It's got a ton of traditional features that we just love: wooden floors; panelled walls; original shutters; open fires; and, an essential for any period home lover, a drawing room. The garden is beautiful, filled with mature plants, an orchard (obviously) and a veg patch.
7. A barn conversion in Norfolk
From cowshed to contemporary gem, this £1 million property has everything you would want from a barn conversion.

Fancy a bolt hole on the coast? This elegant home sit in its own beautiful grounds on a hill above Whitsand Bay in Devon. It's got five bedrooms, three reception rooms, a formal dining room, walk in pantry and a farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room. Plus, there are four outbuildings, which if converted with the correct permissions could provide further accommodation.
10. A two bedroom flat in London
Being a millionaire does make you feel like royalty, so you are obviously going to need a royal residence. We don't think you can really get closer than a flat on Buckingham Palace Road. It's London, so we all know you don't get much for your money, but this two bedroom flat is actually pretty light and spacious, situated on the top floor of a Grade II listed period building – and the location is pretty insane.
