A new study of house prices in the UK’s super prime market has revealed the most expensive addresses of the 2010s.
According to the figures from online data source Mouseprice, the decade’s most expensive road was the Boltons, SW10. The Chelsea address recorded an average sold price of £36.6million between 2011 and 2020.
A popular street with celebrities, its residents have included Hollywood star Douglas Fairbanks Jr and Madonna, who owned a house on the street between 1999 and 2006. Novelist and politician Jeffrey Archer lived in the street in the 1970s and set two of his thrillers there.
According to Mouseprice, 30 streets saw average prices of more than £10million during the period, with the 10 most expensive streets attracting an average price of £17million.
Also in the top 10 were Courtenay Avenue, Highgate (with an average price of £15.1million) and Whitestone Lane in n Hampstead (£14.4million).
Outside London, Meadow Road in Virginia Water, Surrey, tops the list at £15.6 million. The road has been home to Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, Bruce Forsyth and Cliff Richard.
Aside from the super prime market, average house prices across London sectors almost doubled during the decade to £514,000.
Despite reports of buyers exiting the capital for more room and bigger gardens – and travel bans restricting overseas investment – sales of £10million+ London homes increased during 2020. Some £1.13billion was spent in the super-prime market between January and August with high demand for properties with outdoor space in areas such as Belgravia.
