Our accommodation includes five luxurious air-conditioned bedrooms with king-sized beds, each with its own private patio, garden and fountain.
The rooms are furnished in South African Karoo style and graced with a fabulous collection of original South and West African paintings, carvings and bronzes. Original Oregon wood floors with scattered Persian rugs add to the overall elegance of the house. En suite bathrooms include shower, twin washbasins on Italian granite slabs and - best of all - outsize baths that invite intimate candle-lit meetings!
The decorator’s theme extends to the elegant and spacious dining and sitting rooms, where ceiling fans produce gentle swirls of cooling air. In hotter conditions, air conditioning throughout the House easily copes with your need for comfort.
Dining and sitting rooms flow out to a flagstone-paved courtyard, ideal for fresh morning breakfasts or al fresco dining on hot still summer evenings, or just for lazing, drink in hand, to enjoy the scenery.
The courtyard’s restful water fountain looks over the long view westwards across a blue sparkling swimming pool and gazebo, green vineyards and lush orchards, with a backgrop of the stark and dramatic Swartberg Mountains.
Throughout the house, sash windows and wood and glass paneled doors in the Karoo style are traditionally covered in the afternoons to keep out the fierce Western Cape sun.
The cool shade of a verandah surrounds three sides of the house, inviting you to relax on 19th century Cape rusbanke (traditional rawhide-strung farm benches), and enjoy a feast of bird life on the adjacent dam and surrounding trees.
