Hout Bay castle sells for R23m

Sep 17 2012 10:20

Johannesburg - A picturesque six-storey castle in Karbonkelberg, on the outskirts of Hout Bay has been sold to a Russian businessman for R23m.

The castle has 13 en-suite bedrooms, a library and a bar is situated high up against the mountain, overlooking Hout Bay beach.

It is only accessible by private road and helicopter and is situated on 8 500m² of land, which boasts a natural waterfall and swimming pool.

The castle was previously run as a guesthouse until it was snapped up by its Russian owner. "It was love at first sight for the owner," Sotheby’s International Realty’s Nina Smith is quoted as saying by MoneyWeb.

The castle was originally built by South African businessman Reynier Fritz in 1986. The building was meant to replicate the Schloss Lichtenstein castle in southern Germany.

The sale includes all the building's furniture.
