Bishop & # 39; s Avenue in North London, also known as Billionaire & # 39; s Row, is a street with 66 houses where some of the richest people in the world live.

Previous homeowners are the Sultan of Brunei, Saudi Royals, Heather Mills and Sir Billy Butlin – founder of the holiday camps.

Billionaire Richard Desmond, former owner of Express Newspapers and founder of Northern & Shell die Ok! Publish! magazine, also owned a mansion on the street.

Many of the luxury street houses, where a two-bedroom apartment costs £ 3 million, have been uninhabited since they were purchased in the 1980s.

A row of ten houses worth £ 73 million has been vacant since they were allegedly bought by the Saudi royal family.

And in 2016 it was reported that Justin Bieber rents a 15-bedroom house on the street for £ 108,000 a month.

An investigation by the Guardian discovered in 2014 that the row of townhouses together was worth around £ 350 million.

An Iranian resident told the newspaper: & # 39; Ninety-five percent of the people who live here do not really live here. It is a terrible place to really live.

& # 39; It is very boring and the road is very busy. I don't think many people want to live in such big houses anyway. & # 39;

Many of the houses were bought for around £ 1 million in the late 80s, but were never inhabited and now a detached townhouse will be for sale for £ 15 million.

The average house price in the UK is £ 230,776, which is 65 times less than the average £ 15 million townhouse on Bishop's Avenue.
