It’s a well-known fact that Cape Town house prices are sky high and can be a little ridiculous compared to the rest of the country.

But when you’re talking about mansions over the R50 million mark, what exactly do you get?

We compared two homes on Property24 – one in the exclusive suburb of Constantia and the other in the hills of Sandton – that both cost R80 million and this is what they’ll both get you:
