58% of Brits would move if they won the lottery - so what could you buy?

Updated: 
Though this might come as a surprise to many people, Colin and Chris Weir - who won an inconceivable £162 million in last week's Euromillions draw - have decided to stay in their three bedroom house on the Scottish coast. According to research from Clydsedale and Yorkshire banks though, 58 percent of us would move to a new home after a lottery win.

So what takes your fancy? Hypothetically speaking of course. A Mayfair mansion, Caribbean paradise, country estate.....
No expense spared

What about purchasing the UK's most expensive house? It's been on the market for six years, so you might even be able to do a deal... Original asking price? £75 million. And what do you get for your money? 24 bedrooms, heated marble driveway, five swimming pools and a helipad - not bad really.

Property in the capital

Always fancied yourself as a bit of a city slicker? Then your lottery winnings could net you a Mayfair mansion. This five bedroom property moments from Hyde Park and Green Park will set you back £8,450,000. It boasts six floors, huge reception rooms, all the bedrooms are en-suite, there's a courtyard and of course the all important vault - to keep your valuables safe.

Country estate

If the country life is more your thing, this Grade II Georgian Mansion in Oxfordshire could be right up your street. In the wonderfully named hamlet of Crazies Hill it boasts 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 80 acres of land, a swimming pool and boating lake. I particularly liked the fact that the description states; "there is a secondary access into the village for staff and service vehicles." You don't want your 'staff' using the main driveway now do you?

Further afield

Perhaps you've always wanted a place abroad; though of course if you had the Euromillions jackpot you could have both. A steal at €6 million, this traditional stone farmhouse in Tuscany is the epitome of traditional luxury. With 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 16 acres of land (including a 1,000 tree olive grove which produces top quality oil) and of course a swimming pool, it's hard to beat. Oh, and did I mention it's setting in the rolling hills of San Quirico D'Orcia is a World Heritage Site?

What about your own tropical island? Buck Island, in the British Virgin Islands is 43 acres of Caribbean island paradise surrounded by beautiful blue oceans. The main house is on the cliff top of the island, with secondary accommodation dotted around - totalling 12 bedrooms in all. There's also a swimming pool and of course a berth for your luxury yacht. And, for convenience there's an acre of land with a three bedroom house on the mainland (a short boat ride away) in Tortola too. This place is so exclusive that it's price on application, but I reckon that £162 million should do it.

Right, I'm off to buy my lottery ticket...
