How much is your home worth? I guess it’s not as much as this one…

There’s a new record in the UK. Britain’s most expensive home has just been sold for a rather nifty £140 million.

The average price of a house in the UK is £228,000 so that means that the anonymous Russian buyer that recently bought Park Place in the village of Remenham, near Henley-on-Thames, 35 miles outside of London could have instead bought over 600 “average homes”.

£140 million buys a lot of home though. The property is a 300 year old property in nearly 600 acres of land and includes stables and a boat house.

During the recent recession, the property development industry has taken a bit of a hammering.

Property developer Mike Spink however shows how it should be done.

He bought Park Place back in 2007 for a “mere” £42 million.

5 years later after reportedly spending several million on renovations he’s sold it for £98 million more than he paid for it. Not a bad return over 4 years.

Movie fans that saw the recent remake of the St. Trinians film would recognise the house as it was used as the school in the film.

Oh, and I forgot to mention but it’s also got its own golf course attached to it and a ghost by the name of Mary Blandy who was accused of poisoning her father in the 1700s is said to live there.
