JOHANNESBURG – Gauteng Premier David Makhura’s official residence in Bryanston, Sandton, is going under the hammer.
The mansion was bought in 2004 for R11.5 million but further renovations costing an additional R4 million were made.
The house will be auctioned for a starting price of R9 million.
The premier’s residence is located on Eccleston Crescent, Bryanston, which according to Propstats & Lightstone, is among the top 22 wealthiest streets in the country, where homes sell for an average R20 million.
Makhura decided not to stay at the property upon his appointment as premier.
The residence is part of a public auction that will see the sale of over 400 state properties which are no longer in use by the Gauteng government for strategic purposes.
Tirhani Auctioneers have been appointed to conduct the auctions.
