St Albans has the sixth highest number of property millionaires in Britain outside London, a new study has revealed.
According to Zoopla, 10 per cent of St Albans’ housing stock is made up of £1m-plus properties – a total of 4,981 individual homes.
The current average property value in St Albans is £596,890.
Guildford topped the list with 5,889 £1m-plus properties, followed by Cambridge, Reading, Sevenoaks and Oxford.
Not surprisingly, most of Britain’s 768,553 property millionaires – whose homes account for 2.7 per cent of the nation’s housing stock - live in London.

Lawrence Hall, spokesperson for Zoopla, said: “Whilst there might be a greater number of £1m-plus properties than ever before, the data shows that they still only represent a small fraction of all UK housing stock.”
