Up north, that kind of money will get you this seven-bedroom manor house, “one of the principal residences of the Saddleworth area.” It has a side wing that could be converted into a separate property, as well as a 1.6 acre paddock. The London equivalent? A “light and airy” two-bed flat in Earls Court. And yes, this is the nicest photo of it we could find.
This five-bedroom, 3000 sq.ft. Georgian property features a snug and a drawing room. It’s in Stamford Bridge, eight miles outside of York. For the same price you could buy… a garage just off the Peckham Road.
At the £100k level, up north you’re looking at something like this two-bedroom house in Shipley. In London, meanwhile, that kind of money gets you a 10ft by 8ft studio flat. That’s about the size of a snooker table. There is no room for a bed. Estate agent Matthew Vine said: “I can stand in the middle of the room and touch the walls! This is, however, a great little buy.” Hmm.
