FIVE of the 20 most expensive streets in the Exeter area to live in are in Topsham, according to recently issued figures.

FIVE of the 20 most expensive streets in the Exeter area to live in are in Topsham, according to recently issued figures.

Many of the properties are there by the virtue that much of Topsham is in a conservation area, and many of the properties are grade one or two listed buildings.

Much of the town profited from the increase in industry in Exeter in the 17th century, as did Topsham, as the city's main sea-port.

According to property valuers group Mouseprice, top of the Topsham list, and coming in at number three in the area - after Longbrook Lane and Baring Crescent in Exeter - is Tresillian Gardens.

There an average house will fetch £711,000, despite fears of a 'cooling off' in the housing market.

Next is Elm Grove Road which is something of a surprise, because, with the exception of Riversmeet Terrace, all the properties were built after 1900 - but regardless, the average price is £622,200.

This is closely followed by one of the oldest streets in the town, Monmouth Street - these houses in the 17th and 18th centuries belonged to a family of Exeter merchants called Sanford - and the average property is listed at £580,900, with Ferry Road properties coming in at 13 at £529,600.

The research was based on land registry data on sale prices.
