HAVE you ever wondered how the most expensive roads in Herefordshire match up to the rest of England and Wales?

With Herefordshire’s countryside, quaint towns, and proximity to Wales putting it on the staycation map, the county's property prices are on the rise.

According to Rightmove, the overall average in Herefordshire is £317,248.

This was similar to nearby Worcestershire (£307,573), but more expensive than Shropshire (£268,980) and the West Midlands (£245,044).

The priciest area within Herefordshire was Stretford (£675,000) and the least expensive was Credenhill (£207,722).

However, this seems low when compared to the £28.9 million average cost to live in the most expensive street in England and Wales, analysis has found.

And research found Benar Headland in Pwllheli - Wales’s most expensive street – has an average house price of £2,152,000.

During the last year, sold prices in Herefordshire were 15 per cent up on the previous year and 20 per cent up on 2018 when the average house price was £264,117.

The annual property rich list, revealing the most expensive streets across the UK, has revealed which Herefordshire streets are among the priciest.

The county's top five, published by Zoopla, includes two roads in Hereford and one in Ledbury, with the rest made up of quiet hamlets and villages.

Ranked top as the most expensive area in Herefordshire, Sollers Hope, between Hereford and Ross-on-Wye, has an average house price of £742,309.

The village is just a stone's throw from the River Wye and is near to the picturesque market towns of Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye, as well as just 10 miles from Hereford city centre.

However, this does not compare to the most expensive area in England and Wales which unsurprisingly is in London.

In Tite Street, in Chelsea, London a house will sell for an average of £28,902,000.

Coming in at number two is the small area of Leddington, just outside Ledbury.

The hamlet has an average house price of £741,338, according to the Zoopla research.

The second most expensive area in England and Wales was - again unsurprisingly - in London.

In Phillimore Gardens, average house prices on the prestigious street near Holland Park are nearly £25.2 million.

At three is Hope Mansell, near Ross-on-Wye. House prices in the hamlet just south of the town average £698,946, and it's just a few minutes from the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

However, this compared to South Audley Street, in Mayfair, London, seems a little more manageable as houses there sells at an average of £22,850,000.
