With their stunning array of classical architecture set alongside modern developments, the nation’s most expensive residential streets are centred around the many crescents and squares in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, according to latest research from Lloyds TSB.
Close to fashionable shops and top end restaurants, Egerton Crescent is the most expensive residential street in England & Wales with an average property value of over £8 million.
Not all of the most expensive streets are in central London, though. Parkside in Merton, South West London, is the nation’s second most valuable address with an average house price of £5,161,000. Home Park Road, also in Merton, is the sixth most expensive street with an average property price of £4,685,000.

A place near the sea has obvious attractions for many wealthy buyers and several exclusive addresses are dotted along the south coast. These streets include Brudenell Avenue in Canford Cliffs (£1,975,000), Mudeford in Christchurch (£1,665,000) Panorama Road (£1,641,000) and Chaddesley Glen both in Sandbanks (£1,599,000).
