Commenting on the research, Ross Counsell, Director at Good Move, said: “It’s always exciting to look at these luxurious properties but, no matter how big or small, we all need somewhere we can call home.

“What’s really interesting is noticing the price differences across the nation and seeing how much more, or how much less, similar properties might be worth, depending on where they are in the country.”
