WILL YOU BUY THIS STELLENBOSCH MEGA-MANSION FOR R70 MILLION?
If you want a property in the Winelands, it doesn’t get better or more luxurious than this five-bedroom mansion in Stellenbosch.
Hidden in an exclusive enclave in the De Zalze Winelands Golf Estate in Stellenbosch, the home is situated on the banks of the Blouwklip River.
What makes this property even more exclusive is the fact that it has complete privacy from neighbours and the surrounding golf course, Sotheby’s International Realty says.
The soft hues of oak and muted natural tones used create a tranquil environment, giving the home a luxurious hotel-like atmosphere.
ENTERTAINMENT MECCA OF THE WINELANDS
And, yes, no house in the Winelands is complete without multiple entertainment areas. And this mega-mansion is truly an entertainer’s dream.
Cavity doors open from the entire living area to the expansive patio, complete with a feature rim-flow pool, fire pit, and barbecue facilities.
The various living rooms open up to luscious gardens, while the spacious kitchen is grand enough to impress even the toughest chef. It is fully equipped with Gaggenau and Miele integrated appliances, a Stefano Ferrara pizza oven, and an indoor barbecue.
One of the mansion’s most exquisite features is the underground wine room and cinema area.
Sitting adjacent to the swimming pool, the room with its glass wall is any wine connoisseur’s dream, while the cinema area is perfect for cold winter nights.
There is also a large gymnasium, cloakroom, server room, and underground parking, big enough to fit six cars.
Hidden in the garage area, the mansion also has a large Herz heat pump, storage tank, borehole, and water filtration system. The home also boasts central air conditioning throughout it cool in summer and water-based underfloor heating to keep it snug in winter.
THE MULTI-LEVEL STELLENBOSCH HOME IS ON ANOTHER LEVEL
The home is created over three levels, from the underground parking level to the private bedroom area. The latter can be accessed by a private elevator and the grand staircase.
The five luxury bedroom suites are split between two levels, and the master suite, with its custom-fitted dressing room and marble en-suite bathroom, is the perfect luxury escape. The suite also has its own private fitted study.
RECENT INTEREST HIKE: THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
Last Thursday, the South African Reserve Bank’s (SARB) Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) voted to hike interest rates by 50 basis points.
That decision took the country’s repurchase rate to 8.25% while the prime lending rate rose to 11.75%.
On a home loan of R1 million at the new prime rate (11.75%), the latest hike will increase payments by R344 a month, while an R2 million bond outstanding now costs R689 more each month.
