Three West Country homes to rival the world's most expensive property
Mon 24 September 2018
As the world's most expensive property is launched to the market for a cool £338 million, we thought we'd reveal what one thousandth of that price tag would get you in the glorious West Country.
Located in Hong Kong's exclusive Peak neighbourhood, the world's most expensive home offers a rare opportunity for someone to buy in one of the city's most sought-after areas, but does it really live up to its jaw-dropping price tag? According to an article in the Telegraph
, the four-bedroom home trumps the listing price of Villa Les Cedres, a 188-year-old 14-bedroom mansion in the south of France, which carried an asking price of £310 million, when it was launched to the market last year. However, unlike the opulent French abode, the interiors of Hong Kong's most valuable premises are somewhat underwhelming and in need of a little TLC.
For those of us with slightly more modest budgets, we've rounded up some tempting West Country equivalents, all on the market for around £338,000:
Rose Cottage, Umberleigh, Devon, £330,000
In an elevated position overlooking the beautiful river Taw, this charming stone cottage dates back to the mid 19th century and is for sale with fishing rights.
King William IV Cottage, Totnes, Devon, £335,000
This delightful cottage is situated in the centre of lively Totnes and has been tastefully modernised by the current owners to offer a modern twist on period charm.
Stannary Gardens, Chagford, Devon, £325,000
This top-floor apartment forms part of a new development of 15 age-exclusive homes surrounded by beautifully-landscaped communal gardens.
