How much it costs to buy a house on the most expensive streets in England and Wa

Want to live on Avenue Road in St John’s Wood, London?

You’ll need to fork out £30.5million, if not more.

This has nabbed the title of the most expensive street in England and Wales, as revealed by Lloyds.

Other pricey places to buy a property around Britain are also in London – streets in the capital city make up all of the top ten.

The top spot, as we mentioned, goes to Avenue Road in north west London. This is a road where the wealthy can buy multi-million pound mansions, with little traffic congestion and a location leading into Regent’s Park.

Avenue Road has overtaken last year’s winner of the most expensive street title, Ilchester Place in London’s Holland Park, where homes go for an average of £17million.

This year’s second place goes to Tite Street in Chelsea, where an average house price is £28.9million, then South Audley Street in Mayfair, where it’s £22.85million.

You’ll notice a common theme in the top ten, with the areas of Kensington and Chelsea and the City of Westminster dominating the list.

But if you go beyond the top ten, you’ll start to spy some streets in the South East, where the most expensive houses can set you back an average of £5.6million.

Cristchurch Road in Bournemouth, for example, has landed number 16 on the list. Here, properties cost an average of £6.2million.

Andrew Mason, of Lloyds Bank, said: ‘It comes as no surprise that London continues to rule the roost of the country’s prime property market, however we are seeing a marked growth in prices in the south east and across other UK regions.

‘The average house price, in the most expensive streets in the South East has risen by over a staggering £1million in the past year.

‘Elsewhere your typical home on Wales’s most expensive street this year is just shy of £2million, compared to last year’s top average of £900,000.

‘Meanwhile the new priciest street in the North is located in Windermere, where your average home will also cost you north of £2million, up from last year’s mean price of just over £1.5million.’
