One’s first sight of the coastal area of Misty Cliffs will likely remain fresh in your mind’s eye forever. Through some meteorological magic, the cool sea air hits the shores to create a nebulous haze that transforms an already beautiful coastline into something quite otherworldly. Situated on the Cape Peninsula just, under an hour from Cape Town, 41 Misty Cliffs is a thoughtfully designed, contemporary, right-on-the-beach home, and it’s the perfect place to replenish your soul with nature’s splendid beauty.
The light, bright, high-ceilinged living space opens fully onto a huge wooden deck facing the sea, where the gently rolling waves provide the most relaxing soundscape. House decor features lots of white and natural tones lifted with flashes of colour in the delightfully retro pieces. There are deep, comfy sofas in both the living room and on the deck, imploring you to plant yourself down and take stock while observing the ocean’s ever-changing hues. Rather wonderfully the owner is selling the home furnished… which considering it has been featured in European style magazines is quite the plus!
With three double bedrooms and a sleeping loft this is a home where one’s friends and family can join you for blissed out holiday time together. Cape Point and the quirky shops and great restaurants of Simon’s Town and Kalk Bay are within half an hour’s drive, as is Boulder’s Beach where you can swim with miniature penguins. Surfers find themselves in seventh heaven at Misty Cliffs and most days will be spent between that balcony and the beach.
Keeping cosy on cooler evenings is a cinch, as the wood-burning stove heats the whole house up nicely. Downstairs the master bedroom has underfloor heating to thwart any chill factor, and along with an en suite, this room opens onto a private lounge leading to the pretty garden and the gloriously unspoilt beach beyond. Evenings here bring the most magnificent sunsets, and as darkness falls the lack of light pollution ensures you’ll be gazing at the Milky Way… your night-time dose of nature’s otherworldly beauty!
