If you were wondering, should you win the lottery, or several lotteries, what the most expensive property you could purchase in London would be, look no further.

It is worth keeping in mind that these are the properties that state the price outright. There may be more expensive properties but their price is only available on application.

1.

The priciest property for sale in London at the moment, according to data compiled from Savills (SVS.L), Zoopla and Rightmove (RMV.L), is an eight-bed terraced house in Belgrave Square, Belgravia that is listed for £77.5m ($103.7m) on Zoopla.

Images and details of this property are sparse. Aileen Prendergast, Zoopla’s spokesperson, explained that this is likely “down to privacy and the fact that many ultra-high net worth individuals don't want a digital footprint online for their property.”
