A leafy Greater Manchester street has been named among the best 50 streets to live on in Britain. 

Stamford Road, on the border between Bowden and Hale, makes the list compiled after research by Knight Frank and The Telegraph. Touching Springbank Park, it is within walking distance of Hale village. According to the study, the average house price for the neighbourhood is a cool £752,558. That’s in comparison to the wider local authority where the average is £365,133.

The research as a whole shows the disparity between prices on the best streets, the surrounding neighbourhoods and the local authority as a whole. It has taken the top slice of the deprivation index to identify the best places to live by region - based on crime levels, employment opportunities, quality of the public realm and proximity to schools and transport.  With the help of estate agents, the best streets have then been identified with a focus on homes in suburbs and towns, rather than inner city spots or rural villages.

The Stamford Road submission from the Telegraph reads: “The roads surrounding Springbank Park on the border between Bowden and Hale are lined with Victorian and Edwardian housing stock and are within walking distance of Hale village centre and the train station, with a 30-minute journey into Manchester Piccadilly. Altrincham Grammar School for Boys and Altrincham Grammar School for Girls are both within a very short walk of the street putting a considerable premium on the house prices, according to Savills' Andrew Thorpe.”
