Spotlight on South Africa’s most expensive homes: Listing Cape Town (S2) a must-watch

Cape Town was recently dubbed the second-best city globally to live and visit, according to Time Out’s survey of 50 cities. So it’s no surprise that the Mother City, as it’s fondly known, prides itself as home to the most opulent and expensive properties you can find in South Africa.

To showcase the region’s most luxurious lifestyles, BBC Lifestyle has announced season two premiere of its hit property-themed reality TV show Listing Cape Town‘ on Wednesday, April 3 at 8pm on DStv channel 174.

In the show, viewers get an inside look into the regional’s most opulent homes, “including the Cape Winelands and Bishopscourt area, as well as the much-anticipated glimpse into Cape Town’s exquisite Millionaire’s Mile properties,” reads a statement from the show’s publicity team.

Cape Town’s luxury residential market has distinguished itself in the global real estate industry with an annual growth of 12.3%, outpacing global trends and drawing a wave of local and international interest.

On what viewers can expect from the new season, producers say the ten new episodes will showcase jaw-dropping properties, valued up to an astonishing R280 million.

Guided tour of Cape Town’s architectural legacy

‘Listing Cape Town‘ S2 will pay homage to architectural legacy of Herbert Baker, the late British architect who designed many prominent buildings in South Africa, including the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

Several of Beker’s iconic homes, nestled among an array of properties, including a R150 million Franschhoek wine farm currently on the market, will be on the show. The season will also delve into Bishopscourt, a small but wealthy residential suburb in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town in the Western Cape.

A haven for lesser-known millionaire and billionaire, Bishopscourt attracts numerous foreign and local buyers, especially those looking to relocate from Johannesburg and Durban.

Not only this, viewers can expect a rich variety of ocean-view apartments, city-style living, suburban homes, and Cape Wineland’s properties. There’s also a listing on one of Africa’s most valuable streets, Nettleton Road, the most expensive road in Africa, known for ultra-luxurious properties and breath-taking views, where a property can come with a rental cost of R150,000 or more – just for a day. With homes going for a whopping R100 million and more, not long ago, a plot of land – handled by Dogon Group Properties – was the market for R175 million.
