Others to make the top 20 include Queens Road, New Road, The Street, Manor Road, Mill Lane, The Avenue, West Street, Green Lane, The Green and Kings Road.

Alastair McKee, managing director of One77 Mortgages, said: “There we have it, if you want to buck the Brexit market blues you have a better chance of doing so if you live on one of these popular road names.

"While a road name isn’t the be all and end all, for many aspirational homeowners it can certainly have an impact on their decision to buy in the same way a not so desirable name can be off-putting.

In the current market climate, it’s vital to utilise every unique aspect your property possesses in order to get a sale over the line.”
