'Noisy stripper' property auctioned off

The property was once home to more than a dozen Teazers strippers - separated by nationality because they would become too jealous of their rival dancers.

The Bedfordview property which was auctioned off.

But yesterday, one of Lolly Jackson's Bedfordview properties was auctioned off for R2.75 million to a brother and sister who want to turn it into a true family home.

The place is the first of a series of properties set to be auctioned off after the strip king's estate was recently liquidated.

Shortly after Jackson was murdered, The Star reported in an exposé on the Teazers magnate that he separated his 'girls' by nationality, setting up a Russian house, a Romanian house and a Bulgarian house in the Ekurhuleni suburb.

While it's not exactly clear which gamut of exotic dancers it housed, the massive property, covering almost 1 700m², once held a bevy of nubile women, with five bedrooms in the main residence, four bathrooms, two lounges, a dining room, a kitchen and four carports.

A second double-storey building on the same plot also had five bedrooms and all the other necessities.

A cottage on the property could also hold at least two people, with two bedrooms and a spacious study, kitchen and lounge.

Van's Auctioneers advertised the home on its website as the 'ideal family home close to major access roads, facilities and amenities such as Eastgate Shopping Centre'.

And that is exactly what Mohammed and Shahista Khan are planning on - to transform the property into a place in which he and his sister's families can occupy the numerous buildings on the property.

Mohammed told The Star he wasn't fazed by the home's history, and that a lengthy renovation process would have to take place before he could move in because of the house's dilapidated state.

He also said neighbours he had spoken to were happy to hear that a family would be moving in, as living next door to the home was difficult due to the noise.

Auctioneer Reneé Fourie said the company was handed Jackson's properties in the past year or so, but this particular one had been vacant for some time.

She added that the other properties would be auctioned off in the coming months.
