We all enjoy looking at the online property portals at the properties that the vast majority of us can never hope to afford short of a significant lottery win. Below is a selection of some of the most expensive properties currently on the market in the UK today.
For a bit of fun we have stated after each property’s list price the monthly mortgage payment for that property based on a 60% repayment mortgage over a twenty five year term. Needless to say if you were looking at buying one of these properties please do not rely on these figures.
