Most Expensive Streets in Yorkshire and the Humber Lie in the Golden Triangle


LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jan. 6, 2014) - The most expensive streets in Yorkshire and the Humber are mainly in the area that makes up the so-called "Golden Triangle" between Harrogate, north Leeds and Wetherby, according to latest figures from Lloyds Bank. The region's most expensive street is Rutland Drive with an average price of GBP 1,152,000(1), followed by Bracken Park (GBP 956,000) and Wigton Lane (GBP 942,000) - both of which are in north Leeds.

Nitesh Patel, housing economist at Lloyds Bank, comments:

"Unsurprisingly, the most expensive residential streets in England and Wales are in London, but Rutland Drive takes the title in Yorkshire and the Humber. The biggest concentration of Yorkshire's expensive properties is in the "Golden Triangle" between Harrogate, north Leeds and Wetherby. The survey shows that the most expensive streets continue to be tightly clustered in relatively small areas."
