Designed by architect Frank Böhm, Pebbles is a lifestyle triumph. Making the absolute most of the fabulous ocean views, living areas both upstairs and down have floor to ceiling windows, ensuring the whole affair is drenched with light throughout the ever-changing seasons. “In winter we love to build a roaring fire and watch the storms and huge waves roll by.” the current owners enthuse. This beach house for sale in Western Cape South Africa is literally a thirty-second walk to the long, oft-near deserted beach at Kommetjie on the Cape’s Southern Peninsula. That is unless surfs up… then you’ll find it rather busier, as Kommetjie’s renowned waves, Outer Kom, Inner Kom and The Ledge serve up some lively action. Naturally the village attracts the surfing fraternity, which is possibly why it emanates such a friendly, laid-back vibe. And in fact, the house is named after the surf spot, Pebbles, which sits right in front of the house.
Frank Böhm clearly took the time to understand the prevailing winds on the plot before going ahead with the build. Its position offers the huge advantage of being totally sheltered from the south-easter, and undoubtedly provides the best sunset-viewing terrace in the whole of Kommetjie. On the back deck you’ll find a Jacuzzi, the perfect place to unwind and melt those muscles after an active day in the ocean.
Just 40 minutes from Cape Town, Pebbles works brilliantly as a primary home or a weekend bolthole. Nature lovers will embrace the abundant birdlife along with whale and dolphin watching and the chance to breath in healthful negative ions each day… this is the stuff of a low-stress life. With Kommetjie’s close-knit, welcoming community, and reputation as an incredibly safe spot to stay, Pebbles offers a charmed and charming lifestyle in Western Cape, South Africa.
