For us Bobbejaansberg epitomises an iconic Perfect Hideaway – great architecture, sumptuous interior design by super-talent Gregory Mellor and fabulously located in the gently rolling foothills of the Langeberg, just off road-trippers delight, Route 62. It has remained our co-founder, Helen’s absolute favourite since joining our rental portfolio seven years ago. This home, which appears to have dropped from the sky and nestled effortlessly into the beautiful landscape, is now available for you to make your own.
The outside spaces are as well considered, comfortable and pleasing to the eye as the interiors. The verandah, draped with wisteria, has a large fireplace for cosy evenings spent sunk into deep sofas contemplating the night sky. The dramatically positioned outdoor dining area is perched on a raised platform with staggeringly gorgeous views. The stone edged pool sits in the middle of the fynbos landscape with panoramic outlooks over one of the wilder peaks of the Cape Fold Mountains.
Bobbejaansberg’s kitchen was designed for a foodie – with a sunny Lacanche stove, a pizza oven and a solid French oak, James Mudge-designed kitchen island. Copper pots hang above the stove and wall-mounted shelves filled with Sarah Ord earthenware make whipping up a feast here an absolute pleasure.
Bobbejaansberg is much-loved by many return guests and on the holiday wish list of many more. It’s a hideaway that offers a total escape from busy lives, a place of reconnection with loved ones, a place to create those happy shared memories that make up the important things in life.
