This home is the most expensive in South Africa, and it’s right here in Cape Town. But there's been news that it was recently sold to a wealthy family.

It’s clear that the property listing for the Camps Bay mansion is not targeted for South Africans as it is listed in dollars – but even so, $35 million is nothing to sneeze over even when you’re a wealthy Texan oil tycoon who was born in Cape Town and had humble beginnings.
