25 Jul Surrey mansion offers a slice of luxury
With sales of million pound homes increasing at their fastest rate since 2006, there is a clear revival at the top end of the market suggesting that the wealthy have become even more financially savvy through the economic downturn, according to Barton Wyatt.
James Wyatt, partner of the Surrey based luxury estate agency, said: “With house prices having risen so dramatically over the last decade it is no surprise that there are more and more million pound property owners in Britain today.
“Here in Virginia Water, just 40 minutes from Central London, we have seen home values increase and there seems to be no limit – a £30 million super mansion has just been proposed for building on the Wentworth Estate.”
But it is interesting to note that it isn’t just Brits buying these multi-million pound homes, Mr Wyatt said.
“We have been flooded with affluent buyers from across the globe searching for property with clients from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Malaysia and more recently our first ever Chinese buyer seeking properties with price tags anywhere from £5 million to £30 million,” he added
