Buying a home for more than a million pounds may seem like a dream for most of us, but it’s a reality for some lucky buyers. In fact, the number of million-pound house sales reached a record high in 2017 – up by 5% on the year before, according to Lloyds Bank Private Banking.
With rapidly rising house prices, the number of million-pound properties up for grabs is likely to keep on increasing. That’s why it’s time to take a look at some of the lavish million-pound homes that we currently have on offer in Brentwood…
