With the recent news that a Knightsbridge mansion overlooking Hyde Park is to be sold for a record-breaking £210m ($274m), some of the UK’s other priciest properties have been revealed.
Data from regulated property buyer Good Move found some of the most expensive house sales across the nation in the last 12 months.
1. 11-bedroom property in Belgravia, London (£25.5m)
Unsurprisingly, the capital was home to the most expensive house sold in the last year. Excluding the recent Knightsbridge sale, this sprawling Belgravia mansion (main picture), a stone's throw from Hyde Park, was among London’s priciest houses. Sold for a cool £25.5m, the property boasts 11 bedrooms, two roof terraces and lift access to all floors.

Not far from Birmingham’s city centre, this gorgeous mansion in Edgbaston sold for £4,725,000. Featuring eight bedrooms, a huge garden and an indoor swimming pool, it’s easy to see why.

“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,” Ross Counsell, director at Good Move, said.
“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.”
