The NZ Herald on Sunday recently ran a list of the top ten properties sold in NZ in 2015.
The country’s 10 priciest house sales of the year were all in Auckland and their collective worth tallies more than $100 million. The 10 properties have a combined price tag of $105.8m, equivalent to that of 138 standard Auckland homes or 535 median-priced Southland residences. Russell in the Bay of Islands recorded the most expensive property deal outside Auckland in the last year: a Paroa Bay Rd house fetched $5.875m in March. Data analysis company CoreLogic has released an exclusive breakdown to the Herald on Sunday of the most-expensive property sales for the year, providing an insight into the luxurious tastes of the country’s most cashed-up buyers.
The multimillion-dollar properties are in Auckland City, the North Shore and Waiheke Island, and feature extravagant trappings reserved for the super rich.
A six-bedroom waterfront mansion in Herne Bay (64 Sentinel Road) that sits on more than 4000sq m of land in the nation’s most exclusive postcode, took out top spot after selling earlier this year for $24m – $8m over CV.
