This is one of the most majestic and desirable properties on the Cape peninsula, set in the exclusive suburb of Bishopscourt, in southern Cape Town, and with spectacular views of Table Mountain from every aspect. It is a lush, green and tranquil area, home to several international personalities, and to the world renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.
The property is within a ten minute drive from the coast and fifteen minutes from the airport and Cape Town city centre. Dating back to 1943, the latest work on the main house was completed in 1989, and the interiors totally redecorated in 2008. It offers over 14,000 square feet of internal living space and has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard with comfort and relaxation in mind. Bedroom accommodation is in six stunning bedrooms, all with private en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and with direct access to terraces draped with white roses and jasmine. On the lower ground level, there is a media room with pool table, bar, digital satellite television, DVD player, retractable screen and a home cinema system.
Further amenities include flat screen satellite televisions in all bedrooms, telephone, computer and internet access. There are also exercise and spa facilities consisting of a sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, studio/treatment room and shower room. The beautifully landscaped gardens are totally secluded and feature a 10 metre swimming pool and sundeck with loungers and a floodlit tennis court. The property is staffed by a highly trained team whose sole focus is to ensure that your every need is catered for. The outstanding chef and his team will ensure each dining experience is truly memorable, from breakfast, to al fresco lunches in the open-air gazebo (set at the foot of the garden and seemingly at the foot of Table Mountain itself), to superb culinary experiences in the formal dining room.
Enjoy sunset cocktails on the upper terrace and a more relaxed supper on the main terrace.
