House prices vary wildly depending on where you live – with London and the south east consistently being the most expensive place to purchase a home, with prices in Wales and northern England at the more inexpensive end. But house prices also depend on the street you live in, with some of the dearest streets in Britain selling homes for tens, and sometimes hundreds, of millions of pounds, according to data compiled by Express.co.uk.

Property prices fell by 1.1 percent between September and October this year, but are still a huge 10.2 percent higher than last the same time last year.

Managing Director of Sirius Property Finance, Nicholas Christofi, told Express.co.uk: “Although the end of the stamp duty holiday and a potential increase in interest rates is expected to cause a market slowdown early next year, we’re unlikely to see any notable reduction in buyer demand and therefore house price growth should remain steady, at the very least.

“A potential interest rates increase will cause many buyers to pause for thought before transacting.

“However, we’re already seeing measures to reduce this impact with the Bank of England removing the mortgage rates rise stress tests and a number of mortgage providers already starting to offer some very favourable deals.”

House prices have shot up over the course of the pandemic, and while growth has slowed slightly according to the latest House Price Index, Britain’s most expensive streets are likely to become even more exclusive with continually rising prices expected over 2022.

So where are Britain’s most expensive streets – and do you live on one or near one?
