This incredible property is reached via an impressive driveway that leads past the lower levels of the villa. The immediate impression is one of timeless architecture, superb décor and absolute elegance. A staircase leads to a lounge area with large wooden doors opening into the King and Queen suites. These elegant suites each have a private furnished terrace with gorgeous ocean views. The King Suite is furnished with a super size King bed which can be converted to two singles. There is a beautiful open-plan bath area and a walk-in shower. The romantic Queen suite has a feature bath in the bedroom with ocean views. There is a separate en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and the room is furnished with a King-size bed.
The elegant staircase leads up to expansive living areas, generously decorated with antiques, art, and modern quirkiness. The lounge and bar are ocean-facing and lead out to the front terrace, comfortably furnished for enjoying sunny days or a relaxing sundowner. The Bösendorfer grand piano adds an elegant musical touch that compliments the surrounding artworks. The dining area leads out to the side terrace and lush gardens with spectacular views and an undisturbed setting.
The garden terrace provides a variety of seating options for both dining and lounging and is the ideal place to find some peace and tranquillity while drinking in the views. The pool is beautifully designed around gigantic granite boulders and trees, and loungers are placed in various private nooks. The garden leads on to the Table Mountain nature reserve, a World Heritage site, from where guests can access hiking trails to Lion’s Head, Signal Hill or Table Mountain.
The circular triple volume staircase leads up to the final two levels of the mansion – one where the Lion’s Head Suite is located and then on to the Penthouse level. The Lion’s Head Suite is a vibrant and inviting space which overlooks the nature reserve. Furnished with an eclectic ensemble of modern and antique pieces, the suite has a King-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with shower over bath.
The opulent Penthouse suite has 360 degree views from its magnificent location on the entire upper floor of the mansion. This 250 square metre suite boasts multiple balconies, two separate terraces and beautiful glass doors all around that open up to the incredible views. The suite enters to a daybed relaxation space and then winds around to the stylishly furnished lounge, indoor dining room, and the terraces where outdoor dining can be enjoyed. The next turn leads to the bedroom with King-size bed and views of the Twelve Apostles. Just beyond is the TV drawing room with fireplace and the two en-suite bathrooms with bath, shower and steam room.
Enjoy lazy lunches and dinners on one of the many terraces, patios, decks or inside the mansion. Sundowners and canapés are served daily and massage treatments are catered to suit specific needs. Enjoy an early morning yoga session or guided hikes leading from the gate of the back garden.
