Congrats on winning the lottery, and making your first purchase this gem in the heart of the Winelands.
We often feature properties that cost a fortune, but don’t really deliver on the price tag, but this time around you’ll find your R83 million well spent.
I mean, it’s a staggering amount of money and we’re silly for even having a look, but Mondays are awful so allow us a few minutes of escapism.
The listing, on Sotheby’s, comes with this description:
