Have you ever dreamed of owning your own property empire in Bucks, or an extravagant residency in London?

Well, it’s time to put your metal to the test and see which option really comes out on top. 

When the average asking price for a property in Bucks is £414,257, according to Zoopla, does it really make more sense to have one London home when you could have 18 here? 

However, if you’ve got that sort of money to spend then surely you’d be after a bit of variety. From maisonettes to semi-detached homes and millionaire pads.

But first, let's look at the London flat:


Queen Street, Mayfair, London

Described as fully refurbished to an immaculate standard, this three-bedroom flat in Mayfair comes in at a whopping £5million. 

Keeping some period elements throughout including the original façades the property aims to provide contemporary living in a historic setting. 

However, for this extreme price, you would not get any private outdoor space, sports facilities or parking. 

Is it really worth it?
