Zoopla has revealed over 660,000 Brits are in possession of the title “millionaire” thanks to the value of their property
The sector on the whole has remained strong as Zoopla has highlighted that prices of homes have rocketed. In fact, 40,885 property millionaires have been created in 2016 so far, pushing the total number up to 660,924 Brits with six zeroes attached to their abodes.
In terms of the wealthiest street in the country, that prestigious and eye-watering honour goes to Kensington Palace Gardens in West London, where the average home is priced at £38,266,143. According to Zoopla, the guarded street is home to foreign royalty and tycoons, with even the richest British bankers priced out of the market.
Looking beyond the extravagance of London, Guilford in Surrey is the number one town to head to for expensive properties. With some 184 streets with homes in excess of £1m, the £1m plus price tag accounts for 16.2 per cent of the town’s streets and the average property value is £559,413.
Neighbouring Surrey town Sevenoaks is the second richest town in the country, followed by Reading and Oxford, with 4,407, 4,383 and 4,374 property millionaires respectively.
