Among the highly desirable residential properties on offer is Lot 9, a five-bedroom, six-bathroom luxury mansion located in the exclusive Eagle Canyon Golf Estate in Johannesburg, one of the most sought-after golf residences in South Africa. With a cinema room, pool, jacuzzi, separate guest suite, staff accommodation and views over the fairway, the property is listed with a reserve price of R12.5 million (£671,000).
Also going under the digital hammer on 3rd July is Lot 14, an exclusive property located in upmarket Silver Lakes Golf Estate, Pretoria.
