A contemporary Veld Architect house with views of the Magaliesberg and Rhenosterspruit Nature Conservancy offers an upbeat take on eco-conscious living.
Looking at the house from the front garden, the living area is framed on the one side by a bedroom clad with weathering steel that’s been allowed to rust naturally, and on the other side by the rammed-earth wall. The large open-plan living area is roughly divided into a lounge, dining area and kitchen. The lounge, with its pale terrazzo tiles and plywood ceiling, invites in vast views of the grasslands and Magaliesberg in the distance. This amazing house also offers a firewood rack and an avant-garde jungle gym. The teak kitchen cabinetry, with handles made out of recycled window frames, as well as the rosewood dining table is just breathtaking. The rammed-earth wall runs from the entrance all the way through the house. Courtyards and walkways with lush vegetation create a sense of the house being part of the landscape. A cantilevered concrete canopy provides shelter as you approach the front door along a path and a bridge over a koi pond. The main en-suite bathroom, between the bedroom and the dressing room, features a freestanding bath that is positioned so it affords views as well as privacy. The cool palette of glass tiles and pale terrazzo is refined and calming, whereas details such as the steel I-beams pick up on the industrial elements in the architecture of the house. The other 2 Bedrooms have en-suite Bathrooms and walks out onto a stunning landscaped courtyard.
The house comes with the following features:
Siemens Appliances and an Extractor Fan in the Kitchen. Two Airconditioned Study Area Nooks in the Passage. A separate Laundry Area directly connected to a Dry Yard. 3 Garages linked to the main house, with 2 large storage rooms at the back. A Potential Roof Garden/Bar area above the Garage with stairs leading to the roof. Staff Quarters with a shower and a small kitchen. Solar for heat, pump and geyser. A Koi Pond at the Entrance. Water Storage Tanks.
Home Automation including Irrigation, an Integrated Alarm System and Smart Lighting. Underfloor Heating Capability throughout the house.
10 Hours 5kVA Battery Backup/UPS system for all lights and selected plugs. The rammed-earth wall runs from the entrance all the way through the house. The pool pavilion, which reprises the architectural theme of steel beams and floating concrete slabs, provides a space to entertain outdoors.
This beautiful home is a must see.
