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.
