No penny lane here! South Manchester home to most expensive streets in region

Manchester is home to ‘those who aspire to have it all’, according to a recent study, which reveals the most expensive places to live in the North West are mostly in South Manchester.

The report says addresses in Altrincham, Prestbury and Wilmslow play host to half of the entire North West’s top ten most expensive streets.

Outside southern England, the most expensive street is Park Lane in Altrincham, which boasts an average property price of £2,494,000.

Andy Hulme, Mortgages Director at Lloyds Bank, who commissioned the study, said: “The region’s most expensive streets are generally in areas south of Manchester, such as Altrincham, Prestbury and Wilmslow.

“These are all well known hotspots for those who aspire to have it all, and boast eight of the ten most expensive streets. All of these areas have outstanding properties, excellent schools, good shopping facilities and are on the edge of the countryside but still close enough to the centre of Manchester.”

Park Lane is followed by South Road (£2,025,000), also in Altrincham.

Other exclusive addresses include Withinlee Road (£1,960,000) and Castle Hill (£1,856,000) –both in Prestbury – and Leycester Road in Knutsford (£1,760,000).

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the study also revealed London as taking up 25 of the top 50 most expensive streets in England and Wales. Average house prices on the most expensive street, Grosvenor Crescent in Westminster, will cost buyers a princely £16,918,000.
