At an asking price of R170 million this is now the most expensive home listed in South Africa, say estate agents RE/MAX Living: a two-level apartment in a building nestled into the side of a cliff above a Clifton beach.

It comes with five bedrooms, as long as you are willing to sacrifice the gym, parking for seven cars, direct access to the beach, and security shutters that will seal it up at the touch of a button.

If that sounds good, just keep in mind that it will cost you some R90,000 per month, after the purchase price, to pay for the building levy and the rates and taxes on your seaside home.

The apartment is the Eventide building, completed by design firm SAOTA in 2009.


The front-of-house kitchen is made for entertainment...

... but there is a rather more serious, entirely separate, chef's kitchen too.

The living spaces flow out onto balconies, through stacking doors that fold to invisibility, with glass balustrades barely registering before the eye hits the ocean.

There's a communal pool in the building, should you find the view from yours too distracting.

The separate plunge pool, in an elevated nook, is heated.

The glass-enclosed wine room is temperature controlled.

The gym, currently crammed with equipment, has its own bathroom and built-in cupboards, so could be converted into a fifth bedroom, the agents say.

The bedrooms tend towards light-filled and spacious...


... and the marble-heavy bathrooms aren't exactly cramped either.


There is a child-friendly with its own uninterrupted view across the ocean.
