London, Dec. 28 : The most expensive streets in England and Wales have been revealed, where homes typically cost a staggering 8.1 million pounds.
Situated just a stone's throw from London's Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) and Harrods, Egerton Crescent in south-west London is one of six streets located in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea which are all in the top 10 list compiled by Lloyds TSB.
According to the Mirror, house prices in central London have continued to shoot upwards over the past year amid strong interest from wealthy overseas buyers looking for a safe haven amid the uncertainty of the eurozone.
Merton in south-west London also claimed two places in the top 10 list. Parkside, skirting Wimbledon Common, came in second place with an average property price of 5.2 million pounds.
Campden Hill Square in the heart of London's Holland Park, which was last year's most expensive street, was pushed into third place this year, with an average price of 4.9 million pounds, the report added.
According to the report, away from London, the most expensive streets include Woodlands Road West in Virginia Water, Surrey, where homes are worth 3.2 million dollars on average and Leys Road in Leatherhead, also in Surrey, where homes have a 3 million dollars price tag.
Outside southern England, the most expensive street is just south of Manchester, in Park Lane, Altrincham, with an average house price of 2.1 million dollars, the report said.
