Cape Town and the Western Cape as a whole is known for having some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of South Africa. From stunning beaches to mountains that seem to touch the sky, we have it all! The Western Cape is also home to some of the most extravagant homes in the entire country.
To shed light on these properties, we’ve gathered a list of some of the most beautiful (and of course expensive) homes dotted around the province.
1- Luxury Clifton Penthouse On The Beach: R120,000,000
Where better to start off this list than in the picturesque setting of Camps Bay, otherwise known as Cape Town’s mini-Miami. Listed under Seeff Properties, this penthouse is one of a select few that are located on Moses Beach. The property features 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a chef-worthy kitchen fitted with top-of-the-line appliances, a wine cellar and tasting room.
But wait, there’s more. It also features 550 square metres of internal space and 225 square metres of external space with 24-hour security, and let’s not forget about the fact that the apartment offers direct beach access to one of the most private beaches in the world!
2-Luxury Villa in Fresnaye– R120,000,000
Fresnaye is one of Cape Town’s most affluent suburbs, located between Signal Hill and Sea Point and just a few kilometres away from Cape Town’s Central Business District, which makes it the perfect area to build your dream home. Luckily for you, the job of actually constructing the home is already done, all you have to do is to cough up a cool R120,000,000 to make it your own.
Also at Seeff Properties, this villa was designed by renowned architect, Marvin Far, and features 9 bedrooms, 9.5 bathrooms, multiple formal and informal living areas and of course a dramatic dine-in wine cellar that seats up to 20 people.

3- Stellenbosch Farm– R58,000,000
What’s better than owning your very own home? How about owning your very own farm. That’s right, for a mere R58,000,000 you could be the new owner of this four-bedroom, two-bathroom Farmstead in the heart of Stellenbosch. Listed under Rawson properties, this farm features its very own commercial vineyards that produce the patented “No Suplhar Added” wines. It also features two Garages, two parking spaces, and a pool for those hot summer days.
Buildings on the farm include the main homestead, a manager’s house, a garden flat, a shed and wine cellar with an office, and an adjacent wine tasting room and sales front. Sufficient water is available on the property thanks to a borehole, a dam, Theewaterskloof scheme water and municipal water.
4- 13 Bedroom Mansion in Milnerton– R49,500,000
If you thought owning a home with more than four bedrooms was overkill, you haven’t seen anything yet. This 13-bedroom mansion has more space then you’ll ever need. Once again listed under Rawson properties, this mansion is located in the idyllic Sunset Beach area and features unrivalled views of Cape Town, Robben Island and the magnificent Sunset Beach itself.
In terms of what you can expect from the house itself, the property features 13-bedrooms with 14-bathrooms, study, gym, laundry room, two garages with up to 10 parking spaces, balcony, and of course braai facilities.
There is also a dedicated full “surf” room for the guests to store kiting and boarding equipment after a long day out in the water.
5- Five Bedroom House in the Hills– R87,500,000
If 13 bedrooms are a bit more than you can handle, then this more modest but extravagant five-bedroom house in Bantry Bay should be right up your street. Listed under Pam Golding for a cool R87,500,000, the house is located on the green belt in the wind-protected suburb of Bantry Bay, so you don’t have to worry about any of your furnishings blowing off into the sunset.
Pam Golding describes the property as, “An architectural statement designed by award-winning architects,” and it’s easy to see why. The spacious playrooms and entertainment areas flow to a level lawn and pool, while the formal and informal living areas flow seamlessly to the cantilevered decks and patios.
As for the home itself, it features a studio, office, staff suites, and a double garage with secure multiple off-street parking spots. There is also an entrance hall, open plan dining room, family/TV room, and a kitchen fit to host any five-star chef.
