I loved reading the story of Dick Whittington when I was growing up and about how he went to London to make his fortune because he believed the streets were paved with gold. Dick Whittington was a story-book character based on legend but it seems that at least one street in London is “paved with gold!” Courtenay Avenue in North London has been named as the most expensive address in England. Located between Hampstead Heath and Highgate Golf Course, houses on this street come with an average price tag of £6.8 million! Wow! That’s more than most people, including myself, earn in a whole lifetime!
