TOP 5 The most expensive properties in Cape Town
By now, it’s no secret that Cape Town has some of the most expensive properties in the South African market. And, while this can’t really be argued; it should be pointed out that the Mother City also has some of the most stunning properties, featuring some of the most desirable views.
These views come at a premium though; and with buyers in the international property market realising that the Cape’s coastline is a sought-after commodity, thanks to its world-class views, we can only see price tags getting heavier. Sure, anybody can take a leisurely drive along the coast and enjoy these views. But getting to enjoy it from the comfort of your home? That’s an amazing privilege and honour.
When you place a fixed-odds lotto bet on games such as US Powerball with Lottoland for as little as R55 for a single entry, you’re automatically affording yourself the chance to win some of the world’s biggest cash prizes – the type of cash wins that could literally change your life, and make the following properties seem like pocket change:
On the market for R75 million, this eloquent six-bedroom house in Fresnaye in Cape Town boasts the most incredible views of the Atlantic seaboard - and even comes with its own vineyard, perfect for those wine lovers.
Spread over two plots, there's no shortage of space here in this beautiful, well-appointed home. There are six bedrooms (four of them featuring full en-suites), five full bathrooms spread across two levels, a further three guest bathrooms - and a three-car garage, even additional parking for another four cars. Perfect for housing your supercar collection, then – a budget beater wouldn’t really look right pulling into this plush home’s driveway, after all.
Of course, why would you want to take the stairs when you can simply take the lift instead? You'll have access to the living room, family room, TV room, dining room, home theatre room, gym area and, of course, the wine cellar. The vineyard isn't for show either; you'll be fully equipped to make your own wine on-site. This stunning home is technologically advanced, too - the fully-automated control system (operable via your smartphone) can turn on your lights, television and sound system. This is certainly a winner in our books.
Another Fresnaye property – and coincidentally at the very same price point as our initial entrant. Stellar views and incredible living spaces seem to be the order of the day in this wealthy area; the love of wine, too – this is another home which features its very own private vineyard.
Also, boasting the same incredible seaward views, you’ll fall in love with this home’s modern charm – especially if you’ve got young kids; there’s a dedicated, delightfully-equipped play area for them. This modern masterpiece was designed by a leading architect and is nestled directly against the nature reserve - which allows for those spectacular sea views. Stylish and sophisticated in every aspect, you're also spoiled for space thanks to six bedrooms (also four en-suite), eight additional bathrooms, an impressive five lounges and six garages to house your car collection; with space for another four in an open parking area.
The kitchen is every homemaker's dream come true; and after a delightful home-cooked dinner while overlooking the sunset, you can retreat to the state-of-the-art home theatre room to enjoy a movie or two! It also comes with an elevator which allows access to all levels; and like its counterpart, it too has a winemaking studio and a wonderful wine tasting room.
Taking a slight step up from Fresnaye and heading much closer to the coastline for those stellar views, this sensational and dramatic home will immediately charm you from the moment you enter the spacious double volume entrance hall.
Based at the foot of the famed Twelve Apostles mountain range, this Camps Bay home will overwhelm you with its sophisticated feel and underrated elegance. It’s simply beautiful from every angle, and it affords you some of the most enviable views on the face of this planet:
Glide from level to level with the glass lift - it's the quickest access to the six bedrooms and six en-suite bathrooms, the three luxurious lounges, the amazing fully-equipped cinema - or even the steam room and sauna; a great way to unwind after an intense workout session in your private gym.
This beautifully-appointed home is a wonderful example of the term “quality of life”, and we’re pretty sure that winning a Powerball cash prize will have you scrambling to snap it up – a bargain at only R77.5 million.
