Can I afford to buy Sherlock Holmes’ house?

Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to move into Walford and own a slice of the true East End? Or what it would set you back to live in super-sleuth Sherlock Holmes’ Baker Street flat? How about settling down into the vast estate of Downtown Abbey?

Well, wonder no more. We’ve created this infographic exploring the cost of buying the UK’s favourite fictional homes – from Del Boy’s manor in Mandela House to Mark and Jez’s pad from Peep Show. And if you wanted to make buying these fictional homes into a reality, our mortgage experts have offered up top tips on the things you need to watch out for.

Feel free to share, you’ll find the code to embed this on your website at the bottom of this page.

Now, for a few caveats. We clearly haven’t viewed these properties, but we’ve used a number of factors (such as local value of properties, inflation and other studies produced on this topic) when estimating these property prices. Not all of these properties exist in real life and the fictional homes you see here have been valued purely for entertainment purposes only, not as recommendations to buy or financial advice.
