Three more than a million houses
According to Zoopla there are around 750,000 property millionaires in Britain and with prices rising each year this figure is set to increase.
On their website they have a handy little calculator that allows you to input your address to find out when your property is likely to hit that magic figure.
I’m not going to be rich any time soon though, it going to take an estimated 43 years for my house to achieve a valuation of £1m or more.
There are currently 10 properties on the market in the Sheffield area with a guide price of £1m or more ranging from a block of flats close to Sheffield city centre and a six-bedroom detached farmhouse in Ughill.
Here is a small selection of those available – and, as the estate agents are wont to say they are all well worth looking at.
Platts Farm, Ughill, Sheffield
This is definitely one for horse lovers. Platts Farm is an outstanding six-bedroom character property which sits in approximately eight acres of gardens, grounds and paddocks within the beautiful Peak District National Park.
Platts Farm is believed to date back to 1347 where it was within the stewardship of the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem.
The property has been home to historical figures including the Earl of Shrewsbury, Bess of Hardwick, Duke of Norfolk and was utilised as an alehouse during the 17th century, before being converted to a farm with two adjoining cottages in the 19th century.
The property has been rebuilt and refurbished by the current owners to create generously proportioned accommodation with a wealth of period features.
It also has a two-bedroom self-contained annexe and Derbyshire gritstone stables and outbuildings.
