Phillimore Gardens in London’s Kensington has been revealed the most expensive street in London.
Homes in Phillimore Gardens have an average house price of £23.8million, thus becoming the affluent area of Kensington and is lined with multi-million pound mansions.
The street runs roughly north to south from Duchess of Bedford’s Walk to Kensington High Street and is close to Holland Park.
It is tree-lined and boasts a popular café – called Café Phillies – towards one end of the street, which is a favourite of Piers Morgan who lives in the neighbourhood.
Grosvenor Square in affluent Mayfair takes second spot with an average price tag of £23.5million – it is less than three miles away from Phillimore Gardens.
Making up the top three is London’s picturesque Illchester Place, where properties now cost an average £17.7million.
London dominates the list of the most expensive streets from Halifax, with just one road outside of the capital making it into the top 20.
Titlarks Hill in Ascot is ranked in position 12 and homes on the street have an average price tag of £12.3million.
Outside the capital, wealthier buyers looking for an exclusive postcode in the North East or the East Midlands would need around £1.5million – making these the lowest-priced ‘most expensive’ regions in the country.
Kim Kinnaird, of Halifax said: ‘For almost all of us, these homes and their eye-watering price tags are the stuff fantasy house hunts are made of.’
