High ceilings. Covered terraces. Pools overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

These are just a few features you find at homes on the world's most expensive streets. And at prices that most of us can only imagine affording.

In 2013, U.K.-based real estate firm Knight Frank set out to rank the world's most expensive streets by looking at how much properties cost per square metre.

Only France was represented more than once in the top 10.

The World's Most Expensive Streets Look Like This

The world's priciest streets can be found in major cities such as Hong Kong, London and New York. But they're also located in resort destinations such as Costa Smeralda, Italy and Cap Ferrat, France.

The Huffington Post Canada looked at what kind of real estate and accommodation was available in these areas. And the search found some stunning results.

Real estate available in these locales includes apartments in neighbourhoods that have housed the world's most famous actors; villas that allow their occupants to tan under a hot, Mediterranean sun; and pieds-a-terre that could give deep-pocketed owners a luxurious place to stay while on a shopping trip to Paris.
