Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Goolis­tan Cooper goolis­tan.cooper@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

A LIST of the most ex­pen­sive res­i­den­tial roads and neigh­bour­hoods in Bri­tain has been pub­lished and is once again dom­i­nated by Kensington and Chelsea and West­min­ster.

The find­ings by prop­erty web­site Zoopla lists Kensington Palace Gar­dens as the coun­try’s most ex­pen­sive road, where an av­er­age prop­erty would cost you a wal­let­bust­ing £38,266,143.

If you were able to live there you could count among your neigh­bours For­mula One heiress Ta­mara Ec­cle­stone and In­dian steel mag­nate Lak­shmi Mit­tall.

In fact, the area is so ex­clu­sive, Zoopla told the Gazette that photography in the area is not per­mit­ted.

Mean­while, the most ex­pen­sive neigh­bour­hood is SW7, which cov­ers Knights­bridge, where the av­er­age prop­erty costs a much more rea­son­able £2,715,273.

The area is just ahead of Kensington W8 (av­er­age prop­erty £2,706,626) and Chelsea SW3 (av­er­age prop­erty £2,530,643).

As well as Kensington, the most ex­pen­sive streets sees Top 10 en­tries from Chelsea (The Boltons, Man­resa Road), Hol­land Park (Ilch­ester Place), South Kensington (Cottes­more Gar­dens), and some in nearby West­min­ster (Grosvenor Cres­cent and Chester Square).

Lawrence Hall, a spokesman for Zoopla, said: “While Kensington Palace Gar­dens con­tin­ues to hold the top spot in the Rich List, it’s in­ter­est­ing to see some prop­erty val­ues in the most ex­pen­sive neigh­bour­hoods de­creas­ing over the past 12 months.

“While Lon­don will al­ways at­tract buy­ers for tro­phy homes from across the globe, those look­ing for mil­lion pound-plus homes should also con­sider ar­eas out­side the cap­i­tal that make the list such as Guildford, Sevenoaks or Esher, where they will get more bang for their buck.”
