A RECORD-BREAKING EuroMillions jackpot has been scooped by a winner from France – but Brit ticket-holders can console themselves ahead of the next big draw with some imaginary dream-house shopping.
Although next Tuesday’s prize is a decidedly smaller £14million, there’s every chance no one will pick a winning ticket – meaning roll-overs could snowball as they did in recent weeks.
The £184m treasure chest was finally claimed last night after a nail-biting wait.
And those crushed by their loss may want to comfort themselves with the sort of homes they could have bought had they nabbed the lucky ticket.
For a neat £40million – barely a dent in the overall prize – the winner could have bought a 10-bedroom home with panoramic views over London’s Hampstead Heath and its own spa.
The colossal home in North London boasts a glass lift that flits between the three floors and comes with two acres of land.
The lucky homeowners are treated to their own private view over Hampstead Heath – one of the city’s most beautiful spots.
This imposing mansion is fit for a King (or a footballer), as it’s bursting with luxurious features and state of the art technology.
Situated in almost four acres of perfectly manicured lawns, this stunning seven-bedroom mansion designed by architect Julian Bicknell was on the market for £22.49million.
Inside the country home is a domed and galleried entrance hall, a cinema room, a semi-circular orangery that links to a swimming pool, sauna, spa and gym.
St Saviours is a Grade II listed seven-bedroom church-home located in the heart of Knightsbridge, London, and measures a whopping 12,102sq ft.
The cathedral-like mansion boasts a magnificent drawing room with 12-metre vaulted ceilings, original stone pillars and oak beams providing a stunning area for comfortable living and spectacular entertaining.
And with its seven bedrooms – with seven bathrooms – and five reception rooms, this pad is the perfect home for entertaining guests.
The property also includes a glass lift, a cinema with a bar and an entire floor dedicated to leisure – complete with a swimming pool, gym, treatment room, sauna and steam room.
This property is made up of two beautiful “his and hers” beachfront homes – La Baie and La Plage – situated on Sandbanks Peninsula, with each having been individually designed to provide the ultimate luxury living.
La Baie and La Plage are both arranged over four floors, with both offering magnificent views across Poole Bay from all principal rooms and balconies with direct beach access from the rear garden.
Sandbanks boasts the largest natural harbour in Europe (the second largest natural harbour in the world) with miles of golden sand and sheltered waters.
Set in a discreet location in the middle of nearly 37-acres of lush Buckinghamshire countryside, this traditional-style farmhouse boasts ten bedrooms, eight bathrooms and nine reception rooms.
Decorated with open fires and rustic oak-panelled walls, this house is every inch the country farmhouse of dreams.
The property’s key features include an indoor leisure complex, a tennis court, a paddock, orchards, a 48ft cinema room, an oil-fired Aga in its huge kitchen and a climatically-controlled wine cellar.
