Stratford boasts most expensive road in West Midlands

A ROAD in Stratford has the most expensive houses in the West Midlands.

The average cost of buying a home on Tiddington Road is nearly £1.4million, according to new research published by Lloyds Bank.

Many of the exclusive houses along the road south of the Avon are five and six bedroomed properties with multiple bathrooms and reception rooms, and extensive gardens. Swimming pools are not uncommon and a couple have tennis courts.

A five bedroom house which sold earlier this year for £1.6million even included two islands in the Avon – onto which the back garden ran down to.

The most pricey street in the East Midlands is Lyndon Road in Rutland, where house prices are slightly more than those on Tiddington Road.

Both are some way behind the most expensive place to buy in the country – Victoria Road in the London borough of Kensington – where the average home buyer needs just over £8million to secure a property.

The Tiddington Road price did not even secure it a place in the top 50 most expensive roads in the country. Unsurprisingly all the highest priced roads were in London and the surrounding south east. Fairmeads in Cobham in Kent was in fiftieth place with an average home costing just over £2.1 million.
