The infamous Gupta family’s abandoned seven-bedroom, 8105m2 mansion in Constantia in Cape Town has a new owner after standing empty for several years.

“I think R20 million for that property is actually a very good price for the middle of Constantia.”

A video shared by Hardie Property shows the mansion missing massive portions of the thatch roof, and a sickly green swimming pool.
