Euromillions jackpot winners go shopping for overseas property

Who could blame Euromillions lottery winners Dave and Angie Dawes when they say they plan to spend some of their winnings on at least one property overseas.

Chelsea-mad football fan Dave wants to buy a place in Kensington so he can use his newly purchased season ticket to be around to support his team for all of their home games. And as he's hoping Chelsea and England midfielder Frank Lampard will pop round for a cup of tea, surely his London pied à terre needs to be a little more than just that?

£75 million house in West Kensington in need of £10 milion refit

So how about this £75 million mansion located a five minute limo ride from Stamford Bridge, although it is in need of a £10 million refit, but that's now small change to the Daweses!

Looking further afield, what could they buy with their £101 million jackpot?

Whilst the rest of the property market in Spain is still suffering, as reported on A Place in the Sun yesterday, high-net worth individuals are flocking in their droves to the country with the luxury resort of Marbella and more recently the trendy areas of Barcelona and the nearby Costa Brava seeing an increase in demand for high-end luxury villas. The perennially popular Balearic isle of Ibiza continues to draw the rich and famous with this 10 bedroom cliff-top palatial home going for €15 million.

The view form your own property on Victoria Peak in Hong Kong could set you back a cool  US$36 million

Often cited as the world's most expensive property market, an apartment on Victoria Peak in Hong Kong could set the Dawes back US$36 million, or maybe a New York penthouse overlooking Central Park which average around $25million, where real estate sales have overtaken London for the first time.

We wish the Dawes the best of luck with their property search and look forward to finding out if they go home or away?!
