Think your house price is all about location? A new survey suggests it's not just the postcode that matters - it's the name of the street, road or terrace that can buoy or dampen the value of your property.

Those with homes on a "warren" can command property prices more than double the national average - but those on streets, courts or terraces have the lowest average values throughout the UK.

Property portal Zoopla, which analysed more than 28m homes, found that the average house price on a "warren" stands at £607,267 – nearly 73 per cent more than the £282,978 current average value of a home in the UK.

The second most expensive addresses are found on a "chase" where the average home will set you back £482,867, followed by "mount" where properties are valued at an average of £390,500.

7 Green £363,348

10 Lane £342,059

And proving the patriarchy is still alive and kicking, houses on "king" or "prince" related roads are worth more than those with "queen" or "princess".

Still, the value we place on royal roads suggests we're deeply loyal to our current monarch, with Elizabeth taking the crown for top prices.

Lawrence Hall, spokesman for Zoopla, said: “The saying goes that the three most important factors in buying a house are location, location, location; our research shows that even the road name you choose can make a difference to how much you can expect to pay when finding a property.

"Where a ‘warren’ might appeal for those looking for exclusivity, ‘streets’, ‘courts’ and ‘terraces’ could offer more affordable options.”
