Property Solvers said that there were 23 property sales of over £1 million across the SY postcodes area in the last year.

And with sales reaching as high as a cool £1.75 million it means the area is in 74th place across England, Wales and Scotland as having the most sales over the £1 million price point.

Home buying company and auctioneer Property Solvers has crunched through HM Land Registry sold house price statistics to reveal there were 23 residential home sales of over the landmark figure from September 2021 up to September 2022.

The total value of these sales hit £28,430,075... and stunningly this represented a 53 per cent increase (from £16.50 million) compared to the same period in 2020-21.

It all puts SY above Kirkcaldy, in Fife, Scotland, but below Manchester.

Ruban Selvanayagam, Property Solvers co-founder, said it would not be a surprise to see a cooling off across high-end property prices in the coming year.

He said: "Although there remains a fairly healthy volume of sales in this price bracket, evidence from around the country would suggest that buyer appetite for these types of homes has started to drop in recent months.

“£1 million-plus properties - even for the wealthy - are major commitments and indeed affected by the wider economy.

“With continued inflationary pressures and rising interest rates as a result, it would not be too much of a surprise to see a continued cooling off across the high-end property market in the coming year at least."
