EVER wondered what it’s like to be a squillionaire? These incredible homes for sale reveal a glimpse of the how Britain’s mega-wealthy really live.
From the 16th century Scottish castle to sky-high London penthouses and a family home worth £57million – all of these are currently available to buy in the UK.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, most of the “super-premium” properties are in London. But there are also some amazing places to live outside the capital.
Here we reveal 12 of the best from across the UK…
Seven-bed house, The Boltons, Chelsea, London – £57.5million
The new owners of this house, thought to be Britain’s most expensive, will have to shell out nearly £7million in stamp duty on top of the eye-watering sale price.
But the gorgeous Victorian villa boasts one of the most sought-after addresses in London along with 9,989 sq ft of space.
It has a massive master bedroom occupying the whole first floor plus another six bedrooms, a cinema, gym and open plan living spaces leading to a whopping 94ft garden.
Three-bed flat, Lennox Gardens, Knightsbridge, London –£35million
It may seem like a ridiculous amount for a flat – beyond the reach most lottery winners – but this is a sprawling luxury property spread across three 19th century listed buildings just round the corner from Harrods.
As well as the three main bedrooms there is a study and another two staff bedrooms in the annexe.
Pampered oligarchs can relax in their very own steam room and sauna within the apartment.
Eight-bed house, Pembridge Sqaure, Notting Hill, London –£35million
This glorious end-of-terrace is all sleek luxury and understated, light-filled calm.
The whole first floor is a dedicated master suite with two dressing rooms, a large en-suite bathroom with a walk in shower and a private seating area.

But that’s no problem as it also has staff quarters, plus a spa and underground car park.
Penthouse flat, Chesham Place, Belgravia, London –£34.5million
For this kind of money you might expect more than 5,626 sq ft and four bedrooms.

It also boasts 1,892 square feet of wraparound terracing with views across London’s skyline.

Yearning for the country gent lifestyle? Buy a stately home and you can shoot pheasant and partridge in your own backyard.

The agent says house is in the “classical Georgian style” but inside it boasts nearly 18,000 sq ft of modern luxury with spectacular views over the South Downs.
A hot tub, a bowling alley and an absolutely enormous garden – 40 acres – make this a very comfortable retreat from the Big Smoke.
And its location is handy for polo at Cowdray Park and motor and horse racing at Goodwood, if that’s your sort of thing.
Seven-bedroom villa, Totteridge Common, Middlesex –£16million
Half an hour from central London, this swanky pad sits in a peaceful 11.5 acres of grounds with a private golf course next door.

Gated off street parking for four cars and a sauna and gym complete the multimillionaire’s tick list.

This is a WAG’s dream. Set in an exclusive private estate in the stockbroker belt, it has 16,000 sq ft of space inside.

There is also a “leisure complex” and room for two live-in staff.
Penthouse apartment, Heron Tower, City of London –£13.5million
Want a view you can show off? This four-bed penthouse is spread over the 35th and 36th floors of a London skyscraper, offering the highest of high living.

It has 53 acres, ten bedrooms, eight reception rooms, a gun room and a “world famous” walled garden.
