The 10 most expensive areas to buy a property in Bristol have been revealed with a sharp rise in median price for the city’s most expensive neighbourhood.
The Office for National Statistics data shows the median house price hit £725,000 in Westbury-on-Trym which overtook Henleaze as the most expensive area to buy property as of September 2022. The ONS’ last data, recorded in June 2022, had the median house price in Westbury-on-Trym valued at £585,500. All but one of the 10 neighbourhoods on the list are based in north Bristol.
The median price paid for a property means the ONS has arranged every deal struck to purchase a home in the year ending September 2022 and selected the middle price. Therefore, there will be an equal 50/50 split of purchases in each area above the price included in the list and below it.
