Jawitz markets opulent Cape Town residence

Jawitz Properties has secured the hottest mandate in South Africa to date - for the most expensive, luxurious property to come on to the residential market.

This 7130m2 palatial residence, known as Enigma Mansion - which we featured before, situated in the most prestigious and prime residential area of Cape Town, between Clifton and Camps Bay, comes with a price tag of R300 million (€30 million/$36,5 million).

The property in its entirety takes up four erven, between three streets in the most sought out area of Camps Bay - The Glen – best known for being a luxurious, peaceful haven, sheltered from Cape Town’s well-known, ferocious wind. Just 50 metres from the base of Table Mountain Park and adjoining a nature reserve on two of its other boundaries, Enigma comprises 6000m2 of outdoor space including parks and gardens with attractive waterways and ponds.

“Despite its private and quiet location, the bustling restaurants and cafés along Camps Bay beach are just three minutes away, bringing convenience to this dream coastal lifestyle that Enigma Mansion epitomises,” says Francois Venter, Director of Jawitz Properties.

The main residence has three floors and stretches over 1586m2, with a 627m2 basement level, ground floor totalling 638m2, and first floor covering 321m2. A studio at the west bottom of the property has its own separate street access with living space of 264m2 spread over the ground and first floors, and there is a separate guest house on site with private street access comprising 250m2. The residence also offers an atelier, winter garden, sauna, gym, teahouse, massage temple, staff quarters, herb and vegetable garden as well as many terraces, with the highlight being an artistically-designed Olympic-sized swimming pool with marble inlays.
Enigma houses every possible luxury, from its state-of-the-art technology system with iPads controlling all the functions throughout the property, an 80m2 3D cinema, and an extensive selection of artwork from paintings and photographs, to sculptures and statues.

The décor surpasses 7-star quality and is an eclectic mix of Classic, French, Asian, Georgian Colonial, and Moroccan influences, with luxury fitted into every detail. Taking inspiration from the Louis XIV period and Hotel Costes in Paris, the interior features were chosen for their beauty and opulence, with no expense spared and include bespoke, imported wall fabrics, curtains, rugs, and antique fittings and finishes.

The property benefits from 24 hour armed response and 36 cameras monitoring the grounds at all times. There are electronic safes in each bedroom, as well as panic buttons, and a ‘panic room’ in the master suite. For extra peace of mind, there are 16 security guards that patrol the premises 24 hours a day.

With a glamorous history, Enigma Mansion has previously acted as accommodation for A-list celebrities, artists, CEOs of big corporations, royalty and other high net worth individuals, and has been used for photo shoots and as a movie location.

It took seven years to plan and build this dream property, with the aim of achieving the most unique collaboration of style and luxury into a stunning setting that boasts unrivalled beauty.
Enigma is unlike any other residence in South Africa and can only be compared to extravagant homes in the South of France, Beverley Hills or Long Island. Enigma Mansion defines an unsurpassed, luxurious lifestyle and is a home making history in the South African property market.
