This also includes en-suite and family bathroom, a large extensive garden and even has easy access to local schools and transport.
This is what £495,000 can get you in Stoke-on-Trent, but what can it get you in other locations?
London is a place known for it’s high budget accommodations, being the most expensive place to live in the UK. So you can imagine that £495,000 isn’t going to quite get you as much as it would in Stoke-on-Trent. But let’s take a look anyway.
You can get a lovely 2-bedroom apartment by The Royal Docks in London for that price. It includes 2 bathrooms, an open plan kitchen, reception room and a balcony.
While this is a very nice property, it does not give you as much room as the family home in Stoke-on-Trent. It is also quite a large budget for just an apartment.
If you decided to go for a property in York, you’d definitely be getting more for your money than you would in the likes of London.
This detached property is located in Copmanthorpe, York and has 4 bedrooms. It has 3 reception rooms, a large open plan kitchen and a luxury bathroom/shower room. You also get a workshop garage and a large garden for that price, not too bad at all.
A budget of around £495,000 will tend to get you a nice 3 to 4-bedroom house or a nice apartment closer to the City Centre.
Now Altrincham is a bit pricier, with the average house price being almost £200,000 more than York, and over £300,000 more than in Stoke-on-Trent.
With the budget of £495,000, this could get you a 3-bedroom apartment with a beautiful roof garden. The property is located in Hale, which is near to Altrincham and has good local transport access. It has transformed into a sleek, stylish penthouse, suitable for anyone with a luxury lifestyle.
Not exactly a family home though, if that is what you are after.
This property is a 3-bedroom detached house located in Guildford, Surrey. It features 3 double bedrooms, an en-suite shower room, 2 reception rooms and a garage and space up for to 4 vehicles. This property is priced at only £485,000, being under budget by £10,000.
The location gives it easy access to the local train stations and it’s close to the A331, A3 and M3. Another benefit to this property is that it is situated opposite a primary school, making it ideal for families.
This kind of home is relatively cheap for Surrey though, and hard to find.

Cornwall is a place where £130,000 will most likely get you a flat or a 2-bedroom terraced house at most. This makes sense because the average house price there is £247,536 and it’s a sought after place to live.
But let’s take a look at what that money could get you anyway.
Here we have a 2-bedroom end of terrace house located in Callington, Cornwall. It features uPVC double glazed windows with two parking spaces outside and an enclosed garden.
