According to a city estate agent, while some streets in Norwich are held in high "prestige" the cheaper price options also reflect the type and size of the property rather than just the desirability of the area.

Kris Pearce, branch manager of Minors & Brady based in Unthank Road, said: "The average house value upon streets tends to reflect the type of properties that are on that street.

"For example, if there is one five bed home in good condition it is going to bump the value of the whole street whereas if there is a block of flats the average price will be much lower.

"The five elements we look at when valuing a house include the size of the property, the size of the plot, the building's condition, its location; is it near a busy road or bars and clubs, or the area it is in considering the locality to schools and parks.

"Certain streets are seen as having more prestige, such as Unthank Road or Thunder Lane in Thorpe St Andrew. Streets near good schools and green parks will inevitably have higher prices compared to houses of a similar size and condition in other areas.

"If one house sells for a good price it will inevitably push up the value of others nearby. The supply and demand for these properties means the value sticks and tends to increase over time."
