Not sure if you caught the recent press about one of the late Brett Kebble‘s old properties going under the hammer. The one in Bishopscourt . They had some pics in the paper, but none of the inside of the house. I thought I’d get those for you.
Check out the outside shots and press release first:

Fair Seate, considered one of the country’s most prestigious and exclusive residences, will once again go under the Alliance Group gavel in September. This magnificent property in Bishop’s Court, Cape Town has frequently changed hands between high profile and sometimes controversial figures including the late Brett Kebble who purchased it at an Alliance Group auction in 1999 and lived there with his wife Ingrid and four children until his murder in September 2005. The property was then sold to a prominent businessman in 2006.
The estate boasts extreme privacy and includes state of the art security which was upgraded after Kebble extensively renovated the homestead in 2001. The property is situated on over 6240m2 of the Western Cape’s most expensive land and includes landscaped gardens, a glass conservatory, cobbled walkways and an antique marble fountain imported from Italy.
The main house features a staggering 14 double bedrooms, 3 separate apartments, and modern bathrooms leading onto balconies overlooking the mountain. The main suite consists of “his & hers” bathrooms and dressing rooms, a billiard room, galley kitchen and a stairway which gives access to the music and cinema room overlooking a central atrium.
A separate building, which overlooks floodlit tennis courts and the outdoor pool and entertainment area, includes a squash court, gymnasium, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. There are a further three staff suites which feature their own living rooms.
The property was upgraded by Kebble to house his extensive vehicle and wine collections and offers indoor garaging for ten cars and an underground wine cellar with imported American oak wine racks and humidifiers.
Comments Rael Levitt: “This is the second time that this property has come under our gavels in a decade and continually draws attention from a number of high profile individuals. This is also the third Kebble mansion that we have sold since his murder. Fair Seat is ideal for those seeking an iconic home which exudes an aura of grandeur associated with a highly desirable luxurious lifestyle.’’
In addition to the property, the auctioneers will also auction off all the household contents, consisting of artwork, antiques & designer furniture. The contents will be auctioned off separately.
The auction takes place on the 4th of September 2009 at 11am on site.

Jeez, that’s pretty a pretty serious pad.
Check out the virtual tour here.
Apparently they’re expecting around the 30 bar mark. Rands.
Surely not as much as the ClockTower Building in Brooklyn , New York? They’re asking $25 million for that one – and it comes with a big clock!
Nothing that the $101 million jackpot can’t handle!
You have entered , right?
