A penthouse apartment in Auckland currently on the market could be the most expensive house listing in the country.

The $42 million home is situated on top of The Pacifica in central Auckland, which is a 54-storey building in Commerce St. The apartment has five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, six garages, and 1219 sqm of floor space – and is spread across the buildings’ top two floors.

Pene Milne of New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty, the agent for the home, says from what’s advertised and known, it’s likely the most expensive residential home on the market in the country when compared to other houses similar to it.

The apartment has caught the eye of both New Zealand and overseas buyers since it has a foreign buyer exemption, meaning those overseas don’t need approval from the Overseas Investment Office.

“It is the most exclusive apartment on the market,” Milne tells Newshub.

The online listing says the apartment has 360-degree views of Waitematā Harbour and Auckland city. There’s also a 24-hour valet and concierge service.
