The TN13 area can claim to be Kent’s “Millionaire’s Row”, with more £1 million property sales than anywhere else in our county.

There were over 14,000 houses sold for over £1 million across England and Wales between the start of April 2023 and the end of March 2024. That’s according to an exclusive analysis of the latest Land Registry data by the Reach Data Unit.

Almost half of them (49%) were in London. However, 375 houses in Kent were sold for over a million in the last 12 months. That’s the fifth highest of any county outside of London.

A total of 65 of those were in the TN13 postcode area, which is more than in any other part of Kent. The most expensive house sold in our region over the last year was Alderwood House on Penshurst Road in Tonbridge.
