Durban - Today’s Powerball Plus draw will take place at 9pm and the estimated jackpot is R87 million, meaning that you can actually buy the home of your dreams.
Of course, you need to buy a ticket, and have your numbers selected, but people all over the world become millionaires each week when their lucky numbers are drawn, so why can’t you too?
And if it is you tonight, you may want to consider this nine-bedroom home in Constantia Upper.
The R65m price tag does not include VAT, but with almost R90m at your disposal – should you win – that should not be a huge hurdle.
The property is reminiscent of bygone days, with the home set on 25 000 square metres of parkland that the agent, Alexa Horne of Dogon Group Properties, says offers a combination of rolling lawns, heated swimming pool, sun deck, prize winning rose garden, beautiful trees and shrubbery, and a small vineyard.
The vast yard leads to two-bedroom staff accommodation.
Inside the property there are five spacious entertainment areas consisting of a large entrance hall, lounge, separate dining room, family or TV room, and a study.
“The home has original Parquet flooring, fireplaces, bay windows with views to the magnificent garden, and of the Helderberg mountains. There is also a large guest cloakroom with waiting area, large kitchen with a caterer's work station, eating area, separate scullery and store area.”
Horne says the upstairs of the home offers “an enormous” main en-suite bedroom with a seating area, and a walk-in closet with loads of space. It has air-conditioning, and the added luxury of his-and-her bathrooms, and a patio with views to the Helderberg mountains.
On this level there are another two en-suite bedrooms, and a fourth bedroom that could also be used as a study.
But it does not stop there as the property also boasts a three-bedroom en-suite guest cottage that is separate from the main house, affording complete privacy for family or guests.
“Another separate cottage offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms with views to a magical garden with a pond and bridge.”
The property offers security consisting of an alarm, CCTV cameras, and beams.
