Cool features of Shauwn Mkhize’s house

Shauwn Mkhize’s is undoubtedly one of the biggest celebrity houses in South Africa and honestly calling it a house is an understatement.

Here are all the cool executive features of the mansion.

The place is HUGE!

To begin with, the property is located on several acres of land. An aerial view of the house would make you think that you are looking at a King’s palace or even the statehouse.

After purchasing their house, the Mpisane family went on to purchase the adjoining properties and converted them to suit their tastes and needs.

A giant driveway connects the main gates to the house and we assume that it’s probably impractical to walk from the gate to Shauwn Mkhize’s front door.
