But now the best 50 in the UK have officially been named and six London streets have made the list.
The list was created by The Telegraph alongside estate agent Knight Frank, who looked at the difference between house prices on the streets compared to their neighbourhoods and the wider area.
As well as house prices, the pair also looked at what the streets offer for families, with nearby schools and locations next to nature such as green spaces.
The houses on sale on these top-rated streets are often kept under wraps, as Jonathan Bramwell from The Buying Solution told The Telegraph: “These homes don’t go anywhere near Rightmove. Our clients specify the house, I approach the owners discretely and they ask for a laughable price.”
