Lawrence Hall of Zoopla said: “London boasts all of Britain’s twenty priciest addresses. Prime properties in the capital have long been a magnet for the super-wealthy looking for a safe investment asset.
“For the lucky few who can afford these stratospheric pricetags, the fabulous mansions on streets like Kensington Palace Gardens and the Boltons are offering very strong returns.
