Top ten: Sweden's most expensive addresses

Top ten: Sweden's most expensive addresses

The agency revealed the whereabouts of the Stockholm elite in a list of the top ten streets in the country, all of which were in the capital, ranked by average home price and average price per square metre.

“Of course there are a number of expensive addresses that are fancier than the rest. The reasons can vary, but the location and the fine homes play a big role,” explained Lars-Erik Nykvist, CEO of Fastighetsbyrån in a statement.

“Other things like tradition and reputation can be a big influence too, sometimes. Some addresses, and even individual buildings, are like strong and attractive brands that some people pay a lot of money for.”

The list was based on data collected since January 2010, and the statistics included only streets where at least five residences have been sold since then.

The top street, in terms of average price for a residence, was Klövervägen on Lidingö, an island to the north and east of central Stockholm, where a typical home would set you back 12.8 million kronor ($1.9 million).

The second most expensive street was also in Lidingö, Ringvägen, coming in at just over 12 million kronor per house, followed by Germaniavägen in Danderyd and Molinvägen in Bromma.

Rounding out the top ten were Örnbogatan, also in Bromma; Norevägen in Danderyd; Gåshaga Brygga on Lidingö; Lilla Erstagatan in central Stockholm; Sollerövägen in Bromma; and Strandvägen in Stockholm.

Each street on the top ten list had average home prices over 10 million kronor.

For those preferring prices per square metre, the most expensive homes in the country are on Erik Dahlbergsallén, northern Stockholm, a street where US golfer Tiger Woods owns property.

Each square-metre on Erik Dahlbergsallén sets owners back 77,319 kronor ($11,600).

Close behind in the list were Fredrikshovsgatan, Kaptensgatan and Köpmangatan, all fetching prices per square metre around 75,000 kronor.

Rounding out the top ten in this list were Strandvägen, Själagårdsgatan, Stryrmansgatan, Sturegatan, Urvädersgränd, and Nybergsgatan.

I noticed the pictures of expensive residences all seem to be apartment buildings. Are there any expensive unattached houses? In North America outside of large cities such as New York wealthy people live in beautiful mansions with many acres of landscaped grounds. Is that the case in Sweden also? I noted the prices mentioned as average for the best neighbourhoods and realized that they are very far below the average house price in my own North American city. I just sold my home which is being torn down by the new owners to build a huge mansion, for $3 million. They are spending $7 million just on the new house not counting what they paid for the property. Of course this is all offshore money.
