Where are the most expensive streets in England and Wales?
It won’t come as a great shock to discover that according to Lloyds Bank research, the most expensive residential streets in England and Wales are in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, with Egerton Crescent – home to maney large Grade II listed Georgian properties – the costliest address for the second year running (average property price, £7,369,000).
Six of the ten most expensive streets are in the same borough including Cadogan Square (£5,746,000), Prince Consort Road (£5,499,000), Drayton Gardens (£5,234,000) and Eaton Square (£5,042,000). Outside central London, the capital’s costliest addresses are The Bishops Avenue in Hampstead (£6,203,000) and Parkside in Merton (£5,212,000).
Outside London, most of the dearest streets away from the capital are mainly in the Home Counties, especially Surrey. Properties on Spicers Field in Oxshott in Surrey have an average price of £3,500,000, the highest outside London followed by Leys Road also in Oxshott (£3,436,000), Icklingham Road (£3,264,000) and Harebell Hill (£3,080,000), both in the Surrey village of Cobham.
