A thoroughly grand affair

This private residence on a beautiful Constantia estate is exceptional in design and finish, and it is for sale.

This home has a luxurious Italian Villa-style aesthetic, with solid oak floors, marble counter tops, bespoke ceiling design and a thoroughly romantic Romeo and Juliet balcony. The garden is planted with colourful bougainvillea and perfumed foliage while latticed vines decorate the walls of the house. Order and symmetry are achieved with little bushels of manicured topiary set in a flawless garden surrounding a deep blue swimming pool.

The home’s entertaining options include grand style formal functions, a movie night in the 15-seater cinema or casual lunches in the informal entertainment room that opens out to the pool terrace. Take either the lift or the sweeping staircase to the four luxurious en-suite bedrooms all with their own lounge areas, dressing rooms and balconies looking out over the manicured gardens or to the mountains beyond. Guests have a private suite downstairs or can be totally separate in the self -contained garden apartment.

The residence features a library and boardroom, a bar and wine cellar, a gym, a meditation room and a studio. There are also four garages and staff quarters. As if that wasn’t enough, the endless views of the mountains makes this property a rare find.

The design of the whole home is clever – every room whispers exclusive privacy.
