Bournemouth’s 2020 property Rich List revealed


The average price of a property on Bournemouth’s two most expensive streets is more than £1,000,000, according to new data released today by Zoopla, the UK’s most comprehensive property destination.

The Zoopla Rich List 2020, which reveals the town’s ten most expensive streets, shows that Little Forest Road (BH4) and Leven Avenue (BH4), both located in the prestigious Talbot Woods area, are the two most expensive streets to buy property in Bournemouth, with average property prices easily topping £1,000,000.

BH4 and BH3 reign supreme

The Zoopla Rich List 2020, the definitive list of the costliest streets in Britain based on average house prices, shows that properties in BH4 hold the top two places in Bournemouth, joined by homes in BH3.

Of the ten 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 & 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.

Supply and demand

News of the town’s ten most expensive streets follows recent data from Zoopla that shows demand for homes in the Bournemouth area has experienced phenomenal growth in the last year, rising by 136% since July 2019. The number of homes available to purchase locally hasn’t kept pace with demand however, rising by just 13% in the same period.

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

The Zoopla Rich List 2020 highlights the desirability of property in Bournemouth, especially at the prime end of the market. The town’s coastal location, outstanding schools and fantastic shops, restaurants and bars mean that an address on one of its most expensive streets is worth more than £1,000,000.

New working patterns, especially remote working, mean house hunters from all over the country are seeking bigger properties with outdoor space. Bournemouth has a wide range of these types of properties, not least for those who can pay a premium for their next home.
