THE top 10 most expensive roads in Bournemouth have been revealed in the Zoopla Rich List 2020.

And all are in the exclusive Talbot Woods and Branksome Woods areas of the town.

Properties in the top two roads - Little Forest Road and Leven Avenue - have an average asking price of more than £1 million.

The following three, Berwick Road, Glenferness Avenue and Rothesay Road, all average more than £900,000.

A spokesman for Zoopla said the leafy area has many attractions including top sports clubs and a prestigious independent school.

"Of the 10 most expensive streets, the list is split equally between the BH4 and BH3 postcodes, both of which attract homebuyers with deep pockets drawn not only to the quality of the properties but their proximity to West Hants Lawn Tennis and Leisure Club, Meyrick Park Golf Club as well as the highly regarded Talbot Heath Girls School.

"The two roads are also within walking distance of Bournemouth train station, providing easy access for commuters to London and Southampton."

Zoopla also revealed that demand for property in Bournemouth has risen by a massive 136 per cent in the last year with just a 13 per cent increase in availability.

Julian Hewlett, sales director at Lovett International estate agency in Bournemouth, said: "Bournemouth is an incredible place to live and work, boasting some of the best schools, coastal views, restaurants and amenities in the UK.

"It’s natural that homeowners with big budgets are drawn to streets like Little Forest Road and Leven Avenue, which are home to some fabulous properties."
