Study Finds Homes on Embarrassing U.K. Roads Are 20% Cheaper Time to house hunt on Crotch Crescent!

If you're looking for a good deal on a home in England, you might want to consider an address on Crotch Crescent, Turkey Cock Lane or Clitterhouse Road.

Real estate website NeedaProperty.com recently analyzed home values on 15 roads voted to be the most embarrassing to live on, and the results showed you could save 20% (an average of 84,000 pounds or $140,000) by moving onto a road with a risqué name.

The site polled 2,000 Brits to determine the streets they'd be most ashamed to say they lived on, then analyzed property values on those roads compared to similar locations nearby. The results have gotten wide coverage in the British press. 

The list of embarrassing street names included some uniquely British slang terms like Minge Lane, Slag Lane and Fanny Hands Lane, along with some internationally chuckle-worthy titles like The Knob, Cumming Street and Cock A-Dobby.
