Compared to the 2023 list, Sea Point has moved up a spot, while Val de Vie and Fresnye (both in the Western Cape) dropped from their fourth and fifth spots, respectively.

It's no shock that the Western Cape features twice, given that it is home to some of the most extravagant houses including the most expensive house in SA.

Although the house, named Casablanca is not located in Sunningdale or Sea Point, one can understand why these locations are so sought-after.
