Friday property porn challenge

So after disparaging that Essex monstrosity, this weeks challenge, if you choose to accept it, is simple. 

Budget is same as that - £9.5million max. Post your choice. As if you were spending your own money. And had to actually live in it. Any location you want :)
 

The thai one is cracking and cheap. Calling broker.

The dux links to is nice, but I'd wanna get rid of all that old wood innit

I don't get why you would want a swimming pool if it wasn't at least 25m.  All these mansions have a 15m pool.  You can't even do a proper swim in it. 

for 8 million that is very ordinary

Yeah, but you are paying for the location and the view and to be able to recreate a scene from the sound of music every time you step outside the house.

Thanks Abs. I think our combined threadkilling efforts have put this one to rest. 

What do you reckon is the cheapest 5 bedroom detached freehold in the country currently for sale?

Oh you bastard, that is a challenge that deserves it's own thread.

I still have you licked for price and mine is skanksville inside

Jesus RR - £109k.  Is it possible to buy something for under 100k?

Definitely a former crackhouse or skagpit that last one.

I think the 109k'er is better as you could move in on day 1.  The other one is derelict.   

I do intestacy sales and regularly sell stuff for under £100k but it's usually rather smaller than 5 beds and in pretty poor condition.

Mac I sense how cold that house is in the winter just looking at the photos.  You’d need another £9m for the heating bill for the first year.

I looked at that one, but it comes across as more like a museum than a house, really uncomfortable and probably freezing in winter. Also I thought the faux neoclassical swimming pool looked a bit naff.

Iguana, that 40 mill one has been on the market for several years. You'd think 25 would get it.

i like Chamonix Mont Blanc but not sure I would pay $8 million for it.
