Few people can afford these £1m-plus dream homes.

But for those well-heeled folk who can, there are some serious savings to be made.

YorkshireLive has found a selection of the county’s most expensive properties on sale with significant price reductions.

We’ve found a mansion – with a helipad, no less – on the market with almost a third of the price knocked off. And we’ve discovered another stunning country retreat where its owners have shaved £700,000 from the previous price.

And even if you haven’t got anything like the money to afford these properties you can still have a virtual nosy around for nothing below.
