Llandudno street ‘richest in north Wales’

Llandudno is home to the most expensive street in north Wales, according to a new survey by Zoopla.

The property website has published its Property Rich List 2020, revealing the most expensive streets to live in all over the UK - and the popular seaside resort stood out in north Wales.

Llys Helig Drive came top with an average house price of £1,273,615. This made it one of just two streets in North Wales with an average property value of over £1 million. The other was Pen Benar Headland in Abersoch.

However, another Llandudno Street was just below the million mark in third place, with a typical residence on Marine Drive costing £994,090. Gannock Road West in Deganwy came fourth at £950,416, while Gannock Park, also in Deganwy, was ninth on the list. The popularity of Llys Helig Drive owes much to its location on the Great Orme Peninsula, Zoopla spokesman Tom Parker told the North Wales Post.

Noting the street has been nicknamed “Millionaire’s Row” by locals, he remarked: “With North Wales well renowned for its beautiful scenery, it makes sense that streets in coastal and rural locations are the most expensive.”

While the costliest streets to buy a house on in north Wales will be well beyond the reach of most people’s budgets, the region remains one of the more affordable to live in; this is true even compared with the rest of Wales, which features another 25 streets with average prices over £1 million.

The Welsh figure is dwarfed by other parts of Great Britain, with the second lowest regional tally of ‘millionaire’s rows’ being 57 in the north east of England. By contrast, there are 4,707 such streets in the south east of England and 4,523 in London.

Surrey has eight of the ten most expensive streets in Britain, but while homes in Leatherhead or Reigate may be more valuable than Llandudno, those who live in them will have to travel some distance from the landlocked county to enjoy views over the sea.
