From the inside-out, it is clear that these discerning home owners have paid meticulous attention to each detail, ensuring a magnificent end result. The 100m² double volume entrance hall is an indication of things to come and the house was designed in such a way that even from here, one has a fantastic view.
Gold, black and cream are the dominant interior colours, with the gold and black used specifically to create a dramatic effect. Each room has its individual identity with the introduction of a fourth colour in hues of red, orange, mauve or turquoise.
An imposing dual staircase sweeps one from the ground level to the first floor. In the left wing, three bedrooms – two of them en suite – and a free-standing bathroom can be found. Two of these beautiful bathrooms have their own jetted spa baths, providing the ultimate in relaxation.
The master bedroom of the home is towards the right wing of the home. Nothing has been spared to ensure the ultimate in luxury and comfort. A private lounge area, modern kitchenette, expansive walk-in closet, full bathroom and private balcony are among the wonderful features.
For some recreational activity, an art studio and a music room are found on this level too. This house even has its own cinema and a Jacuzzi/snooker room which opens up onto the undercover patio area and infinity pool.
Luxurious fabrics and textures found in the window dressings, furniture and linen add warmth, while the polished flooring and wrought iron balustrading provides a perfect contemporary balance. The 180-degree view which can be seen from nearly anywhere within the home adds a feeling of absolute tranquillity.
This home is an enchanting balance of dark and light, opulent and modern and above all, it is majestically captivating yet simply welcoming.
