So what does $1 million actually buy you in Auckland? A mansion in the most desired suburb? Not quite.

With a 2011 CV of $1,040,000, this bungalow is expecting to sell for more than $1.1 million at auction this week.   It is a four bedroom, one bathroom home. In average condition, but needs a lot of work. Built in the 1920s now looks like it needs some work.  In the southern part of Mt Eden (bordering Epsom, Mt Roskill and Three Kings) its in the Double Grammar zone, as well as ANI and Maungawhau which explains its price tag.
