Property website Zoopla has released a list of the most sought-after addresses in the country.

The streets are among the most searched-for by house-hunters because of their affordability, location, attractiveness and proximity to good schools.

Nether Edge Road in Sheffield's Nether Edge neighbourhood and Trafalgar Road in Scarborough were both included in the list, which found that although some searches can be attributed to 'voyeurism' - such as London roads full of millionaires' mansions - many just reflect the local popularity and reputation of a street among buyers who already live in the town or city.

Nether Edge has been an emerging Sheffield postcode over the last few years, as most of the city's expensive housing lies on the other side of trendy Ecclesall Road. Nether Edge has proved more affordable, but still has the community spirit and ambience that buyers are looking for. There's an active neighbours' group, plenty of nature and green space, and a number of independent cafes and eateries at the bottom of Nether Edge Road. There's also a thriving farmers' market.

Trafalgar Road in Scarborough is lined with terraced houses that sell cheaply - ranging from £95,000-125,000. Its position in the search charts is thought to be because of its desirability among buy-to-let investors, who can rent the four-bedroom homes out for as much as £625 per month. It sits between Peasholm Park and North Bay.

Other searched-for Yorkshire streets include Clayton Avenue in Upton, near Pontefract, which has cheap housing; Bricknell Avenue in Hull, which has attractive period terraces and lies between the popular areas of The Avenues and Cottingham; Church Street in Heckmondwike, which is close to highly-regarded Heckmondwike Grammar School; and Leys Close in Carleton, near Skipton, a cul-de-sac consisting mainly of bungalows with sweeping views of the countryside.

Zoopla assert that the results of their analysis reflect the local knowledge of house-hunters, who are usually looking to move within 10 miles of their current property and are aware of the quirks and advantages of certain addresses.
