The village of Aislaby has been named as having the most valuable street in the county of North Yorkshire.

Property website, Zoopla, released figures showing there are 524,306 property millionaires in the UK and 10,958 streets where the average property price tops £1 million.

While most of these, around 43 per cent, are in London, figures show in Yorkshire there are 99 streets with an average house price of over £1million.

The most valuable property street in North Yorkshire is in the small village on the outskirts of Whitby which stands at £1.65 million.

It sees off property prices for the big cities too - with Leeds’ most expensive street, Roundhay Park Lane, being priced up at £1.5million on average in comparison.

The north east of England is one of the areas that has the lowest number of high value streets.

Trevor Jefferson, chair of Aislaby Parish Council said he was surprised the village has topped the list compared to other locations in the county.

He said: “They always call the road from Aislaby to Egton ‘millionaire’s row’ because they are posh houses with views over the Esk Valley and when they come up for sale they are always expensive. Property in the village is expensive, but unfortunately not my house.”
