Home Decorating Idea
This is a large, four-bedroom house ideal for entertaining. All the living areas and bedrooms are north facing to capture maximum light and sun during the cooler seasons.
Entry into a foyer with angled walls is from the north, adjacent to the double garage.
The foyer is ideal for an artwork as a focal point and has doors leading to the garage, study and guest toilet.
The large open-plan lounge has a skylight along one side and leads to the staircase to the first floor. The lounge, dining room, bar area and wine store are all positioned around a huge fireplace.
Sliding stacking doors on both sides of the fireplace open up onto the covered patio, allowing for the creation of a large space ideal for entertainment. A wooden deck joins the swimming pool with the patio, which has a built-in braai, back-to-back with the inside fireplace.

An off-shutter concrete wall cuts through the width of the house at a distinctive angle, screening the living areas from the main bedroom and service areas, and creating unusual spaces.
The concrete wall is also the backdrop for the staircase to the bedrooms on the first floor.
A koi pond runs the length of the living areas on the southern facade and glass sliding panels open up onto the water. A curved, off-shutter, concrete screen wall creates a landscaped courtyard around the koi pond, providing an opportunity for sculptural works to be installed as focal points.
