For those fortunate enough to be browsing for their dream home, this acclaimed interior decorator’s home will not disappoint.

The home maintains an easy flow between the living areas and the various outdoor spaces, making this the ideal home for a family who loves to entertain. The entire property allows for complete privacy and various entertainment areas which are all centered around the courtyard and is just a toe-dipping distance from the inviting crystal clear solar heated pool. The sheltered garden is filled with an interesting array of textured foliage, the soothing sound of water and birdsong.
Connectivity and flow are key in a home and the wide entrance gallery allows a glimpse of the garden and forms the backbone of the house with living rooms and kitchen leading off this space. The lounge with high ceilings and a fireplace create a serene palette and bespoke couches and custom-made bookcases exude a sense of tranquillity. A fireplace is a necessity during the Cape winters, and with this in mind, various living rooms and bedrooms were designed with fireplaces. The conservatory-style dining room has lovely arched windows and can easily accommodate 12 guests.
The well-planned kitchen features an island that serves as a multifunctional storage, prep and seating unit. It is the social hub of the home, the use of retractable windows between this space and the informal entertainment area, removes any sense of boundaries and allows guests and hosts to mingle effortlessly in this multipurpose space.
