So when someone says there's a £1.7m mansion for sale practically on the grounds of one of the country's most prestigious golf courses, your ears will probably perk up.

Roman bathhouse heaven: Palatial £1.3m mansion with 21 rooms and its own spa facilities

There's a reason why the Greeks were doing it 3,000 years ago, why the Romans practically built an empire on it, and why you can still do it in most 21st century leisure centres.

No-expenses-spared, 27-room Lancashire super-manor on the market for £2.4m

The phrase 'no expense spared' is a thrilling one. It's scary because there's a panic over who's picking up the bill and it's exciting because you feel like something downright fancy is about to go down. No-expenses-spared weddings can be magical and garish and no-expenses-spared holidays can be unforgettable and forced. But no expenses spared homes are just great. Take this 27-room, three-storey £2.4m wonderland for example...

Sprawling 500-year-old Lancaster farmhouse mansion yours for £1.1m

Out with the old. Make it new. Let go of yesterday. Sayings are unduly harsh on the past. The past is old news, and old news is today's fish and chip paper. But homes buck this trend. Having a past means gravitas. It signifies longevity, and who doesn't want that? Age before beauty, you say? Why not have both? This seven-bedroom Lancaster farmhouse certainly does.

Movie-lovers' dream mansion on the market for Hollywood price tag of £1.4m

Mind-blowing 50-room Lancashire mansion with planning permission for a cricket pitch on the market for £4m

The word 'home' carries with it a suggestion of something compact; something warm and tight-knit and cosy. Something to be owned.

It's not a home, it's a house, and a proper one at that.

One of Lancashire's finest: £1m Georgian manor with quarter-mile driveway

Trudging up the driveway when the weather gets cold and there's treacherous black ice about can be perilous. Patience is required. Slow and steady. That being said, such a measured approach on the quarter-mile driveway of a £1m Georgian manor house on the market may be equally as dangerous: hypothermia might just set in before you reach your front door.

Four-storey Lancashire mansion up for auction: 66-foot waterfall included

Water features are a lovely addition to any home. Who would say no to the therapeutic trickle of water from a tasteful fountain or the soothing presence of koi carp in a pond, after all? But for those unimpressed by a poxy statue spitting water or a load of fish in their garden, a certain home boasting its own waterfall and cave system may just be of interest.
