EVERYBODY knows buying a house is not cheap, and putting down a deposit in Oxford seems even more unachievable – but where exactly are the most expensive places to live?

New data put together by Property Solvers has revealed the 10 streets in the OX postcode with the most eye-watering price tags.

The roads might not be paved with gold, or even be pothole-free, but the properties still sold for way above the average over the five years since 2015.

In top spot was Northmoor Road in North Oxford, where four homes sold for an average price of £3,450,000.

Oxford Mail:

In second place was Charlbury Road with the average house price at £3,188,333 based on three sales.

The streets are followed by Northam Road, Foxcombe Road, Fox Lane and Park Town – which is a stones throw away from University Parks – all averaging at the £2 million mark.

Unsurprisingly on the list (in seventh place) was Woodstock Road – which in March last year boasted one of Oxford's most expensive homes ever – Summertown Villa.

Oxford Mail:

The Grade II listed six-bed mansion was on the market for a cool £10million.

According to Right Move, a search website for properties, the average house price for Woodstock Road and the OX2 postcode is £878,488 but now data has revealed that three homes sold for nearly £2 million more than that bringing the average to £2,541,666.

Warnborough Road, St John Street and Chalfont Road also made the top 10 list.

In August we revealed the 20 most expensive homes sold in Oxford, and how much they actually cost.

However the new data also revealed the cheapest places to live in Oxfordshire.

Though most of the bargain homes were sold in on the edge of the county in Banbury, a couple were snapped up in Oxford.

Osberton Road in Summertown got the top spot for cheapest road – with 11 homes sold for an average price of £67,318.

But there was a catch.

On further, investigation the homes for under £100,000 were sold to over-60s as part of a residential home deal.

On top of the £70,000 fee the buyer had to agree to pay monthly fees which included catering options for around £800 a month.

The fees, which weren't included in the initial sale price paid for emergency alarms, heating, lighting, water, lists, gardens, laundry rooms, communal areas and insurance.

The other streets on the list were: Friars Hill, Setler House, Crouch Street, Hill House, Old Parr Close, Spencer Court on Britannia Road, Hockmore Tower on Pound Way, Britannia Road and The Links on Gillians Way – all averaging at under £120,000.
