What it cost you to live on the most expensive UK streets

You need to pay almost £29 million to live on the UK’s most expensive street and all the top ten are located in London.

The top ten most expensive streets in the UK are located in London, says Halifax and you would pay £28.9 million to buy a property on Tite Street in the borough of Chelsea and Kensington.

Tlte Street is located near the River Thames the exclusive King’s Road, replacing last year's winner Avenue Road in St John’s Wood.

Only the wealthiest homeowners can afford to purchase properties on the most expensive streets and are unaffordable to the vast majority of first time buyers and home movers.

House prices in the top ten like the rest of London have not seen significant rise in values, increasing only 1% on average compared to other regions increasing up to 11% over the year.

For the equity release buyer in London intending to leave equity for beneficiaries, they can reduce inheritance tax by accessing wealth using a lifetime mortgage.

Rather than move, wealthy remortgage buyers could secure a mortgage advance to raise capital which they can use to add an extension or make other home improvements.

Regions with meteoric rise in prices

In contrast to the top ten most expensive streets, in the regions house prices have experienced a meteoric rise up 11% in the North and the West Midlands.

Prices are rising as home movers have changed their priorities moving away from cities to the regions for more indoor and outdoor space, pushing up house prices.

The most expensive street in the North is Old Hall Road in Windermere at £2.5 million with seven of the most expensive streets based in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

For West Midlands the top spot goes to Birmingham’s Carpenter Road with average house prices of £3.0 million followed by Old Warwick Road in Solihull costing £2.1 million.

In the North West house prices are up 5% with Barrow Lane in Altrincham costing £3.7 million and other most expensive streets are located in Macclesfield, Altrincham, Alderley Edge and Knutsford.

For the East Midlands house prices are higher by 4% with Benscliffe Road in Leicester at the top with an average property value of £3.2 million.

Properties in the South East occupy top places from eleven to twenty with South Ridge costing £7.1 million followed by East Road with values of £6.8 million, both in Weybridge.
