This magnificent home is in a prime position, chosen specifically for its privacy and security in Waterfall Country Estate.
The natural look and feel to this unique, one-of-a-kind designer home inspired by International Designer Tom Kundig and Designed by Studios Architects, is accentuated by the wood and steel cladding, with an accent wall of natural wood and a steel-clad silo being the first thing to catch your eye.
Indoors and outdoors link, where the living areas open up to access the outside and create one generous inviting, designer, entertainers delight. All these elements resulted in a green home, with the use of sustainable materials and elements such as rainwater to irrigate the garden, solar panels to heat the pool, heat pumps for geysers and underfloor heating and double glazing throughout.
Instead of a traditional consolidated garden, this design consists of four parallel east-west wings with a north-south circulation corridor that splits up the stand into six intimate garden pods all professionally landscaped by Jan Bloc, one of S.A. best landscaping designers, with the bottom garden pod hosting a trampoline and grass play area for the kids. The pods allow in tremendous sunlight but are positioned close enough to the next wing to form joint liveable spaces.
Upon entering this home, you are greeted by a triple volume entrance hall, created by a roof structure with top-lit windows which are unique in their angle and lighting effect. Immediately off to the right, you will find the silo, clad in corrugated steel sheeting – hosting the wine cellar, library and art gallery. A private en-suite guest suite leads off the silo, giving your guests the ultimate in privacy and space, with views of a tranquil water feature and stunning garden.
A spectacular spiral staircase takes you up to a large studio, with an enormous balcony overlooking the Estate, a perfect work-from-home space – this studio has the infrastructure in place to convert it into a 5th bedroom.
A state-of-the-art stone and cement kitchen, complete with built-in SMEG appliances overlooks a neatly paved courtyard with trees and links to the TV lounge. The scullery accesses the triple garages and a separate courtyard that houses the heat pump which powers the geyser and reticulated underfloor heating and pool pump.
The formal lounge has a gorgeous extra-long infinity fireplace and opens out onto a decked entertainment area, with a built-in bar and braai, a firepit and beautifully shaded by some of the over 40 mature trees planted on the property. The TV lounge/kids study can be accessed from the entertainment area and both overlook the solar-heated pool. The pool is a 15m lap pool and runs east to west under the main passageway. All doors down the main passageway are stackable doors and open up to make you feel at one with nature.
At the end of the main passageway, you will find the bedrooms. Downstairs are 2 beautifully sized mirror bedrooms, both en-suite with doors opening out onto a deck overlooking the garden.
A floating concrete stairway leads you upstairs to the master suite. This area is spectacular in size and features a lounge complete with an infinity fireplace, a dressing room with a cupboard for everything and a lavish bathroom – an amazing space to unwind and relax at the end of a tough day.
Extra Features include a self-contained two-bedroom duplex flat, with a separate entrance, rainwater tanks for irrigation, fibre with internet access everywhere in the home, double glazing throughout, integrated Beam vacuum system, an integrated sound system, situated one street away from a large kids park and playground and more….
