The first few months of lockdown was a trying period that highlighted the shortcomings of any home. Yet, for a lucky few within the luxury housing market, spending months confined within the home could be described as nothing short of a blissful experience – especially within the homes that overlook some of South Africa’s most scenic landscapes.

“The South African real estate market is one of the most affordable markets for luxury real estate investors. While the luxury market starts anywhere from around $7 million in other parts of the world, here in South Africa, luxury homes start at just over R5 million in some parts of the country,” explains Regional Director and CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, Adrian Goslett.  

To give luxury buyers a taste of what the local luxury property market has to offer, below are two of the most expensive listings listed on The RE/MAX Collection website:

Bantry Bay, Western Cape (140 Million ZAR / 8.4 Million USD)
Quarantine living would be a dream in this five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom mansion. Fitted with luxurious finishes, this stylish home offers uninterrupted ocean vistas from the edge of the rim-flow pool that overlooks one of Africa's most exclusive locations: Bantry Bay. Equipped with the latest technology, security and state-of-the-art sound systems, this home is built for the buyer who has an appetite for the finer things in life. Enjoy indoor/outdoor living from all the living room areas as well as the bedrooms.
