When I was in Hong Kong at the Smart International Property Show, I met the owner of a South African estate agent, Kapstadt International Property, based in Cape Town South Africa.
They have some absolutely beautiful properties on their books and I wanted to highlight two of them.
Wembley House – 5 bedroom house in Cape Town
A magnificent Heritage home by Mello Damstra, an extravagant Dutch architect, built for Cape Town’s legendary Timber merchants, the Stoller family in 1923. Their love of wood was expressed exquisitely throughout the house reminiscent of the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles. Beautiful inlaid floors, teak panelling, grand staircases and the most beautiful teak doors and windows together with the grand reception rooms and sumptuous bedrooms make this a most unique and sought after home. The 600m2 main house on 3 levels has got 5 bedrooms and a wheelchair friendly apartment. You can entertain on a large scale with the excellent indoor outdoor flow to the pool area with its fabulous pool room and indoor barbeque facilities. This extraordinary home is set in a sculpted garden with your own private art studio and a separate yoga retreat above the 4 car garage.
Asking price is R17M plus VAT (approx. £1.125M)
