Imagine yourself at a crossroads of sophisticated culture, and style with virtual borders; a dash of hot and exotic North Africa, a smidgeon of Italy, a sense of Paris or Provence – and at every turn, your curiosity piqued about the origin of the artwork, the collectables and furniture.
Maison du Sud is an embracing home in many respects – literally and figuratively, extending to the way the home is designed, offering life at a pace you dictate. There are secluded courtyards redolent with the fragrance of jasmine and shady patios and verandahs where a riot of cerise bougainvillea blooms in the heat. There are lawns and a pool house area, there’s a library and a piano in one room.
The invitation? Collapse elegantly into an armchair to read quietly or play your favourite Bach or Beethoven. But mostly, it is a house that understands family life and would easily lend itself to holiday lets for large families, two couples with two or three children between them, or simply grown-up stays free from the cries of tiny humans.
Designed with windows that catch light from all compass points, the house is set high in the hills of Hout Bay with an elevated view of the harbour, sea and mountains. You experience a wonderful sense of place at this elevation watching the weather roll in so that you may plan your day at home or explore the surrounds.
