Tucked away in an exclusive country estate just outside Pretoria, this family home had an entirely different look and feel before the current home owners purchased it and made it their own.

“We chose to renovate a house that was extremely modern with huge open spaces in certain areas and very small rooms with no specific purpose in others,” the home owner reveals. “We wanted to capitalise on all this unused space and create fewer, yet bigger, bedrooms and bathrooms.”

The owner adds, “However, we still wanted to maintain the open-plan look and feel in the kitchen and all the main living areas.”
