I mean, that’s what you’re going to be doing for a lot of your time. That, and traditional garden cricket (tip and run is the only option), and pool cricket. And drinking Pimms. Why? Because you’ll be wanting to spend time with your lawn, which is more lush than the average mink coat.
This stunning abode perched on the Atlantic Seaboard’s Hely Hutchinson Avenue is doing a fine impression of a top-level Constantia home. A very fine impression indeed. And you can get that very fine impression for just under 13 bar, with staff quarters.
16 and a half bar is what you’ll be putting on the table for the pleasure of a place on the Atlantic Seaboard that has as many parking spaces as it does bathrooms – and it has a lot of bathrooms. That’s not all it’s rolling with. We think the stand alone gym will be your favourite…
Sure, Bishopscourt’s stodgy reputation is probably deserved. But for almost 40 bar, you’re dealing strictly with glass, light, beechwood, and more glass.
Grade-I listed Caverswall Castle, near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, is on the market for R53 million, which is the equivalent price of a a double parking garage on Nettleton Road.

Look, if you’re going to isolate yourself from the City Bowl behind one of the worst morning commutes in the world, you need to get a lot of bang for your buck. In that sense, this is a nuclear bomb. In fact, it’s so nice, you won’t even want to leave your pad. How many of you have considered a “braai room”? Start considering it.
Knysna is a thoroughly underrated area. Sure, the occasional serial killer lurks on the wooded periphery, but it’s nothing you can’t handle if you avoid the local News Cafe. The very wealthy know what’s up. As the the owner of this R28 million eco-mansion in Pezula Golf Estate, you would definitely be knowing what was up.
Oh snap! If five garages, 20 parking spaces, six bedrooms, and servant’s quarters in a colonial style set in a tropical climate is what you’ve been looking for, please advise your personal banker to prepare R16 million for direct transfer – the staff are waiting for you in Musgrave, Durban. Here’s more, from Sotheby’s: Spacious and [...]

There’s something rather special about necking a cold one from the cool comfort of a rooftop pool. Opportunities to do so are few and far between, often limited to hotel stays.

When you buy a house in Constantia for R32 million, you expect certain things, like a minimum of six bedrooms, a private study with a stealthy exit to the garden for garden whiskey drinking, and separate quarters for the live-in staff. Things like grass tennis courts, however – well those are a nice touch. And they could be yours to touch.
A shade under 10 bar is what you can expect to pay for an estate sized property in the Cape. Madness? No, my friend.

Details are inside, friend.
If you aren’t currently living in a house with four double volume storeys of glass walls, that’s understandable. If you aren’t currently living in a house with a combo panorama sea and mountain view, we get that. But if you don’t do something about this multi-level glass frontage designer house on the beach with uninterrupted combo panorama sea and mountain view, we’re going to have words.
Have you seen this stunner in Stellenbosch? You get your own vineyard, and your own olive grove without the massive ball-ache of maintaining a Distelle-level vine-producing farm. Just think of the kind of person you get to be when you own this place. Feel free to dabble in making your own boutique wine, take a jar of olives to your mates house when you visit. You’ll basically be the most refined person you know. Jislaaik, that’s lekker.
Yep. Which means that you have exactly zero properties obstructing your view of the coastal fynbos, the ocean, and the beasts therein. Added bonus if your surname is Jones, because people will most definitely be attempting to keep up with you if you own this place.

Knysna – we all know it’s pretty. At least, we hear so. This week’s newest edition to the House Of The Week has burst through the front door and wrestled our eyeballs and perceptions into submission. Just take a gander at that gallery. Did you notice the panaromic veranda and the almost 360 degree view of the Outeniqua Mountains? Of course you did. For R32 million, you make sure you notice the details.
You might not have heard of Balie Bay. It’s a tiny curve in the coast of Camps Bay, and it happens to be bordered by a handful of stunning properties. And you can count this badboy as part of the club. Billed as “sheer 5-star luxury”, this R29 million, four-bedroomed property is basically an elaborate diving board for the ocean – which is what you’ll be calling your pool from now on.
Welcome to the leafy Durban district of Kloof. Kloof happens to be perched on the edge of Kloof Gorge, which translates to “Gorge Gorge”. That’s because Durban is populated by English people who don’t really understand the Afrikaans names for things, leading to these kinds of cock-ups. What they have nailed, however, is stunning architecture.
No man. No man, come now. Have you seen this place? You need to see this place. Have you seen it? Have you seen the beach? You can spit on it from your lounge. Have you seen how white it is? It’s so white. If you’re worried about the feasibility of living in an entirely white home, sssh. If you have the money to buy this place, you have the money to have a dedicated surface integrity maintenance technician on 24 hour standby.
Look, it’s been a while since we came across a place this special. Elevators, four floors and five levels, a fully integrated iTunes home entertainment system, a fully-besmegged kitchen – and then you forget about all of that, and smash an offer down right there and then. Because you just turned your head to look at the patio, and suddenly it occurs to you that whoever owns this house, owns the horizon.

I’m not sure if you noticed this morning as you lolled about your satin sheets waiting for your servant-lover to bring you an espresso and a cornetto, but the sun is rising earlier of late. One might say that Spring is definitely sprung, which means one thing: you’re running out of time to find your summer residence. Aren’t you so lucky then that we took the time to find you a facemelting beach front villa for a nippy R29 million.
If you’re living in a luxury apartment that you can control in entirety via the app on your iPhone or iPad, you should stop for a second and recognise that your life is pretty frigging sweet right now. Hell, you could control the house on the app from your restaurant-grade chef’s kitchen, or the shallow end of your heated rim pool overlooking the radlantic, or from the jacuzzi, or from in front of the fire place, or from…
If you’re going to sale across the ocean of life without a worry in the world, you need a very, very big ship. This place is so big it has a separate Aksa generator that keeps a battery backup system fully charged so that this home can run independently of any municipal services if necessary. Oh, and we forgot to mention – it has direct access to the beach. Just like a tiny cottage.
Here’s more, from James Edition. Bold signature home, simplistic architectural work of art combined with solid wood, steel & glass. Perfect for the claustrophobic perfectionist. Spread over four levels with breathtaking views. The dominant ocean views are exacerbated by massive window scapes and rap-a-round wooden decks. A sanctuary where all have their own private space, each [...]
