Another horribly depressing tube map. Unlike this one, which showed us the average price of renting a one bedroom flat at each stop, this one cuts us even deeper, proving that the probability of us ever owning our own place in this city is very, very slim. If you’re feeling fragile, you better look away now.
Emoov, in a horribly sadistic moment of madness, decided to collate together the average house price at all of the 280 stops on the London Underground. Why? We don’t really know. According to the map, the most expensive areas in the city to own a house are High Street Kensington, South Kensington and Knightsbridge, with the former setting the standards high at an eye-watering £2.6 million.
We always knew we were never going to be able to afford to live next door to Harrods but the worst part is that there’s not really any let up. According to the map, the cheapest places to live are Barking and Dagenham but even a pad far out in East will still set you back £237,000. That seems like a steal though at roughly 13 times cheaper than a place in Zone 1.
If there’s one silver lining to the whole thing it’s that it appears jumping just one station down the line could save you hundreds of thousands. Forget living in Turnham Green, when just a hop, skip and a jump down the District line to Acton Town will save you £400,000.
If we’re honest, we’re totally confused right now. How about we all just move up North? Have you seen what this money could get you there?
