Living outside London is definitely cheaper. Apparently, the further away, the smaller house prices are. Here’s the math:

60 minutes to the city = minus £480,000 off the property price

40 minutes to the city = minus $372,255 off the property price

20 minutes to the city = minus £299,328 off the property price
