Some residential houses in Saxonwold were believed to be worth around R3 million and above. Others went up to R20 million.
The property was believed to be the same house from which Tshepiso Magashule, the son of the African National Congress secretary general Ace Magashule, was forcefully removed as previously reported by the Mail & Guardian.
This was believed to be the first of five homes that would go under the hammer in the area owned by the controversial family.
The building, which housed the Guptas TV studios and offices for the now-defunct _New Age _newspaper, also went under the hummer last year.
