Renowned interior designer, Francois Adams says “The client has excellent taste and knew exactly what she wanted,” thereby making the task of decorating the home a bit less challenging.

Following a natural colour palette which was inspired by the surrounding elements, soft hues of blue, green, sand, beige and white are used throughout the home, creating a relaxed and soothing ambience. The spacious culinary area is host to an array of modern appliances, such as the Solis coffee and cappuccino machine. The mahogany cabinetry was strategically designed to allow for maximum storage and is perfectly complemented by the exquisite African Dream granite work surfaces.

Emphasis was placed on open-plan living spaces and expanses of glass and stack doors allow for plenty of natural light to filter through. The dining room, family lounge and formal lounge provide breathtaking views of the sea and were furnished with classic pieces. The luxurious Persian carpets, supplied by Persian Charm, add a touch of glamour and sophistication to the various rooms, and each area flows seamlessly onto the wide verandah where rustic patio furniture and a jetted spa bath allow the home owners to enjoy those sundowners.

Each bedroom carries its own theme and displays the same luxurious simplicity as the rest of the home. Opulent fabrics perfectly complement the furniture and splashes of white create an interesting contrast. The master bedroom is further host to a magnificent en-suite bathroom complete with his and hers basins and vanities.

Expanding over three stories, this beautiful beach home is nothing short of magnificent. However, the most striking feature is certainly the breathtaking views that the owners can enjoy from almost anywhere within the home. This, coupled with the flawless interior, provides a sense of relaxation for all who are fortunate enough to spend time with its four walls.
