And pulling into the swish, tree-lined road, it's easy to see why.

Visitors are greeted by a large wooden sign at the street's entrance, and are watched as they make their way in by mounted CCTV cameras.

Loping gently around in a long, slow loop, Bracken Park is made up of a string of large stone houses, almost all protected with huge, black, iron gates and fencing.

Anyone stopping by at most of the residences will also have to announce themselves on high-tech intercoms attached to the bulk of the street's gateposts before being allowed to enter.

Most home-owners on Bracken Park have given their houses a name, and almost all have at least one high-end car parked in the driveway.

The models of choice include Porche, Jaguar, BMW, Audi and Range Rover.

And there's good news for anyone thinking of moving in, with a home on the exclusive street currently up for sale- your's for just 1.275m.

Boasting six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a cloakroom, games room, and almost three quarters of an acre of garden grounds, The stunning Grange has been on the market for just a few months.

Simon Wright, partner at agents Carter Jonas, said he was unsure if the street could accurately be called the county's most expensive, but said the firm could always expect a lot of interest when a house on Bracken Park was up for grabs.

He said: "It's a very exclusive area and it's always a desirable for a lot of reasons. It's very accessible for Leeds Grammar School, and Scarcroft Golf Course and is also on the fringes of the key Yorkshire commercial centres like Leeds and Harrogate.

"There are a lot of familes and business professionals working out of Leeds living on Bracken Park.

"There used to be some famous names in the area too, in the days when Leeds United were in the Premiership- and hopefully we can see those days again soon."

Bracken Park is just a few miles from Seacroft, one of the city's most

deprived areas, where buyers can currently pick up a two-bedroomed terraced house for 35,000
