This Side of the Pond
Notes from an Uprooted Englishwoman
May 4, 2023
When you think of ultra-expensive properties, the skyscrapers of Dubai or the sprawling modern palaces of Malibu are what probably spring to mind.
You would be incorrect in thinking these are the most spendy housing options in the world.
The most expensive home on the entire planet just sold to a new owner and it’s located on a little spit of land jutting out from my home town of Poole.
I know, I was surprised too.
North Haven Point is on Sandbanks, on a road that’s known as “Millionaire’s Row”. It sold for £13.5 million (or just under $17 million).
There are no doubt Hollywood...
