Drive past this cantilevered home at twilight, when each of the three one-meter-high chandeliers in the entrance hall is lit, and you’ll be sure to do a double-take.
Situated on the Val de Vie golf and polo estate in Paarl, Valentia Manor is a 27ha estate all on its own, home to Renier Swart of Val de Vie Construction and his family.
Having relocated from a quaint seaside town, this family of four chose something completely different: an estate among the Cape Winelands.
What began with a seemingly innocuous search for a practical midway commute point between Johannesburg and Pretoria led this family to their ideal home.
Nestled below the Magaliesberg Mountains, in an exclusive, low-density housing estate north of Johannesburg, this modern chateau is a dream come true for the family who call it home.
Set in a quiet Winelands suburb of Cape Town, this Tuscan villa is as quirky as it is endearing.
With the quaint rural atmosphere of this home, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, you could be forgiven for thinking you were enjoying a quiet stay on a traditional farm.
With its magnificent views overlooking the valleys, this home is the epitome of relaxation and comfort.
Situated on an upmarket golf estate in the Upper Highway area of KwaZulu-Natal, this stately home boasts magnificent views over the golf course and clubhouse.
This home is situated at the edge of a lake, which creates a sense of being enveloped by nature.
The exterior of the home may give the impression of an old farm-style house in the country, but as soon as you step in, the modern furniture and open-plan design lend themselves to a more contemporary take on retirement.
This double-storey, 450m2 free-standing cluster has space for eight cars and boasts four bedrooms en suite, as well as a central pyjama lounge and study area.
Relocating to South Africa had been a long-time dream for this Belgian couple. When they finally made the move, not a single facet in the construction of their dream home was left out or compromised.
When the young professional couple decided to build their family home in this country estate, they saw it as a long-term investment in a quality lifestyle.
The single-storey house gently follows the contours of the ground, creating different platforms of garden terrace where they can watch the world go by.
