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.
