Based on the caveats, the most expensive GCB transacted in H1 2019 was 16 Jervois Hill at Chatsworth Park at $30.9m or a unit price per square foot (psf) of $2,032. Knight Frank noted that this was 74.4% higher than the median price psf of $1,166. Accordingly, the GCB was constructed nine years ago with a built-up area of 10,000 sqft.

For transactions of landed homes in GCB areas with an area smaller than 1,400 sqm, the most expensive transaction was 63 Belmont Park, which sold for $39.8m. The sale also represented the overall highest price in terms of both quantum and price psf ($2,653) for H1 2019.

“63 Belmont Park is a newly completed freehold bungalow off Holland Road, indicating how GCBs buyers are still willing to fork out a premium for their ideal property, especially for newer properties,” the report read.
