Sale prices only tell one story though. A different way of looking at house prices and comparing data across areas is to record sales by square metre. The website Housemetric applies this approach and finds that most expensive street in the E11 2 postcode area by square metre is Halstead Road, followed by Cowley Road, Wellesley Road and Cranbourne Avenue.
