Ever wondered where each town in North Hampshire would sit on a Monopoly board? Well fear not, as we've crunched the numbers to bring you the answer.

It's a classic game that has resulted in far more family arguments than we'd all like to admit.

And with plenty of regional versions across the UK, we know we've definitely been waiting for a Hampshire version for years.

However, one has not been forthcoming from Hasbro, with the Winchester version the closest we got.

So now, here at the Basingstoke Gazette and Andover Advertiser, we've decided to make our own North Hampshire version.

We used property website Rightmove to analyse the average property prices over the last 12 months for 22 of the largest towns and villages across the region, and matching it with its classic Monopoly equivalent.

This will also be useful if you're looking to buy a new house, whether you need to upsize or get onto the property ladder for the first time.

The dark blues

And the title for North Hampshire's most expensive town goes to... Stockbridge.

Basingstoke Gazette:

Right on the southern cusp of the region, Stockbridge is, according to property prices over the last 12 months, to Hampshire what Mayfair is to London.

The small town in the heart of Test Valley, which has a population of under 600 according to the 2011 census, had an average sale price of £657,062, making it a clear winner.

And being valiantly supported on the board, it's fellow dark blue would be Odiham.

Basingstoke Gazette:

The beautiful village sits just south of the M3 at junction 5, and had an average price of £509,091.

The greens

In a North Hampshire Monopoly board, two of the greens would be Hart villages, but first, the equivalent of Bond Street would be New Alresford.

The town in the Winchester district had an average property price of £497,682.

Behind that, Hartley Wintney would be the Oxford Street, with an average sale price of £491,674, with Hook the Regent Street of this board.

It had an average price of £468,421.

The yellows

In the real deal, the yellows were Piccadilly, Coventry Street and Leicester Square.

But our research shows that the North Hampshire version would be Micheldever (£461,300), Fleet (£458,389) and Sherborne St John (£438,889).

Basingstoke Gazette:

The reds

Bramley was the next place on the list, with an average price of £435,861.

On the classic Monopoly board, its counterpart would be Trafalgar Square.

Also in the red section would be Yateley (£419,526 - Fleet Street) and Sherfield-on-Loddon (£406,899 - Strand).

Basingstoke Gazette:

The oranges

Blackwater, Whitchurch and Oakley come next in the orange section.

Basingstoke Gazette:

The three places were split by just £544 in the Rightmove stats - with average sale prices of £390,574, £390,178 and £390,030.

They represent the spaces occupied by Vine Street, Marlborough Street and Bow Street.

The pinks

Moving down to the bottom end of the board, next we find the pinks.

The Northumberland Avenue of North Hampshire would be Overton, the village having an average price of £360,488.

Next is Whitehall, which would be represented by Kingsclere (£346,902).

Basingstoke Gazette:

The final pink is Pall Mall, or in this case, Alton, with an average price of £343,270.

The light blues

The light blues is where we find three of the larger towns in the region - Farnborough, Basingstoke and Tadley.

The average property price in Farnborough was £331,609, enough to occupy the spot of Pentonville Road.

With the fourth cheapest property price of the 22 we looked at, Basingstoke occupies the Euston Road spot.

Basingstoke Gazette:

The town is the third largest settlement in Hampshire, only coming behind the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth.

Its average property price was £319,915.

And occupying the place of The Angel, Islington is the Berkshire border town of Tadley.

Its average property price was £302,192.

The browns

And finally the browns. The two towns were the only in the region with average property prices under £300,000.

Aldershot secured the place of Whitechapel Road, with an average property price of £299,613.

And finally, the Old Kent Road of North Hampshire is Andover, making it the unofficial most affordable place to live in North Hampshire.

Basingstoke Gazette:

The town had an average property price of £287,561.
