With Christmas fast approaching, it’s a chance for us to move away from the deadly serious issues of Covid-19, Brexit, and the health of the UK’s housing market, to instead take a brief step into fantasy.
We’re all going to lean back into our favourite Christmas films over the coming weeks, many of which showcase some fabulous and now very famous homes, from Home Alone to Elf.
We have scoured market data around the world, studied home values, and analysed regional trends to figure out how much we would have to pay to actually live in the glorious, iconic homes of festive Hollywood.
