Figures show the stark house price gap between London and parts of Wales
If you had a spare £1.8m, you could buy a house in Westminster’s Cambridge Street or 12 homes with the same street name in Cardiff’s Grangetown area.

Exclusive analysis by WalesOnline of six years’ worth of property data has discovered enormous differences in house prices for streets with the same name in Cardiff and London.

Take Cambridge Street in Grangetown, where 11 terraced houses and one flat have been sold since 2010 for a grand total of £1.75m.

All that money would still leave you a few thousand short of a terraced house in another Cambridge Street  just around the corner from Victoria station in London.   Four years ago number 30 sold there for £1.77m.

While the gap is widest in specific neighbourhoods in Cardiff and London, average house prices across the two cities remain poles apart.

The latest Land Registry figures show Cardiff had an average house price of £203,000 so far this year.

In London, it has been £539,000 so far in 2015.
