We’ve all had to deal with reality a great deal over the past few weeks. If, like us, you have occasionally drifted from working-from-home to home-hunting-from-home during the lockdown we’re here for you.

Allow us to temporarily take you out of the world of hectic houses, cramped apartment living and tense supermarket trips to one where you can picture life lived to its fullest. This week, as part of a new regular feature, we are going to show you the best of the property portals we cover. This week we invite you to indulge in some escapism in South Africa…

First this jewel of a property located in the Eastern province of KwaZulu Natal we found on property24. This four bedroom residence comes with an infinity pool and a 3 car garage!

Staying on the east coast, we couldn’t move on without inviting you to speculate how much better your self isolation might be going with this sea view.

Dream House 3

 

If suburban living is more your scene, how about this palatial residence on the outskirts of Johannesburg. It has its own tennis court and water features!

Maybe South Africa conjures images of wildlife and safaris for you. If so, this hunting farm near the Botswana border should spark the imagination.

Dream House 5

 

How about city life in down-town Cape Town. Table Mountain from the kitchen window and the marina view from the balcony. Lovely!
