In this special edition of What X Buys You, UrbanTurf’s Lark Turner — reporting from London this week — looks at how far $1.5 million would go across the pond versus DC.

A Lofty Two-Bedroom in Southwest London

It’s not in London’s most desirable neighborhood, but this two-bedroom with a view of the River Thames is in a nice residential area with plenty of green space, near a neighborhood described to me by an Englishman as a “quite funky” place to be. (Pretty sure that’s a selling point.) It’s just 20 minutes outside some of the city’s most desirable areas via public transit, with a bit less square footage than the property above. The property is reminiscent of a unit that might sit on DC’s Church Street — it has high ceilings criss-crossed by beams, a long 30-foot living room, a private balcony, and a galley-style kitchen.
