Key features: Set high in the hills of Hout Bay with an elevated view of the harbour, sea and mountains, Maison du Sud is an embracing home offering a wonderful sense of place.
Imagine yourself at a crossroads of sophisticated culture, and style with virtual borders; a dash of hot and exotic North Africa, a smidgeon of Italy, a sense of Paris or Provence – and at every turn, your curiosity piqued about the origin of the artwork, the collectables and furniture.
Maison du Sud is an embracing home in many respects – literally and figuratively, extending to the way the home is designed, offering life at a pace you dictate.
Imagine secluded courtyards redolent with the fragrance of jasmine and shady patios and verandahs where a riot of cerise bougainvillea blooms in the heat. There are lawns and a pool house area, there’s a library and a piano in one room.
The invitation? Collapse elegantly into an armchair to read quietly or play your favourite Bach or Beethoven. But mostly, it is a house that understands family life and invites two couples with two or three children between them, to holiday here.
Designed with windows that catch light from all compass points, the house is set high in the hills of Hout Bay with an elevated view of the harbour, sea and mountains. You experience a wonderful sense of place from this elevation,
particularly while watching the weather roll in so that you may plan your day at home or explore the surrounds.
