Ascot ranks eighth in a league table of British towns with the most million pound homes for sale.
The survey by a property firm reveals that 32 per cent of homes on the market in Ascot cost more than £1 million.
First place goes to Beaconsfield in Bucks where nearly half of all homes for sale are valued at over the million mark.
Ascot is the only Berkshire entry in the top 10 which includes Virginia Water in Surrey in second place and Much Hadham in Hertfordshire in third.
Nigel Lewis, property analyst at PrimeLocation.com, said: “Despite the recession the capital’s commuter towns continue to be hotspots for million pound homes and the surprise is just how high the proportions are within many of them.”
