As the Euromillions jackpot reaches a frankly crazy £112 million, we thought we’d put together our ideal shopping list for when we scoop the prize. Now just to wait for the results!
1. One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, SW1X – £18.95 million
One of the most iconic addresses to live at, One Hyde Park is actually next door to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and if you manage to scrabble together the money to buy it, you can enjoy all of the hotel amenities. With access to their gym, swimming pool, underground parking and concierge services, it really is the icing on the cake to a 2-bed property with 3 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms and unbeatable views of London.
2. Chester Square, Belgravia, SW1W – £28 million
Currently the most expensive listing on the Harrods Estates website, this house comes complete with 8 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms, 7 bathrooms, a roof terrace and even a gym. It’s newly refurbished and perfect for those of us who like to entertain (just a few) guests.
It even comes with its own bloody cinema room with beds as seats. Double beds, people.
3. Lygon Place, Belgravia, SW1W – £22.5 million
This is a substantial Grade II listed building that’s set over an impressive 4 floors … with a lift. For those days when you just can’t be bothered to walk up the stairs, right? It has a grand 7 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms, 7 bathrooms and incorporates modern technology with original period features.
4. Manresa Road, Chelsea, SW3 – £29.5 million
Okay so since when is a flat more expensive than a house? I guess when it’s in Chelsea and has 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 4 reception rooms and a pretty stunning communal garden. Slightly confused on what a “flat” actually means but this is certainly one to trump all the others.
5. York Terrace East, Regent’s Park, NW1 – £15.95 million
A very interesting mix of old kitsch and modern features, this apartment has nine bedrooms and literally looks like some kind of old royal palace. You’d probably want to curl up in a corner because you’d be too scared to break anything or move a velvet drape out of place.
6. South Bank Tower, Southwark, SE1 – £25 million
Bag yourself an apartment in this tower and conquer your fear of heights at the same time, that’s because this place is set across the 39th and 40th floors of the South Bank Tower. All your modern interior dreams will come true with the double-height living room, floor-to-ceiling windows and even an inside-outside water feature. Have you ever heard of such magnificence under one roof?!
Just look at that view …
