Must-see: South African homes for our favourite 'Game of Thrones' characters

07 May 2019

From Arya to The Hound, Cersei, Daenerys and more, we have found the perfect South African homes for the Game of Thrones characters we love and loathe. In no particular order (and with no spoilers for GOT season 8), take a peek…

A classic castle for John Snow in Kyalami for R11.5 million

John Snow puts people before titles, and even though he looks good while doing it, he is definitely a substance over style kind of guy. But that doesn’t mean he can’t have a stylish castle of his own.

A blend of white and earthy tones complemented by wood and stone finishes, we believe this beautifully understated castle in Kyalami, Midrand, is the perfect place for John Snow to unwind after a long day of guarding the realms of men - for this night and all the nights to come.

A regal retreat for Daenerys Targaryen in Kenton on Sea for R60 million

Even the queen to rule them all (maybe) needs quiet time to reflect and replenish, and we believe this serene lodge in Kenton On Sea in the Eastern Cape ticks all the boxes for the Mother of Dragons - quiet yet exquisite style, with plenty of fresh water and game for hungry dragons.

Perched above a river and surrounded by lush vegetation, the luxurious semi-tented lodge harkens back to Daenerys’ days as a Khaleesi, and is the epitome of tranquil elegance - the perfect contrast to her (possible) seat of power in the Red Keep.

Stature and grace for Sansa Stark in Centurion for R22 million

The new Lady of Winterfell has undergone quite the transformation from the naïve (to the point of utter frustration) young girl we were first introduced to.

Today Sansa Stark can take command, make tough decisions and confidently host bannermen - and look regal while doing it. Impressive yet beautiful, we believe this home in Blair Atholl Golf Estate in Centurion perfectly embodies the blend of strength and grace that Sansa is today.

The quiet life for Tyrion Lannister in Robertson for R12.5 million

When Tyrion Lannister can finally sit back and indulge in everything he loves (women, wine and books), we believe he will be pleased by this unique and distinctive gentleman’s estate in Robertson in the Cape Winelands.

After all that he has been through, we are sure Tyrion just wants to partake in the simple life - surrounded by his own vineyards. Not skimping on style, the home has large windows bringing in the light and boasting beautiful views, a wine cellar and serene spaces for unwinding alone or with company…

A private getaway for Varys in Peddie for R60 million

Elevated above endless sea, river and forest vistas, this 268ha farm in Peddie in the Eastern Cape, offers all the privacy Varys could need when he needs a break from court politics.

Pulling strings and manoeuvring all the players into the right position is a tiring game, and with all his secrets, only absolute privacy will do for Varys. Unique, just like him, this characterful home’s elevated vantage point is also the perfect perch for Little Birds.

Intriguing design for Arya Stark in Bryanston for R10.95 million

With many hidden depths, fan favourite Arya Stark is fierce and cunning, and you won’t see her coming. That’s why we think she will love this designer home in Bryanston, Sandton. Ever practical, Arya is not concerned with unnecessary trimmings, and like her, the home has unexpected twists and turns - all elegant and understated.

Wealth on display for Cersei Lannister in Fresnaye for R150 million

According to Cersei Lannister, she is the hostess with the mostest, and she wants everyone to know it. She demands the best money can buy (even if it’s on the Iron Bank’s account), and that’s why this home in Fresnaye is the one for her. In a prime position, the home’s hefty price tag offers a ruthless queen a prime address - with all the bells and whistles.

Harmony with nature for Bran Stark in Constantia for R35 million

The Three-Eyed Raven may not be overly concerned with earthly matters, but this nature lover’s haven in Constantia, Cape Town, is more than a home, it’s a serene sanctuary. The single-level home is wheelchair-friendly, and the lush surrounds are brought inside through the extensive use of glass. Even better, there are wheelchair-friendly walkways to the numerous outdoor areas, making it easy for Bran to commune with nature.

Quiet strength for Brienne of Tarth in Hyde Park for R24.5 million

A lady of duty and honour, Brienne of Tarth exudes a quiet strength - underpinned by her skills with a blade. Brienne is not about flair and flourishes, she is about getting the job done. Just like Brienne, this home in Hyde Park looks fortress-like from the outside, and offers quiet and graceful beauty on the inside - making it the perfect match for her.

Function meets style for Jaime Lannister in Pretoria for R8.8 million

Another character with many layers, Jaime Lannister lacked for nothing while growing up. However, after all that he’s been through, we think he’d prefer a more toned down (yet still stylish) home to call his own. The perfect marriage of function and style and masculinity and charm, we believe this industrial-style home in Boardwalk Meander, Pretoria, with its minimalistic approach to interior design and peaceful courtyard-style garden perfectly fits the bill.

Happy family living for Sam Tarly in Midrand for R20 million

Always kind and caring, bookworm Sam Tarly has followed a very winding road to his current role as family man and trusted advisor to many. Warm, welcoming and unassuming, we feel this beautiful home in Blue Hills Country Estate in Midrand is the perfect place for Sam and Gilly to raise a family and make happy memories. There are also plenty of bookshelves to fill up…

Life far from the madding crowd for The Hound in Clarens for R11.9 million

We all know that Sandor Clegane hates people indiscriminately (except maybe for one or two particular persons), so we think he will love (or at least tolerate) this home perched above endless (and empty) vistas in Clarens in the Free State. The Hound can have his privacy, and see enemies approach from far away - hopefully he can also finally find peace.

A home worthy of roses for Margaery Tyrell in Constantia for R44.9 million

Not to be underestimated, Margaery Tyrell is beautiful, calculating and very shrewd - how else did she manage to marry three kings? From the green and fertile lands of the Reach, this Highgarden rose has very sharp thorns, but prefers charm rather than combat, which is why we think this absolutely gorgeous and gracious home in Constantia, Cape Town, is the one for her.

Space for Khal Drogo’s khalasar in Thabazimbi

Oh, Khal Drogo, we miss you. The epitome of virility and strength, Khal Drogo fearlessly led his khalasar to victory time and time again. On 4 66ha of prime bushveld, this hunting lodge in Dwaalboom, Thabazimbi, offers plenty of opportunities for the khalasar and khal to prove their prowess, as well as expansive entertainment areas.

Honourable (or dishonourable) mentions

Tranquil waterside living for the Reed siblings in Hartbeespoort for R14.9 million

Surrounded by water, we believe this home in K’shane in Hartbeespoort, North West, will remind Jojen and Meera Reed of Greywater Watch in the Neck, their swampland home.

A seaside fortress for the Greyjoy siblings in Knysna for R20.5 million

We thought this stately fortress-like abode in Pezula Private Estate, Knysna, would be a nice contrast to the harsh and bleak islands Theon and Yara Greyjoy hail from, yet still close enough to the ocean for them to feel at home.

Stately comfort for Robert Baratheon in Johannesburg for R28 million

Robert Baratheon enjoyed the good life, and how he indulged in his lust for it. We believe this home in Westcliff, Johannesburg, is the perfect reflection of the late king - charming, sturdy, characterful and impressive, with plenty of opulent touches.

Beautiful coastal living for Grey Worm and Missandei in Camps Bay for R38.5 million

When Grey Worm and Missandei one day feel they have fulfilled their duty to Daenerys and are finally able to find their home by the ocean, we are sure they will love this gorgeous home in Camps Bay - life can be beautiful.

A spectacular vantage point for Little Finger in Camps Bay for R77.5 million

Peter Baelish has worked very hard for his position and money (or at least his girls and boys have), and he is not shy to show it. We are pretty sure he would enjoy this marvellously modern Camps Bay home perched high with soaring views and state-of-the-art everything

A statement in style for Tywin Lannister in Ballito for R70 million

The ultimate utilitarian, Tywin Lannister is willing to be ruthless to protect his family’s name and reputation. No one knows the value of keeping up appearances better than Tywin, which is why this imposing yet decadent home in Zimbali Coastal Resort and Estate is the perfect fit for him - the home makes a lasting impression, just like the man himself.

Grand opulence for Olenna Tyrell in Constantia

The grandma with plenty of bite, Lady Olenna always puts her best foot forward - nothing but the best is good enough for the Tyrell matriarch. This is why we think she will approve of this utterly stylish and characterful home in Constantia, Cape Town.

Understated elegance for the Sand Snakes in Hectorspruit for R14.3 million

Unbowed, unbent, unbroken, the Sand Snakes of Dorne are strong, independent, resourceful and ruthless, and are not to be trifled with. We believe these ladies will love the understated yet undeniable beauty and elegance of this home in Mjejane Game Reserve in Hectorspruit in its bushveld setting reminiscent of their desert home.

A family escape for Catelyn Stark in Machadodorp for R14.375 million

If Catelyn Stark could turn back the clock, there is no doubt that she would whisk all her children away from the soon-to-unfold wars and chaos in Westeros. This farm in Machadodorp, Mpumalanga, would be her ideal escape, offering plenty of privacy and harkening back to her Tully childhood in Riverrun in the green and fertile Riverlands.

Seaside character for Davos Seaworthy in Bantry Bay for R35 million

As a well-travelled pirate, the Onion Knight is sure to appreciate the unique design and character this Bantry Bay home has to offer. Understated yet extravagant at the same, the home overlooks the ocean and beautiful surrounds, and is the perfect place for the old seafarer to find his peace.

Ramsey Bolton and Joffrey Baratheon (Lannister)

We considered looking for homes for Ramsey Bolton and Joffrey Baratheon (Lannister), but we think they really belong where they are at the moment.
