Speaking on the data, co-founder Ruban Selvanayagam said: “Although there remains a fairly healthy volume of sales in this price bracket, such a pronounced drop would suggest that buyer appetite for these types of homes is decreasing.

“£1 million+ properties - even for the wealthy - are major commitment and indeed affected by the wider economy.

“With continued inflationary pressures and rising interest rates as a result, it would not be too much of a surprise to see a continued cooling off across the high-end property market in the coming year at least.”
