A magnificent museum-quality, contemporary home with breathtaking city and ocean views extraordinary and unique find, even in Beverly Hills. A five-minute drive from the Beverly Hills Hotel, the luxurious gated property boasts 6 bedrooms, 10 baths, a soaring 36′ grand entry foyer and fully automated floor-to-ceiling glass walls that disappear at the touch of a button, seamlessly integrating approximately 15,500 sq. ft. of exquisite indoor/outdoor living. The home boasts every amenity imaginable, including a 100’ infinity-edge pool and a lavish outdoor entertaining area. Its Craftsman-quality finishes and fixtures are simply impossible to replicate, while imported materials, from the maid’s quarters to the master bedroom suite, transform the home into a modern work of art.
On arrival one is lead up delicate cantilevering concrete stairs alongside an immense off-shutter concrete wall which tapers dramatically towards its base – and thence into a triple volume Entrance Foyer. Here visitors are welcomed by a sculpture set into a water-feature and, through full height glazing, glimpses of mountain beyond. Monolithic stairs are suspended above and filter shafts of refracted morning light creating a sense of calm. The Study, Gym, Massage Room and luxurious Guest Bedrooms are all situated at the Ground Floor behind vegetation, screens and double glazing considerately layered to provide privacy and peace.

The Estate is located on the Eastern fringe of the Stellenbosch mountains and is one of South Africa’s premier golfing residential developments, situated among orchards and vineyards on the outskirts of the historic town of Stellenbosch.
