  • The house, in the De Zalze Winelands Golf Estate, is on the market for R6.2m.

  • According to estate agents RE/MAX, the house boasts four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living areas, a pool and two garages.

  • RE/MAX’s Deon de Swardt told Netwerk24 that a verbal offer had already been made on the property.

  • An axe was used to kill owners of the property, Martin van Breda and his wife Teresa, and their 22-year-old son Rudi. The younger siblings, 16-year-old Marli and Henri, 20, survived the attack.

  • Marli was left with a severed jugular and a severe head wound, while Henri was left with only scratches and bruises.

  • Marli van Breda and her brother Henri are the main beneficiaries of an estate valued at about R200m.

  • It has been said that it is unlikely that Marli will remember the incident. Marli and Henri have not seen each other since the attack.
