10 of the world’s most expensive homes…Yours for £980million


It’s true you don’t get much for your money these days on the property market.

And, never more so in London’s posh Mayfair.

This week, Britain’s smallest £1million property went on the market.

The one- bedroom flat on Berkeley Street comes with a kitchen, bathroom and living room.

But there will be little space for furniture as it’s smaller than a London underground tube carriage.

If you’ve got a little more cash to spare, why not take a look at some of the world’s most expensive properties….
