Spiders Lane in Exmouth and Lickers Lane in Prescott also had four times fewer house sales compared to Lime Grove and Parkwood Road.

Unsurprisingly, not many want to live in Loveless Gardens in Gateshead – since 1997 just FOUR homes have been sold.

“But the actual name of a street could also have a significant impact on the value of your house.

“An unusual street name shouldn’t be the reason you don’t buy a property, particularly if it’s your dream house, but just bear in mind that you’re going to be reminded daily of the street you live on, so you need to be comfortable with the name if it’s a little out of the ordinary.”
