IF YOU won the lottery, would you choose to buy a nice-sized home in Southampton, or up sticks and buy a flat in London?

The cost of a property in the capital is on the pricier end of the scale, so we all know that you are likely to get less for your money.

According to Rightmove, properties in Southampton had an overall average price of £265,531 over the last year.

This amount can usually get you a three bedroom property in the city, but you will need to spend a bit more cash just for a flat in London.

Here are three properties in Southampton you could buy for the price of this London flat.

Fawnbrake Avenue, London

At first glance, this may seem a reasonable price for London, but this flat just outside of Brixton is only one bedroom. 

Positioned on the top floor of an "elegant" semi-detached Edwardian house, the property offers commanding views across rooftops towards the city.

It is close to numerous train stations and great eateries, but is the price really worth it when you can get more for your money in Southampton? 

Here's what you could get in Southampton for the same price.
