It was followed by Christchurch, where a lifestyle home on Hawthornden Rd fetched a cool $5.8m and a flat in St Asaph St, Phillipstown, sold for $65,000.
Wellington's top property was a $3.78m home looking over Oriental Bay to the city centre, while the cheapest – a unit in a Lower Hutt retirement community – had a view of a pohutukawa tree and a price tag of just $80,000.
