Elevated architectural masterpiece offers sweeping views of the Constantia Valley

At the pinnacle of a tranquil cul-de-sac lies this boldly conceptual family home. The arresting vista of the vineyards of Groot Constantia, and the mountains behind it, are really the focal point of this unique family home. From the vineyards, it appears as if the home is floating above the earth. The north-facing aspects of the house are mainly glass, to maximise the 360-degree view. This ethereal quality is just one of the many features that make this a rare find. From the roadside, the house appears deceptively ordinary, even modular with its two mono-pitch flip-up roofs but as one enters via a glass-encased staircase, which offers an unexpected view of the False Bay coastline and surrounding gardens, one realises that this structure is anything but standard. The materials used for the construction of the home provide a warm, bright, but relatively neutral canvas that will be a delight for a homeowner with a flair for design and décor – Cedar-wood cladding for the exterior and living area ceilings, meticulously cast off-shutter concrete feature walls, beams and ceilings, solid oak floors and cabinetry. Tucked beneath the living areas in the natural space created by the slope of the ground, is a bespoke wine cellar, and the air-conditioned cellar can house 1 000 bottles. The bedroom wing, with four rooms, is stepped to offer each room both a Northern and Western aspect and to blend in with the garden. This symbiosis is perhaps best appreciated in the master suite, where a freestanding bath-tub enjoys pride of place on a plinth overlooking the garden and vineyards. Stackable glass doors ensure that, when the cedar screens and curtains are opened, there is nothing between you and the outdoors to impede this al fresco indulgence. The acre of land, with 130 metres of North–facing frontage right onto Groot Constantia's vineyards and the mountains beyond, is unique in this established residential area. The introduction of more than 300 trees into the garden have been laid out to subtly mirror the linear design of the house. There is a truly unique fynbos garden with several hundred, different species and many other rarer fynbos genuses. There is a beautiful wooden play-house and slide tucked away amongst the trees but the garden itself is a pleasure for the whole family to enjoy. A private gate allows for easy access to the adjacent vineyards. The outside entertainment area boasts a pizza oven, stainless steel built-in braai and a climbing wall that leads up to the rooftop deck with uninterrupted 360-degree views. Additional features include a sizable salt/chlorinated swimming pool with a cover, a treehouse and a trampoline, as well as two outside showers. A triple garage, staff accommodation, study and a guest suite make up part of the ground floor. Beneath the home is a sauna room. An electric fence, outside beams and the perimeter ClearVu fence ensures peace of mind without compromising the breathtaking views.
