Estate living in the heart of the Cape Winelands.
Designed for special times with family and friends, suffused with warmth and love.
Inspired by French architecture, this home is both stately and charming.
After 30 years in a cottage-style home, these home owners decided it was time for a change to less clutter, cleaner lines and greater simplicity.
Having lived happily in the same neighbourhood for the past 30 years, the home owners weren’t looking for a drastic change of scenery.
The natural beauty of the Cape Winelands is among the best in the world, and in the midst of it you will find the prestigious and exclusive Val de Vie Estate.
For this property owner, one of the best things about her home is the way various styles have blended in a way that is sometimes unexpected, yet undeniably effective.
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.
