Sherlock Holmes – £14,779 per sq m

Top of the pile is 221b, a terraced home in London’s Baker Street, owned by world famous super sleuth, Sherlock Holmes. Foxtons estimates that this prestigious prime London property, located within the NW1 postcode, would command no less than £14,779 per sq m in the current market. At 173.5 sq m, it’s also the third largest property of those analysed by Foxtons.

Absolutely Fabulous – £14,568 per sq m

Hot on the heels of Sherlock Holmes for the title of most expensive Christmas TV home is Edina Monsoon from Absolutely Fabulous. Foxtons estimates that her Holland Park terraced house, located in the W11 postcode, would command an equally impressive £14,568 per sq m in today’s market. However, the property does boast the second largest size at 215.9 sq m.

Bridget Jones Diary – £13,541 per sq m

Coming in marginally cheaper is the 1 bedroom flat of Bridget Jones, found in Bedale Street near the iconic Borough Market. The flat in the SE1 postcode is estimated to command £13,541 in today’s market according to Foxtons.

About A Boy – £13,402 per sq m

Will Freeman’s About A Boy bachelor pad in London’s EC1 postcode also ranks within the top five most expensive Christmas TV homes, valued at £13,402 per sq m.

Elf – £11,409 per sq m

The New York penthouse, owned by the family of Buddy in Elf, is the most expensive Christmas TV house outside of London at an estimated £11,409 per sq m. At an estimated 132.4 square metres, it’s also fourth largest.

Home Alone one of the least valuable

While Kevin Mcallister may boast the largest Christmas TV home at 394.2 square metres, his palatial home in the Chicago suburbs actually commands one of the most affordable price tags per sq m, coming in at £4,511 per sq m.

Just one other property is more affordable and that’s Stacy’s two bed terrace home from Gavin and Stacey, commanding just £2,939 per sq m.

4 Privet Drive, home of Harry Potter and the Dursley’s, is estimated to command £5,997 per sq m in today’s market.

A flat in Nelson Mandela House, Peckham, would set Del Boy back £6,523 per sq m.

Finally, the country cottage depicted in the Holiday would command £8,825 per sq m today.

Foxtons CEO, Guy Gittins, said, “Despite the challenges faced by the London property market in 2023, it remains one of the most sought after places to buy a property on the global stage and the sq m price reflects this.

So, it’s no surprise that when it comes to current market values, the capital still tops the table and what better way to demonstrate this at this time of year than by valuing some of the most iconic homes from our favourite Christmas TV shows and films.”
