The street in York with the biggest gulf in house prices has been revealed.

National research has discovered that one property on Marygate Lane sold for £100,000 – and another for £2.65 million more.

Strike, the free online estate agent, found that 14 Marygate Lane sold for £100K in August –  less than half the average UK property price.

Meanwhile Almery Garth just 100 yards away was bought recently for £2.75 mill.

It was part of Strike’s investigation into the UK roads with the biggest price differences. You can read more here.

14 Marygate Lane: £100K

It’s the lower ground floor studio apartment of this building

The lower ground floor studio apartment at Abbots Mews, 14 Marygate Lane, “has been tastefully refurbished to the highest of standards”.

It was sold by Ashtons and includes:

  • modern kitchen
  • luxury shower room
  • bed sitting room.

Sam Mitchell, CEO of Strike, said: “The historic city of York is a beautiful place to live and would be tempting for anybody, so it’s fascinating that house prices in the city can vary by such large sums within a matter of metres.

“It’s a city with a lot to offer and a huge range of properties, so it’s easy to see why it would be a great place to call home.

“Wherever you want to live, looking for a street with a big range in prices may reveal a savvy investment opportunity. You can find streets with big differences in prices all over the country.”
