Fancy living in a mansion? You don't need to be a millionaire to buy one. We bring you the pick of British and foreign mansions for sale priced at less than £600,000.
Who says you need to be a millionaire to afford a mansion? A property’s price depends as much on location as on style, size and finish and, if you are prepared to move away from London and the South East of England, you can easily find lavish manor houses and opulent villas for little more than half a million pounds. One such is Firlands House, in Forres, Moray. Built in 1885, this elegant six-bedroom mansion is the quintessential Victorian country house. Although it needs modernisation, it oozes period charm, with plenty of ornate cornicing and plaster work, marble fireplaces, mosaic floor tiles and a beautiful cast-iron staircase. A roof terrace commands spectacular views. Outside, the mature grounds, which extend to two acres, feature a fabulous terrace and many fine trees. Offers over £550,000 through CKD Galbraith.
