BRIGHTON is one of the most expensive places to live, with people coming from all over to move closer to the sea.

The Argus has delved into data held by the Land Registry to compile a list of the 5 most expensive houses ever sold in the city.

When we say ever, we mean since Land Registry data began being charted digitally in 1999.

Therefore, there is a chance that sales pre-dating this time may have topped the list.

From helipads to pools and cinemas, these are the most expensive homes ever sold in Brighton:
