I was jogging through Strensall the other day and thought it would be quite interesting to do some digging into what’s been going on in one of the surrounding villages in the Greater York area. For those, of you who don’t know, Strensall is a beautiful part of York, located circa seven miles north of York city centre and covers an area of around 1,177 hectares with good access links to York city, a ten-minute drive to the A64 and a host of Primary schools within a five mile radius (catchment areas having a relatively positive impact on property prices in the area).
Oh, and let’s not forget the three local pubs, The Ship Inn, The Half Moon Inn and The Six Bells.
What I found out about the village was quite interesting. The average value of a property in Strensall is £307,850, which is £25,662 above the average of its neighbouring town/village of Haxby. The most expensive street in Strensall is Flaxton Road, YO32, where an average property is worth in excess of £685,300, an increase of 0.82% (unadjusted for inflation) from 12 months ago.
The most expensive property was a lovely six bed detached house on Flaxton Road, which sold for £920,000 in 2011. The average rent of houses in the village over the last 3 years has been £925 per month and 77 people have sold their property in the last 12 months, according to the Land Registry.
