Got R180 million? If so, then purchasing a property would be one of the best ways to spend your money…
But you will need anything upward of R69 million to R180 million and as much as R750 million for a top end mansion on the Atlantic Seaboard.
The Seeff Property group currently holds mandates on five extraordinary mansions located in Constantia Upper, Zimbali, Fresnaye, Clifton and Sandhurst, all suburbs with enviable addresses.
Samuel Seeff, chairman of the Seeff Property Group, says Cape Town is where you will find some of the most exclusive mansions in the country, especially in Clifton, Bantry Bay and Fresnaye on the Atlantic Seaboard where prices have reached upwards R100m to R275m, and in Bishopscourt and Constantia Upper in the Southern Suburbs where prices have topped the R60m price mark.
The Atlantic Seaboard is also home to the most exclusive streets in the country such as Nettleton Road in Clifton where you can expect to pay upwards of R150m.
Other top end areas
Other top end areas where you will find mansions with the most enviable addresses include Waterkloof in Pretoria East, and the Sandton suburbs in Gauteng. In KZN, you will find these super homes mostly in Zimbali and Umhlanga.
The buyer profile of these mansion properties tends to be mixed, ranging from business executives and entrepreneurs to foreign embassies and consulates in the case of Bishopscourt and Constantia Upper according to Seeff.
