Cape Dutch-Inspired Architectural Art
A peaceful and private haven, just a stone's throw away from the hustle and bustle of Stellenbosch Central and several award-winning wine farms. This unique, off-grid home is situated in a boutique Winelands estate with only 6 properties.
This home is situated within exquisite natural surroundings and offers a lifestyle few will be able to experience as there is a scarcity of this type of land available in Stellenbosch.
The owner-architect of this home masterfully mixed historical Cape Dutch architectural elements with modern, energy-efficient design features. He took care to preserve the beauty of the decades-old trees on the property by designing the home around them, resulting in a beautiful curved-shaped layout.
The North-facing property is perched on a spacious 3001m2 stand with an established, wild garden, wetland, birdlife, and 50 olive trees, which produce the highest quality olive oil once a year. The property boasts gorgeous views of the Simonsberg mountains and is adjacent to a historically protected Cape Dutch building on the neighbouring stand, adding to the unique allure of this home.
