Live like a rock star (or a banking or oil tycoon) in Britain’s most expensive street

With its pristine stucco-fronted facade and Harrods a mere stones throw away, a home in London's Egerton Crescent will set you back an eye-watering £8m

If your multi-million pound Christmas bonus is burning a hole in your pocket, then snapping up a property in London’s Egerton Crecent could be right up your… ahem, street.

You’ll count super-rich banking and oil magnets among your neighbours and who needs Tesco Express when you have Harrods on your doorstep? But a postcode like this doesn’t come cheap.

The exclusive terrace, in the highly-fashionable Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, has just been named as the most expensive street in Britain and, according to a report by Lloyds TSB, the average price of a house here will set you back an eye-watering £8,136,000.

This rather princely sum will likely get you a spacious four-bedroom period family home although you may struggle to find a parking spot for the family-sized car (there are no garages) and gardens are on the – well, small side.

According to the report, 20 of the country’s most expensive streets are all situated in London, with Parkside in Wimbledon and Campden Hill Road in Kensington vying closely for second spot.

And if you want to try your luck outside of the big smoke, then Woodlands Road West in Virginia Water, Surrey, is the next most expensive location with a typical home costing £3,201,000.
