London accounted for 78% of these high-end deals, however, the South East (15%), South West (3%), East of England (2%), North West (1%) ) and the West Midlands (0.2%) also saw a number of homes selling for £ 3million or more.

Outside of London, Elmbridge ranks as the nation’s leading real estate hotspot with 31 homes sold last year. Buckinghamshire also saw the number of high-end houses trading hands in double digits (14), as did Windsor and Maidenhead (11).

Teignbridge had the highest selling price outside London at £ 6.2million, with Stratford-on-Avon also breaking the £ 6million mark (£ 6.15million).

CEO of Enness Global Mortgages, Islay Robinson, said: “With so much talk about London’s main market, you could be forgiven for forgetting that a lot of houses change hands for huge sums outside the capital.

“We’ve seen foreclosure spur an increase in buyer demand for larger homes with more outdoor space and it’s no different in the high end, with high end home buyers also keen to improve the potential for pandemic ownership.

“While the higher price of real estate means that this high-end business has been largely concentrated in the south, the Northwest has undoubtedly consolidated its place as the main real estate hotspot of the North. .
