An elderly South African couple has put their burglar-proof house on the market for a cool $1.6 million. The Y-shaped white home located in an exclusive community at the base of Cape Town's Table Mountain claims to be the safest in the country, if not the continent.
The 2-story burglar-proof house rises from a base column 50 feet above the ground. The base is a secure garage that sits atop a foundation dug 20 feet into the ground below.
