Augusta Crescent in Penarth is off the equally-desirable Augusta Road and has a mix of new traditional-style two-storey homes, substantial pre-war semi-detached houses and bungalows
A list of Penarth’s 15 most desirable streets – ranked in terms of average house price – has been compiled by the local estate agents ACL.
The top street for price appreciation is Augusta Crescent where the average price paid for a house in 2018 was £695,000.
PDN commentators say the figures for Augusta Crescent (compiled by estate agents ACL) have been skewed by this modest bungalow No 33 Augusta Crescent which was the only property sold in the Crescent in 2018 – and was bought for £695,000 – making it the “average price” for the street
The complete list is as follows:-
- Augusta Crescent – average price paid £695,000
- Craven Walk – average price paid £690,000
- Marine Parade – average price paid £675,000
- Trem Y Bae – average price paid £675,000
- Cwrt-y-Vil Rd – average price paid £667,813
- Maillards Haven – average price paid £667,500
- Victoria Rd – average price paid £662,500
- Sully Rd – average price paid £621,000
- Raisdale Gardens – average price paid £585,000
- Thorn Grove – average price paid £582,500
- Lavernock Rd – average price paid £580,166
- Church Avenue – average price paid £570,000
- Tudor Close – average price paid £575,000
- Whitcliffe Drive – average price paid £557,500
- Alberta Place – average price paid £557,000
There are of course several individual homes in Penarth – notably in Marine Parade and Park Road and Lower Penarth which command far-higher prices than the street-average price of Augusta Crescent – but this particular survey is based on the average price for the entire street and not on the priciest single property on it.
House prices in the Vale of Glamorgan increased by over 6% during 2018 according to data released by estate agents ACL compiled from figures compiled by he Nationwide Building Society and Principality Building Society. ACL says that the data shows the residential property market in Wales is resilient and in particular, the “ever-popular Vale of Glamorgan remains a sound area to invest in property”.
Tom Denman, Chief Financial Operating Officer at Principality Building Society says “Affordability of homes in the country compared to areas of south-west England is likely to have helped growth, along with supply and demand.”
Data from the Nationwide Building Society and Principality Building Society showed that whilst the average house price across the UK only rose by 0.5% during 2018,
in Wales, the average house price rose by 3%. last year.
This is thought to be a photo of the “Augusta” of Augusta Crescent – Lady Augusta Paget
BACKGROUND: Augusta Crescent and Augusta Road appear to have been named – almost inevitably – after a member of the extended family of the Earl of Plymouth and his assorted forebears.
Augusta Paget (born 1839) was the daughter of Lady Georgina Paget.
Augusta’s mother – Lady Paget was the daughter of Field Marshal Henry William Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey – which gives her the distinction of being a North Walian.
Augusta married into the Crofton family and died in 1928.
