While Lolly Jackson’s house in Kloof Road has been sold and his other property at Hartbeespoort Dam is about to go on auction, another business tycoon has also got rid of his mansion after confirmation that Roger Kebble had sold his Bantry Bay home for R39-million last week.
It was apparently bought by an unnamed young man of 33 who wanted it as a holiday getaway.
The triple-storey home in Bantry Bay has four bedrooms, wrap-around balconies, an excellent wine cellar, a gym, bar, library and heated swimming pool.
Luxury fittings imported from Italy adorn the bathrooms. The home has automated temperature controls and lighting, piped music and an indoor lift – presumably because Roger Kebble had trouble with his knees and his heart in recent years.
Apparently the home was put on the market in July this year and had generated a lot of interest from local and overseas buyers before being sold to the young businessman.
It is set on the slopes of Lion’s Head and overlooks Bantry Bay and the city.
It is believed that 70-year-old Kebble and his wife intend to downscale as the mansion was getting too big for them to manage and maintain.
