What the average price of a home will get you across Britain


The average home in the UK currently costs £299,764, according to Zoopla. However, how much property this amount of money will actually get you varies drastically.

Location really is key when it comes to making your money reach even further with an investment property. And across Britain, the average house price can buy you anything from a studio apartment in the capital to a four-bedroom mansion in Scotland.

The following 10 examples are all homes listed on Zoopla costing roughly the average house price.

1. Four-bedroom historic listed hall in Lochgoilhead, Scotland

Currently on sale at £275,000 this historic, C listed hall offers stunning views and a fortified tower under a slated roof.

The property comes with four bedrooms and four living areas and is set in 2.5 acres of private garden.

Probably not a massive surprise, the property is also in desperate need of renovation on both, the outside and the inside.

2. Four-bedroom house in Skerlmorlie, Scotland

This lovely home boasts four bedrooms and two turret rooms and currently accepts offers around £295,000. Not even to mention the wine cellar.

According to Zoopla, it’s also located in and close to some of Scotland’s most “bustling holiday towns”.

3. Five-bedroom detached house in Carmarthenshire, Wales

Another home currently priced at £295,000, this Welsh beauty comes with five bedrooms and a spacious living area with feature fireplace.

4. Three-bedroom barn conversion in County Durham, North East

This former corn mill has been converted into a three-bedroom family home with underfloor heating throughout and currently has got a price tag of £299,000 attached.

The property is located in England’s North East and comes with a tremendous amount of outdoor space.

5. Three-bedroom cottage in Richmondshire, Yorkshire and the Humber

This Georgian cottage, made out of stone and complete with original sandstone fireplace can currently be bought for £289,500.

6. One-bedroom flat, Edinburgh

Another option would be this one-bedroom flat in Edinburgh, just 15 minutes away from haymarket railway station. A seemingly spacious option for a single bedroom flat, this property, this property may tick some of the most important boxes.

7. Two-bedroom flat, Cambridge

Only two miles from the historic centre in Cambridge, this property will currently set you back £295,000. The apartment comes with built-in wardrobes, a modern bathroom and communal gardens.

8. One-bedroom mews house, Enfield

With a price tag of £299,950 this property comes in just over Zoopla’s average, but also gives that extra bit of luxury with a great location on a private road close on Enfield Island Village.

9. Two-bedroom flat, Bristol

Bristol’s house prices have been skyrocketing over the last couple of years. And there seems to be no stopping in sight.

At £295,000, this apartments offers decent transportation links to Bristol’s city centre and a good size.

10. One-bedroom flat, West Norwood, London

You may miss out on all the luxury a Scottish mansion can offer you, but for those living and working in the capital, this one-bedroom flat for £299,950 offers a good options.
