Ten Derbyshire neighbourhoods with the fastest-rising house prices

House prices in parts of Derbyshire have risen by more than 50% in just one year, new figures have revealed.

House prices have soared during the pandemic, thanks to a combination of pent-up demand, a small supply of houses, and the desire for more space and rural living.

However, analysis of ward-level figures from the Office for National Statistics show huge local variation when it comes to rising house and flat prices in Derbyshire and some areas have seen low house-price rises or even falls in value.

Unstone in North East Derbyshire saw property prices increase faster than anywhere else in Derbyshire in the year to June 2021, with the average home in the neighbourhood selling for around £297,500.

That was up by 70% from the average sale price of £175,500 the year before.

The average cost was also more than five times the £54,875 you would typically have paid in the area in the year to June 2001.

House prices in the ward still don’t come anywhere near the most expensive in Derbyshire – which can be found in Chatsworth in Derbyshire Dales, where the average house sold for £603,078 in the year to June 2021 (up by 24% from £487,500 the year before).

Also making it into the top five neighbourhoods for price growth is Wingfield in Amber Valley. The average property there sold for £363,000 in the year to June 2021, up 61% from £225,500.

It was followed by Ashbourne North in Derbyshire Dales, where a typical home sold for £300,000 (up 53% from £196,000), Limestone Peak in High Peak, where the average price was £240,000 (up 41% from £170,000), and Little Hallam in Erewash, where homes sold for £139,975 on average (up 40% from £100,000).

At the other end of the scale, some neighbourhoods have actually seen house prices drop in the last year.

The area to lose the most value was Brailsford in Derbyshire Dales, which saw the price of the average property drop from £365,000 in the year to June 2020 to £275,900 in the year to June 2021.

It’s a drop of 24%, and a loss of £89,100 in value.

Also seeing steep losses were Bolsover East in Bolsover (£151,250, down 16% from £180,000), Bradwell in Derbyshire Dales (£245,000, down 15% from £287,500), and Brimington South in Chesterfield (£188,000, down 15% from £220,000).

The figures are a crude average and don’t take into account the type of property sold.

As such, the average price may be skewed for wards that have seen a small number of sales in the last year.

Increases and decreases might also reflect change in the types of property sold, for example if lots of new flats have been built in an area that was previously made up of detached homes.
