It was the only £1m-plus home sold locally in May
You might not be surprised to hear that a house in Rushcliffe took the top spot of Nottingham's most expensive homes sold in May.
Especially as just last month Zoopla placed three Rushcliffe roads in the most expensive streets list.
However, this month, it was not Edwalton or West Bridgford that cames top. Ranked in first position for May was a home with a Ruddington address - a detached in Old Road that combines modern additions with some fabulous original features. The house sold for a whopping £1,150,000.
Estate agency practice Thomas James has an office in Ruddington.
Denise Selwood, associate director with the firm, said: "I'm not at all surprised to see Ruddington at the top of this list. There are some very unique properties in the area that are full of history. Ruddington is a growing village with good facilities... it is a very much an up-and-coming location, very vibrant but essentially one that is community focused."
Company director, Tom Reynolds, added: "It is fantastic to see that Ruddington tops the list, but it really shouldn’t come as any surprise. Not only does Ruddington have a wealth of local amenities and facilities for everybody but it also enjoys close proximity to Nottingham city centre and West Bridgford of course.
"Add to that, the fabulous Rushcliffe countryside that surrounds the village... Ruddington does indeed deserve some attention from home buyers looking for the very best of the best!"
Next on the most expensive homes sold list is a house in North Muskham that sold for just below the million pound mark at £965,000, while a semi in Tattershall Drive, Nottingham's exclusive Park Estate sold for £919,573.
According to the Land Registry, 23,963 residential sales have been registered from May 2019. Across England and Wales, there were 459 £1m or more sales, but only one million pound or more home sold in Notts it seems, compared to 294 registered in April, including 88 at £2m or more.

The Land Registry lists the price paid for every property bought at market value. The data also includes sales under a power of sale/repossessions, buy-to-lets (where they can be identified by a Mortgage) and transfers to non-private individuals. It may take several weeks for sales to be registered after completion so some sales from later in May may not be included in the data yet.
