DescriptionBack to top
The ingenious versatility of this six-bedroom villa/ one bedroom apartment is its ability to function as either three separate apartments, each sleeping six on self-contained floors, a main home and guest storey, each with its own pool and jacuzzi, or as one triple-level villa interconnected with and accessible from each level via steep stone steps. The design is wrought in indigenous natural materials of signature ‘balau’ timber decking and in the interior travertine tiling and caesar-stone. The villa is environmentally-friendly in minimising water use by means of an electronically controlled watering system, rain-water tank irrigation recycling and rooftop solar panels.On the first level above the garage and storage rooms, the guest suite/master bedroom opens onto a very large deck and unique feature of a swirling pebble and grass-effect Zen-style garden of cacti plants and quartz boulders.
Fluorescent spot-lights after dark, as with the heated rim-flow pool above, lead you up wooden step tiers to a plunge pool. The night time effect is particularly picturesque as ultra-violet lighting transforms the pools into glowing jewels. Alternatively, you can take a relaxing dip in the nearby Jacuzzi. The first floor apartment sleeps four with a king-size bed and a double-sleeper couch in the lounge while the kitchen has full-specification.
The lounge boasts a large LCD TV, DVD, CD and iPod players. There is a king-size bed, generous wardrobe space and an en-suite bathroom. The apartment is rendered in clean whites, aquamarine, sea-greens and shades of brown while touches of green and blue mosaic, glass tiles underscore the maritime theme. Furnishing of raw-silk curtains are used throughout the villa to dress the patio window doors.
Home-entertainment comes by way of LCD TV, DVD, CD and iPod players. Outside the large deck accommodates a heated rim-flow infinity pool, terracotta-mosaic dining tables and wooden patio furniture inviting alfresco entertaining with gas barbecue area. Uninterrupted coastal seascapes extend here to Robben Island while to the rear and across the bay the Twelve Apostles and Lion’s Head loom as paragliders ride the thermals. The three bedroom suites all have direct balcony access via glass patio doors and share raw silk curtains and muted beach tones. Two rooms share a common bathroom with a jacuzzi-bathtub, double wash basins and large shower units against mosaic walls. The third en suite bedroom here can be separated off as a self-contained master suite with kitchenette, lounge and double-sleeper couch.The third storey has striking crystal and silver chandeliers. An open-plan bar area with several drinks fridges is intended to cater for the entertainment lounge and dining areas and complement the indoor barbecue. Mahogany and caesar-stone finishes predominate in this full-specification utilities area of adjacent scullery, pantry and laundry rooms. The sense of light and space is enhanced through large picture glass panels high in the walls giving framed mountain views. The living-room is designed round a large L-shaped kudu-leather couch with formal mahogany dining table. Wall-to-wall concertina-folding patio doors with louvred windows/ American shutters give on to the exterior. The pergola outside is an attractive touch providing welcome plant shade as an extension to the expansive deck. You can take in the stunning views from this vantage point from the al fresco dining table or assorted sun lounger furniture arrangements. Again, there is an enticing jacuzzi here from which to survey the seascapes below. There are three bedrooms and a separate study/ office area with 3Gb broadband wi-fi capacity.
All bedrooms have ample wardrobe space set against high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling patio doors giving on to the decking terrace. The en suite master has a king-sized bed, generous walk-in wardrobe space and an invitingly sumptuous silver-suede chaise-longue to recline on. Pearl, silver black and white tones predominate complemented by a striking zebra artwork. The travertine tiled, glass mosaic bathroom accommodates an elevated stone bathtub.In short, all bedrooms have air-conditioners and enjoy sea-views with direct decking access while having LCD TVs installed with digital DSTV channels in common with the communal living areas. All bathrooms and kitchens have underfloor heating and heated towel-rails. There is garaging for four cars with off-street parking for a further five. A ‘Paradox’ security system serves all combinations of rented alternatives with separate alarm and entry systems. There is also a separate service entrance for staff and maintenance.
All three lounges have large plasmas, DVD players, CD players and I-pod docking stations. A separate study is equipped with a computer and wireless internet access is throughout all levels of the house. While the villa sleeps 14, there are 2 sleeper couches which can extend the sleeping arrangement to 18 if needed.
