While our list - compiled from Land Registry data, which is publicly available – confirms West Common as the most prestigious street in Harpenden by quite some distance, it does have a close rival.

The third and eighth-placed properties are both on West Common Way, a leafy private road. Number 44 and number 4 changed hands for a hefty £3,200,000 and £2,410,000 respectively.
