The estate is renowned for its manicured fairways, wildlife, and breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, making it the ideal location to build or buy a home that complements a way of life unique to its South African heritage.
“I was extremely pleased with the final result of the home. Throughout this whole process, I have realised that paying attention to detail and selecting quality finishes makes all the difference,” remarks the owner.
The owners say it was practicality that was the main force behind the creation of this house. The architect turned their vision into a perfectly practical yet elegant home that they could not have envisaged from the conceptual stages of the project.
Located in the most private spot in an exclusive estate of only 12 other homes, the lower level position of the plot allows the splendid woody environment to become part of this family’s daily orientation.
A home which was open-plan, allowing a blend of indoor and outdoor interaction, was top on the list of the residents requirements. The ingenious combination of an African-Asian theme makes this home truly distinct.
Fortunately for home owner and architect Francois Strachan of S4 Architecture and Design, 10 years of experience brought it all together in a fine example of a practical house sculpted to allow its residents to live in absolute ease.
