  • The Coto Zagaleta development in Benahavís tops the list with an average price of 6.7 million euros for a luxury property

Luxury villas with a swimming pool, garden, very spacious living area and something which millionaires appreciate even more than that: privacy. These are the homes in the Coto Zagaleta residential development in Benahavís, which can boast of being the address with the most expensive houses for sale in Spain. The owners of this exclusive development want an average of 6,758,961 euros from those who want to buy one of these ostentatious properties, according to a survey by the Idealista real estate portal.

However, the Costa del Sol's presence on this elite list of the most expensive streets in Spain is not limited to just that example. Marbella is also in the top ten, and for two reasons: Calle Mozart and Calle Rossina, both in the Sierra Blanca urbanisation, are in seventh and eighth place with average prices of 4,754,944 and 4,715,026 euros, respectively. Just a week earlier, another study from the same company revealed that the most expensive house for sale in Spain is also in Marbella, for 55 million euros.

The silver medal in the ranking of the most expensive houses in the country goes to Avenida del Tibidabo in Barcelona, with an average price of 5,858,750 euros, slightly higher than Paseo Marquesa Viuda de Aldama in La Moraleja (Alcobendas), which takes third place with 5,700,000 euros. There are two other streets where properties cost more than five million euros in the same development in Madrid: Camino del Sur (5,485,192 euros) and Camino Ancho (5,146,875 euros). The next most expensive address is Avenida Pedralbes in Barcelona (4,884,286 euros). After the two streets in Marbella mentioned above, the list ends with Avenida Rocaferra in Sant Andreu de Llavaneres, near Barcelona (4,700,000 euros) and Avenida Portals Vells in Calviá (Mallorca), (4,690,009 euros).

The Idealista study also shows the most exclusive streets in each of the 17 different regions of Spain. As well as the regions with streets in the top ten positions, four others have addresses where properties cost over a million euros: Comunidad Valenciana (2,377,667 euros), Basque Country (2,012,545 euros), Canary Islands (1,208,545 euros) and Cantabria (1,119,127 euros).

The cheapest region is Extremadura, where the most expensive address costs on average 345,345 euros, followed by La Rioja (421,716 euros) and Castilla-La Mancha (428,067 euros).
