With recent news that the super-rich in London are now opting to rent rather than buy luxury property in an attempt to avoid stamp duty it leads us to wonder, if money was no object, just how fabulous a home could you rent? We have searched the internet looking at high end properties (tough job but someone has to do it) and we have put together a list of the most expensive and breathtaking properties available!
1. Regents Park, London
For the modest sum of £151,667 per month (plus fees) this 5-bedroom terraced house near Regent’s Park in London could be yours! The property comes fully furnished and boasts its own private garden and garage parking.
2. Holmby Hills, Bel Air
This next stunning property is in the Holmby Hills in Bel Air. It has 8 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms and even boasts separate Billiards and cards rooms. The property rents for $150, 00 a month (approximately £104,000)!
3. Aspen, Colarado
If you lust after a wilderness retreat this timeless log cabin in Aspen Colorado is sure to leave you wide eyed. With 4 bedrooms and its very own spa, we think this is the ultimate in lodge living. Rent for this property would set you back a cool $105,000 a month, that’s roughly £73,000, making this one of the more ‘reasonably priced’ properties on our list!
4. Caryona, Tuscany
Situated in the hilltop town of Cortona in Tuscany, this beautifully converted farmhouse boasts an impressive 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms and even has its own slice of history with an original 17th century fresco in the Limonaia (Lemon House, this is where those in charge of a lemon grove would have lived and is detached from the original property). This Tuscan Dream is available to rent for $120,000 (£83,266) a month.
5. Champs Elysees, Paris
Rounding off our list of truly spectacular rental properties is this gorgeous French Apartment. With views of the Eiffel tower and an opulent interior, it’s hard not to fall in love with this, but you wouldn’t expect any less from Paris, the City of Love. This is available to rent for £30,000 a month.
We hope you have enjoyed looking through this list, we certainly enjoyed did making it. After seeing the staggering amounts some people pay on rent we have been left feeling very envious but also relieved that our rental rates come nowhere remotely close to some of these!
