While London streets continue to dominate the Top 10, mainly located in the prime residential areas of Kensington, Chelsea and the City of Westminster, the South East proves it’s got its fair share of pricey properties too.
Taking the 11th and 12th spots, South Ridge (£7,125,000) and East Road (£6,862,000), are both in Weybridge, just outside the M25.
Esther Dijkstra, mortgage director at Lloyds Bank, says: “London’s dominance of the top ten most expensive streets in the UK continues, with property prices on some of the most famous roads in the capital averaging £19m. Homes in the South East’s most expensive streets will set you back around £5.5m, and you’ll benefit from more rural locations all within commuting distance of the capital.
“However, much like house prices overall, homes in London have not experienced the same meteoric rise as other regions this year. Buyers with deeper pockets may be starting to look beyond the capital for their next grand home.”
The average price of a home on one of the 10 most expensive streets in both the North and West Midlands increased 11 per cent in a year, making them the two best performing regions. In the North West they have increased by five per cent on average, followed by the East Midlands at four per cent.
London, in comparison, experienced just a one per cent increase.
At the other end of the scale, in the South West the prices of homes on these streets have tumbled 15 per cent, while in East Anglia the average price has dropped five per cent.
