It can be of little surprise to Yorkshire folk that Harrogate has topped the list of the county’s most desirable properties.
For the third year in a row, Harrogate’s Rutland Drive has topped the list of the most desirable properties in the county with homes selling for an average price tag of £1,191,000
Other exclusive addresses include Duchy Road, also in Harrogate, with an average price of £990,000, Bracken Park, where homes are worth £973,000 and Ling Lane, where properties are priced at around £859,000 - both in Leeds - and Harewood Road in Wetherby, where the average cost is £801,000. Research from Lloyds Bank has shown that away from the Golden Triangle the most expensive addresses are Curly Hill in Ilkley, where prices average £949,000 and Kemp Road in North Ferriby, in Hull, where the average is £824,000.
Andrew Mason, mortgages director at Lloyds Bank, said: “Outside London, the areas with the most expensive streets are generally located away from central areas, where buyers are typically attracted by larger properties and more green space. These areas can be as diverse as Surrey, Cheshire, the ‘golden triangle’ in Yorkshire and Poole on the south coast.”
Victoria Road in Kensington, London, has been named as the most expensive street in the country, with the average property there costing more than £8m, according to the research from Lloyds Bank which covers England and Wales.
Such is the pull of living in Kensington and Chelsea, that it is home to 12 of the 20 most expensive streets in the country.
The only area in the top 50 most expensive streets outside London and the South East is Poole in Dorset.
In the North researchers found a hub of England’s most pricey properties concentrated just south of Manchester - in Castle Hill, Macclesfield, the average home is valued at £1.6m.
