Eco-friendly estate living has become increasingly popular in the Boland region of the Western Cape, and looking at this fresh, modern property, one can see why.
This home is situated in a unique, eco-friendly estate which is as close to “off the grid” as possible.
The unused roof space of a multi-storey industrial building, in the heart of Morningside, has been converted into a home that radiates charm and style.
The unobtrusive and modest exterior of this home belies an architectural wonder that offers its inhabitants both a sophisticated lifestyle and privacy from the outside world.
In the suburbs of Durban North lies one of the most beautiful eco-friendly new builds in the area. So passionate was this family to “live more gently on this planet” that not one eco-conscious stone was left unturned.
What was planned as a holiday home soon became the main residence for this KwaZulu-Natal couple.
Set on a 1 000ha KwaZulu-Natal game farm, this traditionally inspired farmhouse needed meticulous planning to ensure it did not impede on municipal and park restrictions.
Over the course of a year, the owners of this home embarked on a build that would not only result in a beautiful family home, but allow them to avoid being reliant on municipal services.
Far from the hustle and bustle of the city lies a sanctuary fit for a king. This modern home embraces the great views of nature and was built to be energy-efficient.
This modern home is technology-driven, but also carries a range of familiar finishes.
With calming tones of white and grey throughout this open-plan house, it is the perfect place to unwind after a long day at the office and a difficult commute home.
Describing their home as modern, classic, eco-friendly, tranquil and homely, the owners of this elegant property had hoped to merge the thresholds of interior and exterior.
For these home owners, who are nature-lovers, a home that reflected their love for the outdoors was important, expressed through the natural colours and materials used throughout the home
Sitting proudly on the banks of a river in a renowned estate with spectacular views, walking trails and abundant birdlife, this home was not only tastefully, but also thoughtfully, designed
