WE all know that London house prices can be on the extreme end of the scale, but how much could you really buy in Wiltshire for the price of a three-bed home in the capital? 

The average house price in Swindon is £262,853 meaning that you could get more than 19 homes for the price of this £5million Mayfair terrace. 

And if you’re going to have a property empire, why not mix it up a bit? 

But first, let's look at this London residency:
