This 5-bedroom house comes with 4 bathrooms, large open plan kitchen/ living area, scullery, undercover outdoor space with a built-in- braai, double garage and fully equipped servant quarters. Great open flow concept for entertainment.
The house was inspired by the surrounded nature reserve with spectacular views. During the design stage BPX planned the house layout to ensure great flow and views from most rooms. The house was rotated to make the most of the views without being tarnished by the harsh western sunsets. The estate required American Colonial style and the architect did a superb job ensuring intricate details are visible from all elevations. BPX designed all the finishing styles (detail and colours) for inside and outside, this includes the kitchen and bathrooms.
The stand is located on a steep hill. Huge boulders the size of small cars was removed to make room for the foundations. With a 15m drop in fall over the site, clever retaining walls were developed around the house to allow for manicured landscaped spaces.
