New World Health has published its annual South African Wealth Report for 2018. This includes data on which streets and suburbs are the most expensive in the country. More specifically, it looks at the cost per square metre.

It comes as no surprise that the most expensive streets are concentrated around the Mother City, as property prices in the city have risen sharply over recent months. Clifton and Bantry Bay are not just the most expensive suburbs in the city, but the entire country.

Only one street is not found within those suburbs, which is Dock Road. This road is located on the V&A Marina, and is ranked third in the country.

Other studies, including the Knight Frank Wealth Report, found that Cape Town is one of the 20 most expensive property market in the world, climbing by almost 20% each year.

According to the New World Wealth Report, the most expensive roads outside of Cape Town include Beachyhead Road in Plettenburg Bay, and Lagoon Drive in Umhlanga.

New World Wealth reviews the data on a regular basis, and the latest data shows the cost per square meter on the following streets in South Africa. The prices refer to the average price of a prime 200-400 square metre apartment/villa on a street or suburb.
