Those who live there, many of whom are billionaires, count Kensington Palace, home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, among their neighbors as well as embassies.
And it is not so surprising when you consider that the average value of a house this month (October 2021) is £ 32,445,602.
By comparison, the average price of a property in the capital as a whole is currently £ 661,403, while for the rest of the country it is just over £ 250,000.
In fact, all of the top 10 most expensive streets in the country are in London. And all the 10 richest roads outside the capital are within walking distance of the city.
Courtenay Avenue, on the edge of Hampstead Heath in London’s Highgate, took second place for the third year in a row, with homes on the road putting you back £ 19.4 million.
It was followed by Grosvenor Crescent in Belgravia, where homes have an average price of £ 17.2 million.
There are now huge 11,673 streets in the UK where the average home is valued at £ 1 million or more.
