Bank of Scotland has revealed Scotland’s 25 most expensive streets, with Ann Street in the Stockbridge area of central Edinburgh taking the top spot.

The bank said Ann Street is “known for its stunning aesthetics and classic Georgian architecture” and will now set wealthy buyers back an average £1.685 million for a house.

Of the 25 most expensive streets in Scotland, 22 are in Edinburgh. Inveresk Village near Musselburgh, and The Scores and Donaldson Crescent in St Andrews are the only three outside of the capital city.

In second place is Wester Coates Avenue near Haymarket in the west end of Edinburgh with an average price of £1.615 million.

Regent Terrace, near Calton Hill in the east side of Edinburgh City Centre, makes up the top three, with properties averaging £1.529 million.

The rest of Scotland’s 10 most expensive streets are also in Edinburgh.

Overall, homes on these elite streets have an asking price of an average £1.4 million.

The others are Danube Street, Heriot Row, Wester Coates Gardens, St Catherine’s Place, Spylaw Bank Road, Hope Terrace and St Bernard’s Crescent.

Graham Blair, Mortgages Director, Bank of Scotland, said: “Ann Street in the beautiful city of Edinburgh tops the most expensive list, setting wealthy buyers back almost £1.7 million on average.

“While not in the top 10 priciest, homes in St Andrews also don’t come cheap, with The Scores and Donaldson Crescent offering properties at over £1.1 million on average.”
