5. Attention to detail

Nestled in the middle of one of Johannesburg’s more established suburbs, the fortress-like minimalism of this home’s exterior belies the modern contemporary warmth within. A quadruple garage serves to anchor the home while an exterior stairway allows guests to enter the ground floor, with a striking white Baby Grand piano positioned to greet them.

7. Seaside style

An unsurpassed view and sense of space make for easy living at this holiday home. Since her permanent residence is a fourth-generation farmhouse full of heirlooms and antiques, the owner was determined to create a fresh, fun aesthetic for the family’s seaside holiday home. “I want this to be a place where our friends feel they can take off their shoes and relax,” she explains.
