10 Feb Virginia Water in UK’s Top 20 Most Expensive Streets
The statistics for the UK’s property market in 2017 are in, and the figures are pretty hefty! Barton Wyatt, luxury estate agents in Surrey, have got the low-down on the areas that came out on the pricier end of the budget spectrum, including our very own Virginia Water.
Last year saw Belgravia’s Grosvenor Crescent crowned as the UK’s most expensive street, stealing the top-spot from Eaton Square (also in Belgravia) which was demoted to the bronze position. Grosvenor Crescent stretches from Belgrave Square to Duke of Wellington Place and, rather than the usual homes, this street is made up of lavish flats – which could be an indicator of market preference at the moment.
Surrey and Virginia Water
It’s not a well-kept secret that Surrey is one of the most exclusive areas in the country, and 2017 saw over 1,200 homes selling for upwards of one million pounds; impressive numbers! This is made even more impressive when over 160 of these homes were sold for over two million pounds. One property on Wentworth (sold by Barton Wyatt) sold for the impressive price tag of £14.5 million.
It probably isn’t too much of a shock, therefore, that Surrey was home to seven out of twenty streets where property prices fetched the highest figures in the UK. One such road was the beautiful tree-lined avenue of Gorse Hill Road on the Wentworth Estate in Virginia Water – a highly desirable place to live, proven by its new status amongst the elite of Great Britain’s streets, and where sales of up to £7m were seen in 2017.
