'What would you buy if you won the lottery?' A question often asked by people dreaming of hitting the jackpot.

For some, designer items or a flash new car could be the answer, but for most a luxurious home would be the top of the list.

And the most pricey properties for sale in the area could be someone's home of dreams.

From a 17th Century country house, to a barn conversion - there is an incredible range of properties on offer.

At the upper end of the market are homes with their own cinema, games room and swimming pool. In one town though, the most pricey property, a four bedroom bungalow, is more attainable.

Nick Rickett, director of Norton Rickett, explained why the area is proving such a popular place to live.

He said: "Because of covid it's changed people's work patterns. Now, working from home more there's an acceptance of that and people have realised the importance of working to live rather than living to work.

"People are enjoying the lifestyle and the importance of space.

"We live in a beautiful area with certain buildings resonant of Oxford or the Cotswolds but not at the premium prices.

"It's really accessible to London if you still need to go for work or entertainment.

"As well as a really good standard of living that's affordable, we've got the benefit of a great range of schools both private and state."

He added: "We normally have a 50-50 split between local people within a 20-mile radius of Stamford and other people from further afield.

"Over the last half a year we've definitely seen more of an uplift of families moving from London to this area."

Here's a list of the most expensive homes on the market in Stamford, Rutland, Bourne, Market Deeping, Oundle and the surrounding villages according to real estate company, Zoopla.
