An extremely affluent European family have celebrated Boris Johnson's election victory by buying a £65 million house in a “prime location” in central London.

The family bought the property from luxury estate agency Beauchamp Estates in an undisclosed part of the capital as a direct result of the Conservatives historic win on Thursday.

According to the Guardian, the wealthy buyer set up the deal last week but waited to sign the documents until seeing the outcome of the election.

Gary Hersham, the founder of Beauchamp Estates, said the house was "one of the most expensive properties ever sold in the UK” but declined to provide any further details such as the number of bedrooms.

Following the Conservatives’ 80-seat majority, Hersham says his agency has been inundated with calls from mega-rich overseas property hunters who had been stalling on buying UK properties in case Jeremy Corbyn became Prime Minister.

Corbyn vowed to take on the “rich and powerful” as he set out his plan to transform Britain in the run-up to the general election, leaving many of the UK’s millionaires fear their prosperity would be damaged under a Labour-led government more than Brexit.

The party said that the Conservative Party had favoured corporations and the super-rich in its policies.

Speaking at the launch of the party manifesto in Birmingham, Mr Corbyn said that it would bring to an end a system “rigged” in favour of “the billionaires and the super rich”.

Corbyn singled out billionaires like Mike Ashley, the owner of Sports Direct, the hedge fund manager Crispin Odey and Rupert Murdoch saying he would "go after" them in order to even-out the country's wealth.
