Kensington Palace Gardens has been crowned Britain’s most expensive street for the 13th year running.
With an average property price of just under £29.9m, the street is well known for its embassies and billionaire residents.
It also counts Kensington Palace, home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, among its neighbours.
In fact, all of the top 10 most expensive streets in the country are in London.
And all of the 10 most expensive streets outside of London are within commuting distance of the capital too.
There are now a whopping 11,673 streets in Britain where the average home is valued at £1m or more, our Rist List for 2021 shows.
Gráinne Gilmore, head of research at Zoopla, explained: “This data illustrates how the type and size of properties coupled with some of the most desirable locations around the country create prime areas, resulting in some of the most valuable residential streets in the country.”
