The brief for this property was simple: design a home that would cater for the owners’ needs once they reached retirement age, while not compromising on elegance or the surrounding natural views.
The owners of this family home in Johannesburg had their hearts set on this property, built in 1972 by a well-known architect, but it needed extensive restoration.
Although this home was built in a small, secure estate, the stand is large, with impressive trees.
Luxury and opulence characterise this beautiful double-storey home, which the owner built after having lived in an apartment for many years.
Having relocated from a quaint seaside town, this family of four chose something completely different: an estate among the Cape Winelands.
To say that a considerable amount of thought and preparation went into the design of this house would be an understatement.
It’s in one of Durban’s prestigious estates that you will find the heart of this young family’s home.

Positioned on a prime site adjacent to the 18th hole of a golf estate in KwaZulu-Natal, this property is a fine example of a modern family home in a countryside setting.
An awe-inspiring Tuscan-inspired house with unobstructed views of the fairway and river.
What began with a seemingly innocuous search for a practical midway commute point between Johannesburg and Pretoria led this family to their ideal home.
You will find this delightful property in an exclusive state on Cape Town’s west coast, where both birdlife and sea life are abundant.
This home has a beautifully tailored interior, offering time out for the owners from their fast-paced lives.
