In this 2-minute read, we discover one of the World’s most expensive palaces and why people in our local area prefer their own simpler home comforts.
Close your eyes and imagine the palace of your dreams.
On second thoughts, don’t close your eyes because you won’t be able to read the rest of this article.
Right then, when you think of palaces the one which springs to mind for many people in the UK, and indeed the World, is Buckingham Palace.
Truly a place fit for a Queen. And here’s why.
Queen Elizabeth’s London home is worth between £1billion and £2 billion depending on what internet source you look at.
Quite a difference in opinion but one thing is for sure, and that’s with the following features and benefits Buckingham Palace is up there with the most desirable residences in the World.
The palace has 775 rooms. That includes 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 78 bathrooms, 19 staterooms and 78 bathrooms.
And if that wasn’t enough to gain a Royal seal of approval it also boasts a cinema, swimming pool, post office, police station, clinic and even a cash machine.
The latter, we find a little ironic as we’ve always been led to believe the Queen doesn’t carry cash.
But according to a survey carried out last year among 2000 homeowners across the UK, you don’t need gold plated taps to make a home comfortable.
The survey, carried out by a hotel company, listed 50 things people said were truly home comforts.
And in our experience in our local area, the findings ring true.
Here are the top ten.
1 - Your bed
2 - A proper night’s sleep
3 - Home-cooked food
4 - Comfortable sofa
5 – Family around you
6 - Your favourite film or TV programme
7 - A cup of tea
8 - Getting into your comfy clothes
9 - Your own toilet
10 - Laptop/tablet/computer
We’d probably add reliable, fast broadband to the list.
