Let’s face it, pre-construction townhomes tends to start with a huge price tag – and this can mean several (even tens) of millions depending on location. The size and amenities of a home also tends to set it apart as pure luxury. Design of course is another factor – a hyper-modern home built with state-of-the-art materials and eco-friendly features, could warrant pure luxury – as could, on the other end of the spectrum, a Grade II-listed period home.
In some areas of the country however, a dream home could mean semi-detached with a garden. In London for example, nearly half of all residential homes are worth over £1 million. Some of the priciest luxury homes in the capital are nestled on mews’ or quiet private streets. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in West London’s Kensington, where you’ll find Britain’s most exclusive streets. Rural luxury is different again. You’ll get grounds rather than a garden and interior square footage that would dwarf a similarly priced home in the capital or the south east.
Always wanted an indoor swimming pool? A simple search on Prime Location will reveal there’s more available in the UK than you might think. Because of the space they use (and, of course, the ongoing heating and cleaning costs) homes with indoor swimming pools are often associated with luxury homes – many of which can also offer their own sauna, gym and even changing rooms too.
