The style of this home reflects a combination of Tuscan and South African-styles, with large roof overhangs, and the usage of stone throughout the construction, as well as the ingenious selection and placement of the many trees.
High ceilings and an abundance of high rise windows allow an undisturbed flow throughout the home creating a spacious living area, allowing a natural warm ambience to fill the home and flow throughout.
The home owners felt no need to use an interior designer as they had envisioned what they wanted to fill their home well in advance. Preferring classic, old fashioned furnishings, the residents adorned their abode with unique timeless pieces and contemporary accessories creating the perfect balance of the two. Not in favour of minimalism, the home owners feel more inclined towards “organised clutter” resulting in a lived-in environment as opposed to a sterile living area.
Fully equipped with an incredible entertainment area, inclusive of a built-in braai, and a large pool, this home boasts an astounding six thousand square meter garden. More impressive is the full scale tennis court, coupled with basketball hoops and a cutting edge gym with a built in sauna.
Fostering the Tuscan theme, the bathroom contributes to the serene feel throughout the home – further elevated by the ingenious use of a large mirror placed above the bath.
To best describe this abode one would have to use the words “all inclusive”. Encompassing absolutely everything one would hope for in a dream home, all of the luxuries and nuances one could want are found within this dream home.
This home emulates not only a stylish representation of everyday living, but also presents itself as a genuine home, filled with a warmth, openness and love – conducive to cultivate a positive, intimate family ambience.
