READING is one of the most sought-after locations in the south east for housing.

The Sunday Times recently listed the town as the number one place for first time buyers.

But houses don't come cheap. 

While the average price for a 3-bed house listed on Zoopla in Reading is £335,905, there are also some eye-wateringly expensive mansions for those with the deepest pockets. 

According to house buying site Zoopla, these are Reading's most expensive streets.

  4. Collins End, Goring Heath, Reading RG8 - average price £1,821,688
  5. Willow Lane, Wargrave, Reading RG10 average price £1,746,342

The most expensive house on the most expensive street Ferry Lane is estimated by Zoopla to be worth £4,646,000

Meanwhile, houses on Mill Lane in Kidmore End could set you back as much as £4,444,000, Zoopla estimates.

In addition to the most expensive, Zoopla has also rounded-up the streets with the highest turnover - ie the ones where houses go up for sale most frequently.

That is worked out by dividing the number of sales over the last 5 years (excluding new build properties) by the number of homes in a given area.
