A STREET in Barnt Green has made the top ten most expensive streets in the West Midlands.

Mearse Lane came fifth in a list of the top ten streets in the West Midlands based on average house prices, compiled by the bank Halifax.

The average house price between 2016 and 2021 on the street was £1,825,000, according to the banking giant.

Topping the list for the West Midlands was Carpenter Road in Birmingham where the average house costs £3,088,000, followed by Old Warwick Road in Solihull where the the average price is £2,113,000.

Tite Street in the London Borough of Chelsea and Kensington was found to be the most expensive in the country, where the average house price comes in at an eye-watering £28.9million.

London streets continue to dominate the top ten mainly located in the residential areas of Kensington, Chelsea and the City of Westminster.

Esther Dijkstra, mortgage director Lloyds Bank, said: “London’s dominance of the top ten most expensive streets in the UK continues, with property prices on some of the most famous roads in the capital averaging £19 million. Homes in the South East’s most expensive streets will set you back around £5.5 million, and you’ll benefit from more rural locations all within commuting distance of the capital.

“However, much like house prices overall, homes in London have not experienced the same meteoric rise as other regions this year. Buyers with deeper pockets may be starting to look beyond the capital for their next grand home.”
