There are now 5,843 streets in London with an average house price of £1 million+, according to Zoopla figures released in September. We take a look at what a million-pound budget would buy you today, from central one-beds to large family homes further out in the suburbs.

Elvaston Place, South Kensington, SW7

1 bedroom apartment | £1,000,000

Your million pounds would buy quality and location in the form of this bright one-bedroom apartment in South Kensington.

Maida Vale, Little Venice, W9

2 bedroom apartment | £1,000,000

Little Venice offers a wealth of charming period properties, such as this two-bedroom apartment set in an imposing red-brick mansion block. The nearby canal, with its attractive barges and waterside cafes, is the beating heart of this historic and sought-after district.

Devan Grove, Manor House, N4

3 bedroom apartment | £999,995

Moving further out into Zone 3 now, this sixth-floor, three-bedroom apartment is part of the popular Woodberry Down development.
