A home for newlyweds, every aspect of this house has been carefully thought out to create a sense of connectedness.
This home’s aesthetic – red facebrick with exposed king trusses – adds to the effect, reminiscent as it is of old farm-style buildings.
With walking trails, a restaurant and gym, this up-and-coming estate offers a lifestyle that is modern, family-oriented and relaxed.
Symmetry, comfort and style are the words that immediately come to mind when describing this family home.
Not quite open-plan, but just as inviting, this four-bedroom home in a lush housing estate just outside Johannesburg expertly mixes the old with the new.
The primary space of this home is the garden, which is treated like a “suburban piazza”, around which the house, the veranda, the planter beds and the boma are arranged.
The fact that the owner is also the architect and interior designer of this Pretoria house explains its very personal feel.
Eye-catching furniture was incorporated throughout this home, including the family room, dining room, kitchen and main bedroom.
Having made the choice to start from scratch in an eco-estate to the north of Johannesburg, 18 months ago, this family of four couldn’t be happier living in their Highveld-inspired home.
Rising above the driveway as if floating on air, this home ushers visitors beneath the top floor via a gated driveway and into the motorcade courtyard.
What strikes the visitor first about this Midstream home is the lack of colour; everything is white. But that’s not to say it’s clinical or even boring.
Steel, wood and facebrick dominate this home, giving it a large cabin appearance.
Bordering on a nature reserve, with serene views of the city in the distance, the location of their home couldn’t be more perfect for this nature-loving family.
Having built this extensive property – situated in the northern suburbs of Cape Town – himself over two years, the owner ensured it was visually enticing as it was practical.
Surrounded by an immaculate garden, this home immediately draws the visitor’s attention.
