A triple-volume Constantia mansion of “ambassadorial proportions” will be auctioned online by Rawson Auctions Western Cape on July 29 at noon. The 3 000m² dwelling is not complete, and Rawson says the discerning buyer will be able to give it their own stamp.

The property,on a 9 490m² plot with uninterrupted views across the vineyards towards Constantia Nek and the surrounding mountains, borders De Hel Nature Area with its riverine valley and indigenous forest. Tanya Jovanovski, regional franchisee for Rawson’s, says the home features an architectural style reminiscent of Italian villas.

“The five bedrooms, reception rooms and entertainment areas are exceptionally spacious with high ceilings and lots of natural light. The entrance hall, which leads to a huge lounge with a fireplace, is triple-volume and has an elegant double staircase. The house also has formal double-lounge areas with stacking doors; a main lounge with scenic views; dining room; study and a music room. The large kitchen has a scullery, laundry and pantry.”

All the bedrooms are en suite with underfloor heating. The main bedroom has a dressing room and a fireplace. The entertainment areas includes a smoking room, billiard room, indoor cinema, solarium, Jacuzzi, steam room, outdoor luxury entertainment court and gazebos.

Outbuildings include extensive staff accommodation; a guard house; double garage and a six-car garage; indoor and outdoor swimming pools; a tennis court and a courtyard with an attractive water feature.

“It’s difficult to describe the majesty of this property – it’s best to arrange a viewing to experience its scope and style. “The Constantia location is, of course, a major benefit but the biggest selling point is the size of this mansion.”
