Avenue Princesse Grace: World’s most expensive street

If you are filthy rich and plan to blow away your money then there is no better place than Avenue Princesse Grace to achieve it. Avenue Princesse Grace in Monaco is being dubbed as world’s most expensive street where by forking out $120,000 you can purchase only a square metre of prime real estate property.

At the moment a 334 square metre four bedroom penthouse is selling for $50 million at an asking price of $149,000 per square metre which does not include a 220 square metre terrace.

A year ago when the prices were booming a square metre of property was available at a rate of $190,000. $120,000 per square metre still seems a bargain to me!!
