Six years ago, on a random Sunday, Mpumi Mophatlane and her husband were driving down the street and decided to walk in to see a house that was being showcased. It was love at first sight. Today, they call this five-bedroom, double-storey house in Waterkloof, Pretoria, their home.
“We’d been searching for a home for the longest time, because our family was growing. We were outgrowing our current house, which was slightly smaller than this, at that time. We wanted more garden space and more rooms, and that one random Sunday that they were showcasing this house, we were driving around. I said to my husband: “Let’s have a look at this place. As I walked in, I was like, ‘This is it. This is the house’. I don’t know what it was, but I just fell in love with it.”
