Description: This is a large four bedroom house in a Contemporary style with exceptional internal spaces flowing well into the outside spaces. The Living Rooms and most of the bedrooms are north facing to capture maximum light and sunshine during the colder months.
Entry is from the west, with a double garage with servantís quarters next to it. The garage has glass doors that open up to the swimming pool entertainment area. One enters in an open foyer that becomes the covered walkway that links all the living areas of the house to the patio, swimming pool and garden. The walkway terminates onto a koi-pond as the focal point. From the walkway one enters the open plan double volume space of the living areas that consists of the lounge, dining room and the kitchen. The braai area is located between the swimming pool patio and the kitchen for comfort of use. The kitchenís service areas like the pantry and scullery are hidden from the open plan. The guest room is on the ground floor with an en-suite bathroom. The lounge has a focal wall that hides the entrance to the guest bedroom and extends to the roof of the double volume space creating a dramatic backdrop to the living areas. The staircase to the first floor is accessed from the living space hidden behind a wall.
The double volume living space is a focal point in this house. A bridge on the first floor leads to the master bedroom to the one side and the other bedrooms to the other side. The master bedroom is a large open space with a covered balcony on the north where natural warm sunlight infiltrates the room. There is a walk-in dresser and an open plan master bathroom. The bathroom has a double basin, bath, enclosed separate wc and a shower that cantilevers from the building with skylights to maximise natural lighting in the room. The bathroom is fitted with a gas fire place for heat during the winter months.
The bridge to the west of the house terminates in an open space lounge area with skylights and an enclosed study. A wc for comfort is located next to the lounge. The corridor extends to bedroom 3 and 4 with a large linen cupboard and a bathroom with a bath, shower, basin and wc. Bedroom 3 has a balcony with a roof overhang to protect it from the sun and bedroom 4 has a north window for optimum sunlight.
Please note: The new SANS 10400 Building Regulations that came in force in 2011 have a number of restrictions, amongst others, with regard to window openings. South Africa has also been divided into different climate zones and the building restrictions vary from zone to zone.
It may therefore happen that for some zones, the window openings may have to be reduced in order to comply, otherwise it would not be possible to approve building plans at the local authority in that specific zone.
Therefore: Elements on the building plans that you receive such as the windows, may differ, from the sketch plan that is displayed on the website. In most cases the variances should be a minimum.
We apologize for any inconvenience in this regard, but it is beyond our control. At least it should ensure approval of your building plans at the local authority.
