh just the thought of that has made me giggle as I wave (give a finger salute) to him as I drive past in my Aston Martin. Money is not supposed to be the answer to happiness but I’d like to give it a try just to see if it’s true. I think you could probably buy a small island somewhere, rather than spend £7 million on a house. I may just get a lottery ticket tonight now.

Mrsemcgregor Sat 21-Apr-18 08:39:20

The most expensive near me is only 1/2 the budget, it’s pretty damn lovely though

Anything I wanted and the ability to give up work.
