The Netherlands has a growing number of homes valued at more than one million euros and they now account for 3% of the total housing stock, according to property data firm Calcasa.

“At the end of 2013, only 15,000 homes were worth more than a million euros, but that figure has now risen to 143,000,” Calcasa said on Wednesday. The total rose 70% last year, and it’s the biggest percentage increase since the company started keeping records.

Most of the million-euro houses are in Amsterdam – some 18,550 in total – and 583 are concentrated on the Keizersgracht, which has the most million-euro houses and more in the country.

The Hague is in second place with 9,300 million euros of housing, followed by Rotterdam (4,050) and Utrecht (3,800). The largest percentage increase in expensive homes was recorded in Groningen, where the number of homes costing one million euros or more increased by 148%.

However, the leafy towns of Bloemendaal and Aerdenhout have the highest number of million-euro homes by percentage. In Aerdenhout, 74% of properties would cost more than one million euros if they went on sale today, in Bloemendaal 59%.

The Konijnenlaan in Wassenaar is the most expensive street for the fourth consecutive year.
