Tucked away in the heart of Greenpoint lies this vibrant and inviting home, a fusion of old and new.
The courtyard garden is where you spread out to from the main living area. A small plunge pool with Moroccan tiles is where you can cool off after a long day of exploring the Cape.
Stay home and cook in the well-equipped kitchen or head out to one of the many fabulous restaurants close by. You really are spoilt for choice.
The main bedroom has the best views over the city and ocean, fabulous by day and magical at night with the lights of the city before you.
Jewel house is perfect for anyone who wants to be in Cape Town and feel cocooned by the magic of this gorgeous bolthole and yet be central enough for business trips or fabulous holidays.
The original wooden beams and ceilings dating to the 19th century are intact on the ground floor, and on the second floor the ceilings are contemporary offshutter concrete. The ground floor also features original 19th century exposed brickwork, and the staircase is contemporary polished concrete (so a mixture of old and new throughout). All sash windows are original; on the top floor the owner painstakingly sourced antique church windows and a round stained glass centre-piece window, all to reference the church next door.
The garden is completely waterwise, professionally designed with bougainvillea, aloes, hibiscus and leopard trees.
