Do you know how much a square metre of space in your house is worth? New figures have revealed the priciest places for property – and the cheapest.

Chelmsford topped the charts in Essex at a cost of £3,704 per square metre, but was left lagging behind the East of England’s costliest city, Cambridge, where a square metre of space will set you back an eye-watering £5,474.

In Suffolk, St Edmundsbury was the most expensive at £2,569 per square metre, while Waveney propped up the table at £1,814.

Nationally, the most expensive place to buy was in Kensington in London, where a single square metre of property will set the average buyer back more than £19,000.

In Suffolk, Suffolk Coastal was the second costliest district (£2,509/sq m), ahead of Babergh (£2,502/sq m) and Mid Suffolk (£2,299/sq m).

Followed by Forest Heath (£2,161/sq m), Ipswich (£2,029/sq m) and Waveney was bottom (£1,814/sq m).

In Essex, the second most expensive district was Uttlesford (£3,529/sq m), followed by Maldon (£2,916/sq m), Braintree (£2,882/sq m), Colchester (£2,749/sq m) and Tendring (£2,213/sq m).
