I love looking at expensive houses and I love sharing them with you when I do. 

There’s just something about looking at really fancy mansions and getting a peak at how seriously rich people live that satisfies something in me. 

So I decided to take a look at what a R50 million mansion would look like in different cities across South Africa. I searched in each province and then in most major cities and these were the three that reached the R50 million mark. 

Have a look:


7 bedroom in Bryanston

The aerial view of this place alone made me gasp in surprise. There’s an indoor and outdoor pool, a tennis court, a cottage, a summer house, a guest flatlet and an immaculately landscaped garden.

And if that doesn’t convince you that this place is amazing, then lemme tell you some more. There’s a grand entrance hall with a spiral staircase that leads to a study, a lounge with elegant French doors, a beautiful dining room and a spacious modern kitchen which opens into a courtyard that has a koi pond!

As if that's not enough, there’s also a wine cellar and the master bedroom even has a private lounge and dressing room.

4 bedroom house in Ballito

If you don’t mind golf estate living then you’re sure to be happy here. All the bedrooms are en suite and there’s a large basement parking area that has a lift where you can access the rest of the house.

There’s also a beautiful curved staircase with wooden balustrades, Swarovski chandeliers and beautiful finishes throughout the house.

Cape Town

5 bedroom house in Fresnaye
Sophisticated and stylish spring to mind when you look at this home. There’s a beautiful view of the ocean from the property and you can look out at Robben Island from there.

All the beautiful rooms lead out onto terraces and the pool deck where you can entertain your friends.

There are not one but two kitchens, a bar, media room, pay room, family room and two studies along with a two-roomed guest apartment. Plus you get a garage for 4 cars.
