South Africa’s most expensive home has been put up for sale.
Priced at 25 million euros, it’s said that is the most expensive property to be put on the market in South Africa. Completed in 2011, the ostentatious Enigma Mansion – in wind-free The Glen, a sheltered wealthy enclave on Cape Town’s sought-after Atlantic seaboard popular with European homeowners – has hosted royalty, celebrities, and commercial, film and TV shoots, including American apocalyptic supernatural action series, Dominion.
The property itself is a three-storey 1,586m² residence while a separate 264m² two-bedroom guest house and one-bedroom-suite cottage nestle into the grounds. Built in the style of a grand residence from a bygone era, offering nostalgia and elegance, it is only comparable to a handful of properties found in perhaps the South of France or on Long Island’s Gold Coast.
Glynn Evans, Managing Director of selling agent Ibiza Sotheby’s International Realty, comments: “We’re already marketing a six-bedroom six-million-euro country hideaway in Ibiza on behalf of this German billionaire owner, and he’s recently added Enigma Mansion to our sales portfolio. While the two homes share superlative qualities and styling, and target a similar would-be buyer, it’s the South African home that is notorious for its unapologetic opulent exhibitionist styling and the roll call of VIPs its hosted. Given the prime coastal location and the money that’s been spent on technology, interior décor and landscaping, the 25-million-euro valuation could almost be higher.”
