THAT’S NOT A PAINTING, IT’S A REAL VIEW

Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better, said Albert Einstein.
A newly-completed designer home in the luxurious Ruyteplaats Mountain Estate in Hout Bay is your opportunity to do just this. With its organic design, the double-volume home in Constant Close that is being marketed through Pam Golding Properties for R17.995 million, adeptly captures Hout Bay’s sea and mountain vistas from every aspect.
Natural light is amplified by the expert use of glass throughout, and free-flowing indoor spaces blend seamlessly with the outdoor living areas. A skylight in the double volume entrance hall provides a luminescence that sets the tone for the rest of the home. The master bedroom leads onto a 360-degree viewing deck, and other features of this luxury home include a stone clad wine display wall, a contemporary gourmet kitchen and a formal lounge with fireplace.
A rim flow pool is surrounded by terraces and undercover patios, providing yet more opportunities for entertaining. In keeping with the eco-feel of the estate, the home includes green features, such as a 4 500l water tank and borehole access.
The property is surrounded by the estate’s lush indigenous fynbos, and residents also have access to the estate’s tennis court and the many trails leading from the mountain. Llandudno beach is only a short drive away and Lake Lalamanzi is a central feature of the 24-hectare estate and can be reached via various footpaths.
“The owner has designed this home to be enjoyed and shared with friends and guests. Throughout, that spectacular view of the bay, and the Atlantic Ocean, remain the focal point of this elegant and inviting residence,” says Shelly Keys, Pam Golding Properties area manager for Hout Bay. “It really is a property that allows for an unfettered connection with the natural beauty that Hout Bay, and this beautiful mountainside estate, provide.”
