What will the average property price buy you around the UK?

Houses for £300,000

The former cornmill's kitchen

What's your budget for your next property? The odds are that it's around the £300,000 mark, as the latest Zoopla price data has revealed that the average property in the UK is currently worth £299,764.

But whether or not that will buy you what you want depends a lot on where you are. In Scotland, for example, it'll get you a grand four-bedroom house with two turrets, whereas in London you're more likely to be looking at a one-bedroom flat in Zone 3.

Here are Zoopla's picks of averagely-priced properties from around the UK.
