While the prime London boroughs of Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea continue to top the tables, the South East’s Charlbury Road in Oxford becomes the most expensive street outside London.
“The average house prices in the top 10 priciest streets in the South East have risen by around £300,000 in the past year, with the 10 prestigious addresses in the area commanding an average house price in excess of £4.4 million.”
