House prices: The 15 most expensive areas to buy a home in the UK outside London

House prices: Expert discusses ‘interesting’ pricing differences

Property website Zoopla has revealed the most expensive towns to buy in outside of – so if you’ve got a few million to spare, you might want to consider in one of the following much-desired areas.

The housing market has gone from strength to strength despite years of economic difficulty for the UK – and homebuyers are largely undeterred from securing their dream home, particularly in the most desirable areas of the UK

Director of Henry Dannell, Geoff Garrett, told “Despite a string of interest rate increases and the inevitable impact this has had on monthly mortgage costs, the nation’s homebuyers are seemingly undeterred and continue to flood the market at mass.

“However, the general consensus is that this squeeze on mortgage affordability coupled with the increase in living costs will start to cool the current rate of house price growth as the year goes on.

“While this may not be substantial enough to reverse the upward house price trends being seen at present, it’s almost certainly going to slow what have been some meteoric rises in recent months.”

1. Virginia Water, Surrey

A charming commuter town for the capital remains the highest value place to live, according to Zoopla.

Your average home will set you back £1.6 million, but some streets could see you paying as much as £6.7 million.

2. Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire

Set in the Chiltern Hills, the picturesque town of Beaconsfield has an appealing blend of Tudor and Georgian homes.

But it comes at a price – the average home in Beaconsfield will set you back just short of £1.2 million.
