At 31 Townsend Road in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, South Africa sits a mansion built for a Captain.
A mere $3,525,646 will buy a three story two module type home joined by a 50 foot lighthouse that offers a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. After dark when the home is bathed in blue and white lighting it is a sight to behold.
Recently listed on Chas Everett International Property Group’s website is a 26,000 square feet nautical styled mansion inspired by the Titanic.
Johannesburg, located in the eastern plateau region of Highveld, is the largest city in South Africa with a population of over four million and is among the fifty largest cities in the world.
The city has an impressive cultural center with museums, art galleries, libraries, theaters, and universities. Commonly known by residents as Joburg, the city claims Nelson Mandela as a native.
Townsend Road is in a very exclusive area including many of the most palatial homes and estates in Johannesburg.
All of the furniture and decor in the home was custom designed especially for the residence and is included in the purchase price. The spacious three-story living module includes five bedrooms with attached bathrooms containing deep Jacuzzi style baths and private balconies.
There is also a living room, a dining room that seats twelve with room for expansion, family room, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a large office with outwardly curved bookcases, recreation room, and a basement level wine cellar accessible by a spiral staircase. The décor is ultra-modern nautical with extensive use of glass, marble, stainless steel and water features.
All of the stairwell and balcony banisters are replicated exactly as one would have seen on a luxury liner. There are Chiluly inspired chandeliers and porthole-styled windows throughout the entire house.
Off the wine cellar, one can work out in a private fully equipped gym and then relax in a sauna or indoor Jacuzzi. There is a state of the art security system and intercom system to allow communication from one end of the house to the other.
The entertainment module includes a Titanic café with an attached fifty-two seat nightclub complete with stage, dance floor and rotating mirrored disco ball. Centrally located in the café is a 10 foot four-sided salt water aquarium positioned at eye level.
One can lunch in their own sushi bar and then retire to a gentleman’s cigar lounge to discuss current events and politics while enjoying a game of billiards.
Two surround sound equipped screening rooms with a popcorn and soft drink stand to ensure that all of the latest Hollywood movies are always available for viewing.
The outdoor patio has a large pizza oven, an outdoor Jacuzzi, and plenty of seating room. Three pools are available, one inside and two outside with the main pool featuring a water slide and waterfall, Business Tech reported.
The professionally landscaped .91 acre property has a small soccer field, a putt-putt golf range, a narrow, winding river with seating gazebos and several ponds.
A gangplank inspired bridge leads one over the river and into the nightclub door. A ten car garage insures that everyone has a place to park and separate quarters allow guests to retire to privacy. There are also on-site private quarters for hired help.
A unique home such as this will surely generate interest and probably won’t stay on the market very long. A person with the financial means and a love of luxury with a passenger ship feeling couldn’t go wrong with a home like this and would be advised to make an appointment to view the home as soon as possible.
