We are so excited about some new listings which we have showcased below.
 
In the heart of Hout Bay, 
this property offers stillness from the business of life. Amani 
is a fully functional spiritual retreat, curated using only natural products. This is a place that
brings people together.
 
Not far off, we have a 
one of a kind property which was featured on Top Billing. Steam Punk Towers has a combination of spectacular location and the inimitable character and “story” which give it it’s quirky distinctiveness. It is a living experience…not just a place to live. It seeks escape from the mundane by reshaping the ordinary and predictable, with imagination, theatrical flair, some circus, some fantasy and some magic. It repurposes the old, the unused and the ugly, giving it a new patina of humble, dishevelled respectability and a wash of playful optimism. It is science fiction, unrealistically impractical but irresistibly cool.
 
Finally, we have 
Sillery Oaks – a contemporary farmhouse style home yet to be built in the sought after Sillery Avenue overlooking the Sillery Green belt in the Constantia Valley. The advantage here is that you get to be involved in the fixtures and fittings and, to a degree, the architect can change a few things to suit your personal needs.
It’s situated on a 850m2 plot next to the original home which will be of the same
architectural style. Trees, green belt and mountain views - beautiful!


We are very happy about some great PR coverage we have received recently from Property24 on the Love Island Villa that we have for sale and here.

Warmest,
Julia

Sillery Oaks is a contemporary home yet to be built in the heart of Upper Constantia in Sillery Avenue, one of the most sought-after roads in the Constantia Valley on one of Constantia's famous green belt walks known as the Silverhurst Trail.

Seldom does the opportunity arise to live in such a prime location combining luxury and security with all the needs of today's family.

The house is next door/ on the same acre plot as the original house and designed by well-known architect Jane Visser. Both houses will have contemporary farmhouse architecture complimenting each other which balances a modern approach with large areas of glass whilst retaining most of the original mature trees and the rural beauty of the area. Although on the same plot, there will be privacy and security for both houses with separate entrances.

The generously proportioned open-plan main living area provides plenty of space for family living and entertaining. Large expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass bring the outdoors in with amazing views and light surrounded by beautiful trees. Living areas open seamlessly onto low-maintenance landscaped gardens with discreet but efficient security measures in place.

Buying off plan means the finishes and fittings can be altered to a degree with samples of tiles, carpets and sanitary ware. Also the floor plan allows for 2 bedrooms and a pyjama lounge upstairs and a 3rd bedroom en-suite or study/ TV room downstairs. This can be changed to have all the bedrooms upstairs if there are young children, with the pyjama lounge downstairs. There is also a study area upstairs. The separate flat above the double garage has a separate entrance and is ideal for granny, older kids, or work-from-home. Access from the flat straight into the top floor of the house can also be accommodated for if needed.

Sillery Oak's location is first class - just 25 minutes from Cape Town city centre but close to working hubs like Claremont and Westlake. A short stroll takes you to the Chardonnay Deli renowned for its coffee, fresh organic produce and excellent breakfasts.

And literally, next door is a selection of cafes, bars, more delis and cool shops. In addition a short drive away are two golf courses, seven wine farms, seven top schools, a Virgin Active gym and leading medical facilities. This location is one of the very best in Constantia.

In the heart of Hout Bay, this property offers stillness from the business of life, it does help that this is a fully functioning spiritual retreat built to bring groups together to experience mindful talks, sound journeys, yoga practice and other wholistic practices. One has to be there to understand the deep peace one finds when entering the gates of this property.

The owner has lovingly curated this space using only natural products even the walls to the buildings have been screeded with earth from the grounds. When walking through this land one feels the energy humming through one’s veins. Look around to see the roof sprung with plants as if from a Tolkien Novel, perhaps Frodo will walk out the door of his hobbit home.

There are surprises at every turn... take a dip in the natural pool designed by world class designers of fully natural pools Eco pools watched over by a unicorn no less... Meander on through the Chakara garden pop out into organic veggie gardens, find solace within the building known as the Earthship that has its own greenhouse, and meaning when walking the quartz stone labyrinth. Experience a night under the stars in one of the four geodesic domes perfectly situated within the gardens. Quieten your mind and strengthen your body in a another building where one can also meet around the dining room table or move in to the main house and gather around in the massive kitchen to eat hearty wholistic food and relax later in the sumptuous lounge area.

The 4 Geodesic domes situated in the tranquil gardens amidst the crystal labyrinth offers a very unique experience of eco-glamping. Each spacious dome has king/twin size beds with percale linen and an outside eco-toilet and shower. Sleeping in the geodesic dome cocoons one with this harmonious design in nature, while looking up at the stars.

Over and above all this there is a cottage for staff or guests and to top it all off it is fully off the grid with its own borehole and solar panels supplying electricity.

This truly unique masterpiece of curated design is what makes the property special. Aside from the unprecedented views across Hout Bay beach towards the mountains, this special place is not for the person looking for the 3 bed, 3 bath home - this space ticks all the boxes for someone looking for that never-been-seen-before feast of fun design, specially curated materials and spectacular views.

Nothing in this home is off-the-shelf standard - everything is a journey into the story behind it, where it was found, and how the owner enjoys this unique space. The position of the house in the Baviaanskloof valley, even though you are high up backing onto the natural fynbos of the mountain, means you can hear the crashing waves on the Hout Bay beach.

Greeted in a cylindrical entrance hall which makes a huge statement, immediately letting you know you are in a unique space. This home is for the client looking for something special to reflect a creative personality, the need for something unique that inspires, whilst taking in the external beauty of the mountain and the sea.

There is a very large main bedroom with views over the beach and doors out onto the patio. Exposed brick detail, high ceilings and reclaimed wooden barn doors as well as a large walk-in wardrobe make this a special room.

There is a large living room with exposed trusses, double volume, concrete screened floors and a built in fireplace, looking onto the balcony with indigenous plantings and the amazing view. Details like sheets of corrugated sheeting, exposed brick, old brass taps mixed with crystal chandeliers, graffiti artworks, brass baths, and red colanders as light fittings are ’standard’ in this home!

Crafted masonry of the local stone at the back of the house leads to a covered entertainment area, an outdoor shower, an outside bath with views over the valley, a natural pool and water features.

There is a separate small kitchen / with separate entrance on other side of house where the other 2 bedrooms are (all en-suite) which allows for a separate flat / staff room/ or just for older kids to have their own kitchen area. This area can either be connected to the house or closed off which offers versatility.

Featured in Top Billing, and a popular location for fashion shoots with the Amazing Spaces shoot division, this is a unique space that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated!
