Magnificent home for the connoisseur with spectacular views
House Morgenstern, Linksfield Ridge
Built in 1955 by husband and wife team ‘Morgenstern and Morgenstern Architects’ their dream home came to life. The northern slopes of Linksfield Ridge gave them the panoramic views which they had been searching for, stretching all the way to Pretoria.
The magnificent home consists of natural stone walls which were quarried and dressed on site and built up into thicknesses ranging from around 0,5 m to 1 m - which helps tremendously to maximize the energy efficiency of the home.
The Morgernstern’s commissioned Italian, Eduardo Villa, to create the abstract faces sculptures which are set into an outside stone wall, while another Italian, Armando Baldinelli, set a very large stained-glass window set upstairs along the north wall. These pieces of art have been valued at well over R 1 000 000.
The current owners purchased this home in 2013 and set about refurbishing it into their dream home, literally leaving no stone unturned. Many parts of the home have been renovated to their former glory, for example the stunning glass door which operates by means of its original counter weight door system as well as many of the copper and brass light fittings.
The transition from indoor to outdoor in this home is seamless and visible throughout, bringing much natural light and open space into focus.
