An apartment in the trendiest area of London, a lodge in the Perthshire hills or an entire Chateaux in Southern France – £1million can buy you properties of various shapes and sizes and we all know this is largely dependent on location. For those with a generous budget, here is some inspiration on what £1million could buy you across the globe.
A studio flat in central London
In the middle of Westmister, you’d certainly be in the thick of the big smoke with this studio flat on Victoria Street, London. A cosy 635 square feet, the studio is part of a brand new development containing 57 apartments in total. The feel is New York loft living, with an open plan flow throughout from the kitchen/dining/living space through to the bedroom with en suite. Large windows and relatively high ceilings give the feeling of space and lots of natural light. To reflect the prestigious location, everything is finished to top specification, including oiled-oak flooring, Italian designed kitchen and hand glazed terracotta tiling. Add in a resident’s-only gym and roof terrace offering panoramic views of all the famous landmarks that surround the area – including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace! This is city living indeed, albeit on the small side.
An Edinburgh Penthouse
If retiring in luxury is your style, look no further! In the heart of Edinburgh, in the popular Murrayfield area, The Limes is a luxury development of 16 apartments, exclusively available to the over 55s only. The Windsor Apartment offers panoramic views of the city and the surrounding Pentland Hills, sitting in private, landscaped grounds with secure entry and private car parking. The upmost in quality and comfort is included here, with luxury carpeting throughout, a kitchen by Leicht with Siemens appliances and Porcelanosa tiled bathrooms. The emphasis is on convenience and for a fixed price of £1,060,500 you are offered privacy and security but with easy access and links into the city centre and beyond. A perfectly spectacular place to retire!
A 1 bed apartment in the Lower East Side, New York
With great views of the Empire State Building and the One World Trade Center from the common rook terrace with fireplace and grill, this 1 bedroom apartment on a new development in Lower East Side might not have a lot of storage options as in spite of the hefty price, further storage is available for purchase, but the 24 hours attended lobby, a fitness centre and a communal yoga sun deck make up for it with flying colours
A 16 bed Châteaux in the South of France
If you are looking for something on the grander scale, this 16 bed Châteaux near Carcassonne in the South of France definitely gives you more property for your money! The 15th century Châteaux covers 9684 square foot, includes 14.7 ha of land and two renovated houses on the premises. It’s crammed with original features such as fireplaces, terracotta tiling, exposed beams and high ceilings. Comfort is ensured by updates made to the property such as double glazed windows and French doors, wood burning stoves and modern air conditioning. Lazy summer days can be spent in the expansive grounds which include an orchard, vegetable garden and natural meadows that host orchids and a variety of wild flowers. Plus, there is a pool!
