London house prices are crazy. They’ve gone up by about a fifth in the last year, from an already-high level. The average price has already climbed over £500,000 for the whole city, let alone the highly-priced core. So it’s no surprise that some people who can are quitting London and moving out, where their money goes a lot further. But just how much further can you make your money go?

If you’ve ever idly daydreamed about what you could afford with your modest, central London flat, wonder no more. We’ve collated some of the grandest homes from the rest of the country for less than a million pounds, next to their central London equivalents.

There’s this Georgian 23-bed mansion in south-west Scotland, which belonged to the earls of Galloway. It’s being sold for upwards of £595,000 ($941,000).

 

Or you might like this one bedroom flat in Pimlico, also on the market for £595,000 ($941,000).

 

You could get this huge home in the northern Scottish Highlands, with 16 bedrooms and on the market for £850,000 ($1.345 million).

 

Or there’s this one bedroom flat near Piccadilly Circus, which will also set you back £850,000 ($1.345 million).

 

How about this 11 bedroom house in Wales? It’s got views of the sea and Snowdonia, and is selling for around £549,000 ($868,000)

 

If that’s not your cup of tea, there’s this studio, with a very small bed, near Regent’s Park for just £595,000 ($941,000).

 

A 12-bedroom, 150-year-old pile in East Yorkshire for £895,000 ($1.416 million)

 

You might prefer this one bedroom flat near Tottenham Court Road, at £950,000 ($1.503 million).

 

This 14-bedroom lakeside home in central Scotland, in 4.3 acres of land by Loch Tay, for £975,000 ($1.542 million).

 

Or this studio near Piccadilly Circus, coming in just slightly higher at £995,000 ($1.574 million).
