For some homeowners, luxury is having five bedrooms, a three-car garage, and a finished basement. For others, however, luxury knows no limits. In the United Kingdom, the ultra-rich live in beautiful mansions that look like a wild dream come true — these homes have beautiful décor, sprawling backyards, game rooms, Olympic-sized pools, massive dining areas, gorgeous bathrooms, and home theatres. Here are six posh UK homes that are mind blowing.
Located in Wappenbury, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, this decadent home offers a rich history and incredible amenities. On the market for £3.5 million, the nine-bedroom Victorian country mansion was built in 1894. George Bramley, a partner at Knight Frank, was once quoted as saying, "The Wappenbury Hall estate is a quintessential English country estate, and part of British history, as it was the home of Sir William Lyons, the founder of Jaguar car, for more than 50 years.” The estate features a large swimming pool, a summerhouse, a game room with arcade games, two tennis courts, multiple fireplaces, and a massive dining area. The home sits on more than thirty-six acres of land and has classic interior décor with a modern twist in some rooms.
This ten-bedroom home, built almost entirely using natural minerals, is listed at £25 million and located in Virginia Water, Surrey. The temperature in each room across the home's three sprawling floors can be separately controlled using an iPad. The device is also designed to control music, lighting, and electronic blinds. Sitting on approximately five acres, the home features ultra-modern décor that gives it a unique look both inside and out. It also has an open-concept floor plan on every level and massive glass walls and windows to provide expansive views of the beautiful outdoor gardens. Owners of the home enjoy a number of amenities, including an interior swimming pool, private theatre-style screening room, massive wine cellar, and beautiful marble bathroom featuring a walk-in rainfall shower.
