Central London unsurprisingly dominates the newly released list of most expensive streets in Britain, with only one road outside the capital making the top 20.
Phillimore Gardens has been named the most expensive street in the UK, where the average house will cost you in the region of £23.8m.
The tree-lined street of grand Victorian houses in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has topped mortgage lender Halifax’s list of the priciest roads in the country.
Second on the list is Grosvenor Square, located less than three miles away in Mayfair, where the average home is said to be worth £23.5m.
Third place goes to Ilchester Place, a five minute walk away across Holland Park from Phillimore Gardens, where the average house is worth £17.7m.
Kim Kinnaird, mortgages director at Halifax, said: “For almost all of us, these homes and their eye-watering price tags are the stuff fantasy house hunts are made of.
“Unsurprisingly, London roads occupy the top 10 streets in the UK, and buying a home on London’s Phillimore Gardens could set you back a staggering £24m on average.
“That said, the price of a prestigious address can differ hugely across the UK. Living on the most expensive street in the north-east or east Midlands will cost something closer to £1.5m.”
Just one road outside the capital makes it into the top 20. Titlarks Hill, a private road in Sunningdale, Berkshire, took 12th place with an average price of £12.3m.
Titlarks Hill is home to Michael Bruce, ex-Purplebricks and Boomin, who earlier this year listed his property for sale at an asking price of £19.5m.
There is no record of the property having been sold yet on the the Land Registry, which suggests Bruce probably still owns the house.
3.9 million shares would have bagged Michael’s pad way back then
now you’d need 217 million shares or thereabouts today -can’t be right ? Can it ?
oh well-sell the house -buy the company -spin it as per Bruce special -re list the firm -buy a bigger house- simples
