Magnificent 5 Bedroom Mansion, La Lucia

In2assets will be offering two magnificent mansions in Umhlanga Rocks and La Lucia at their last auction of the year. The live auction, in compliance with Covid-19 regulations, combined with online bidding, is on December 9 at 11am, at The Durban Country Club and will offer 22 properties.


19 Burnham Drive, located in Lower La Lucia offers a unique opportunity to bid for a residential property in this exclusive node on an urgent basis. The property is being offered on a default basis – a rare offering for a property of this calibre. The property was originally developed by a high-profile developer and enjoys a plethora of imported and designer features. The home boasts five en-suite bedrooms, a large kitchen, a study, three reception areas, and multiple entertainment areas. The kitchen is fully fitted and also extends into a scullery. Four of the bedrooms are on the upper floor and three lead onto a large balcony with sea views. The downstairs bedroom is stand-alone offering a private option for guests or older children – the unit has its own lounge and courtyard.
The property also boasts a triple garage, staff accommodation, a 32 KVA automatic generator, and a JOJO tank and filtration system which filters rainwater back through the house reducing consumption costs .
Security features include a guard house at the entrance to the property with ablutions, secure storage rooms, and bulletproof glass. The home is surrounded by electric fencing and has an alarm system.
“This magnificent double-story mansion is situated within the prime area of lower La Lucia, at 19 Burnham Drive. Burnham Drive is well sought after as one of the most desired addresses in both La Lucia and Umhlanga.
“This home has the essence of luxury and sophistication with high-end quality features throughout. Designer features include the dining room, which has a beautiful mirrored ceiling and classical Italian tiles; a solid mahogany-clad study, designed by the Coppela brothers; a resort-style pool and a koi pond set in a manicured garden,” says Hearn.
The other large mansion on offer is a modern family home in upmarket Herwood Park, Umhlanga which has five bedrooms, two with balconies with sea views, and three bathrooms. The double-volume entrance hall, with a chandelier, leads to a fully fitted study.
This home is situated on a large stand and comprises a sunken lounge, dining area, and family room which all flow to an entertainment area with a pool and braai.
The kitchen, with solid wood, fitted cupboards, and granite tops has a centre island and an adjoining scullery.
A separate, self-contained guest suite on the ground floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom. It has its own patio overlooking the pool area.
There is staff accommodation in a separate building from the house.
The property has a triple automated garage, is fully fenced, has an automated gate, and is monitored by an alarm system.
“This property boasts an ideal location close to the beach and within the heart of the upper-class residential node in Umhlanga Rocks. This prime position allows for easy access to the retail, commercial and social offerings of Umhlanga.
“This luxury family home is perfect for entertaining, with exquisite views of Umhlanga and the Indian Ocean,” says Luke Hearn who is handling the sale.
