Based on transactions between 2004 & 2008, The Vale in Kensington and Chelsea is the most expensive residential street in England and Wales. To live there, you need to be prepared for house prices on average to be around £4,677,500.

If that is a little steep, you could try Ingram Avenue (London borough of Barnet) for an average of £4,465,000 or maybe Cottesmore Garden (Kensington & Chelsea) for an average £4,288,125 per house.

In fact, twenty-five of the fifty most expensive streets in Britain are in Kensington & Chelsea.

Martin Ellis, chief economist at Halifax, commented:"Chelsea and Kensington have some of the most expensive streets in England and Wales. The Royal Borough has been a highly fashionable area to live in since the Swinging Sixties. In recent years, its prime location in Central London has attracted affluent celebrities and ultra wealthy foreign businessmen helping to drive up house prices."

But it's not all about London. Panorama Road in Poole, with an average house price of £4,158,333 is the most expensive street outside the capital. Outside southern England, Congleton Road in Alderly Edge, Cheshire, is home to the most expensive houses (on average £1,684,166), followed by Harrogate (at £1,173,373) as the most expensive street in Yorkshire and the Humber.
