Do You Live in One of the UK's Ten Most Expensive Streets?

By Gary Cutlack on at

No offence, but probably not, eh? According to house buying/selling portal Zoopla, the ten most expensive streets to buy houses on are all in London, as you might expect, with the tip of the iceberg being in Kensington Palace Gardens -- where the average house price is an insane £38.26m.

There's hope for people who want to live a bit further out and still only have one or two million pounds to spend on a house, though, with Guildford being a much more affordable enclave. The Surrey town has a staggering 184 streets where the average price of a home is over £1m, closely followed by glamorous commuter enclave Reading, which has 162 £1m+ average price streets.

But there's some bad news for owners within London's super rich streets -- the average prices are dropping, probably because the entire city's gradually turning into posh flats and every rich kid has got a NW EU crash pad already. Property prices in posh post codes W8, W11 and W1 have fallen by between 3.5 per cent and 5.2 per cent over the last 12 months, as even the uber wealthy start to suffer a few money problems or think about trying Berlin instead.
