A red brick mansion, with indoor swimming pool.

A 14-bedroom Georgian country hotel.

A five-bedroom converted farm house, with 20 acres of land.

All properties you could pick up for the same price as a 10ft-wide two-bedroom house that recently went on sale in South London.  

After the slimline £800,000 Dulwich home caused Londoners to issue an all too familiar groan, we had a poke around on RightMove.co.uk to twist the knife further, compiling a list of properties outside the UK capital that fetch the same sum.

Have a look through the options below, and ask yourself whether the bright lights of London are really worth the inflated prices.
