Marketed as South Africa's most expensive residence, a mansion in Camps Bay is on sale for $35-million; approximately R440-million.

The average price for homes on the same street sits at around R10.5-million, making the house's asking price way above usual.

Steven Delit, Property expert with Remax, spoke to CapeTalk presenter Kieno Kammies about the expensive piece of real estate.

With that price, one could have bought each of the 33 houses that were sold in the first half of the year and bought out all the food stock at a Woolworths store - to ensure you really host a good party.

According to Delit, the asking price for many properties is often inflated for 'public relations value'. He says the the City of Cape Town should evaluate the mansion to assess the property's real worth.
