A brilliant vision of Afro-modern brutalism on the slopes of Table Mountain, this low-slung villa offers discerning lovers of architecture a stylishly secluded escape with sweeping views of Lion’s Head, the Twelve Apostles and out over the Atlantic Ocean.
Given its prime location – protected from wind among the foothills – Big Rock Villa is only a short drive from the restaurant and shopping scene of Cape Town central, including the iconic V&A Waterfront just minutes away and, further afield, the Constantia Wine Route offers exceptional dining, cellar tours and tastings in the country’s oldest viniferous region. For the more adventurous, nearby hiking trails offer the opportunity to explore the surrounding mountains and nature reserve, as well as close access to the famed white beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay.
The design of the home draws on the rugged terrain surrounding it, a finely tuned symphony of raw concrete, smooth timber and brushed steel form the backdrop for an impressive interior design scheme that champions dynamic indoor/outdoor living. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors completely fold away to fully welcome the unique terrain into the home, allowing for easy, sun-drenched days spent poolside, entertaining friends and family and enjoying cocktails at the bar as the sun dips below the horizon.
