Hey big spender – want to buy a new home in the most expensive part of York?

Well, you’re in luck because York’s 2020 property rich list has just been published by homes experts Zoopla.

It shows that the average price of a property on York’s two most expensive addresses is more than £1.1 million.

At number one on the York rich list is The Purey Cust (YO1) – the development off Precentor’s Court created from the former Purey Cust Nuffield Hospital.

And runner up is Driffield Terrace (YO24). In both these locations, average property prices hit a million-plus.
