If money was no issue, would you prefer to buy this London flat or own an entire property empire in Oxfordshire? 

The London housing market has been booming for years, so we all know that the cost of a property in the capital is on the pricier end of the scale. 

With the average house price in Oxfordshire coming in at around £439,924, according to Zoopla, you could buy yourself more than 10 homes for the same price as just one in London. 

But dare to dream, if you’ve got that much cash to splash you can definitely afford some variety. 

But first, let's look at this London residency: 


Queen Street, Mayfair, London

Herald Series:

Described as fully refurbished to an immaculate standard, this three-bedroom flat in Mayfair comes in at a whopping £5million. 

Keeping some period elements throughout including the original façades the property aims to provide contemporary living in a historic setting. 

However, for this extreme price, you would not get any private outdoor space, sports facilities or parking. 

Is it really worth it? 

Here's what you could get around Oxfordshire for the same price:
