The most expensive streets in Leeds have been exposed by study following a huge boom in Yorkshire property prices.
There are now 55 streets across Yorkshire and the Humber where the average house is valued at £ 1million or more – an increase of 16 from the previous year, when there were 39 in total .
Zoopla’s study also showed the five most expensive streets in the region, all located in West Yorkshire.
Three of these are in Leeds, the most expensive of which is Manor House Lane, where an average house will set you back £ 1,619,000.
Just behind is Roundhay Park Lane in Leeds, where houses average a very respectable £ 1,618,000 and Ling Lane, where the average property is only £ 1,544,000.
Yorkshire’s most expensive street was revealed as Linton Lane in Wetherby, where the average house costs £ 1,791,000.
The top five is completed by Hebers Ghyll Drive in Ilkley, where the average property is relatively close to £ 1,479,000.
Across Britain, there has been a 1,782 increase in the number of streets that had an average house price of £ 1million or more in September 2021 compared to a year ago, Zoopla said.
There are now 11,673, up from 9,891 million streets in September 2020.
South East England accounts for about half of the increase, with 942 million more streets created there in the past year, compared to 262 in London.
The weakening of the stamp duty holidays in the summer has caused a rush of buyers who are snapping up homes. The holidays ended completely from October 1st.
Many people are also looking for larger properties with more space as they make lifestyle changes in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Grainne Gilmore, Head of Research at Zoopla, said: “London leads the way when it comes to major UK markets, but the wider South East suburban area is also home to some of the more interesting addresses, reflecting the size and type of housing stock in these regions.
For the 13th year in a row, Kensington Palace Gardens (postcode W8) in London has been identified as Britain’s most expensive street, with homes averaging around £ 29.9million.

The United Kingdom is in an energy crisis following the price of gas which has exploded in recent weeks.
Many energy suppliers are bankrupt, prompting warnings of food shortages in UK supermarkets.
Households are warned that anyone who enters cheap fixed energy deals could face huge price increases, even on the cheapest tariffs. To avoid a possible rise in energy bill prices, customers can:
- Stick to the price cap for six months, as prices could potentially drop if the energy market stabilizes.
- Upgrade to the cheapest fixed offer of one or two years, but you’ll have to act quickly – see here for switching.
Here are some of the comparison sites suggested by Ofgem:
– West Midlands, 205
– Scotland, 136
– East Midlands, 65
– Yorkshire and the Humber, 55
– North East England, 41
– Wales, 9
