Welcome home to this sculpted sanctuary, where Boyd Ferguson, celebrated architect for some of the world’s most exclusive luxury game lodges and private residences, finds peace and quiet.
A beautiful reclaimed timber wall frames Boyd’s extraordinary home where design mirrors the environment. He describes his design ethos as moving from the head to the heart to create functional beauty with clean lines and simple forms as it co-exists in nature.
Filled with natural light this two-level home exudes an atmosphere of calm and serenity with its palette of raw greys, chalk and linen. Inside mirror panels borrow outdoor light reflecting energy into the vast interior spaces. From entering the front door one is humbled by the overwhelming beauty and simplicity of the home and its spectacular surrounds with Table Mountain just a breath away. One only becomes aware of the kitchen in the large open plan living area once you open the ingeniously concealed panels of bleached timber with its hollowed-out knot holes instead of handles. You will also find a second working kitchen and scullery cleverly disguised behind these panelled walls. The boldly proportioned main suite bedroom on the top floor with its serene bathroom leading onto the wide terrace running along the width of the house is too lovely to behold.
The second living room and sumptuous guest suite leads onto the level garden with a lap pool and outdoor entertainment terrace which includes a braai area. A large outdoor shower next to the Jacuzzi promises great fun and entertainment during our long summer days.
A private massage studio, cum study or third bedroom on the top floor has got direct access to the double garage. Behind the house is a completely separate suite for a student or a housekeeper.
This house has been designed with the ultimate living experience in mind. Completely private and secure with a sealed off perimeter, sheets of toughened glass and roller shutters to give a new meaning to “lock-up-and-go” but still having the joy of a large level garden with spectacular views of Table Mountain, the City Bowl and Table Bay.
Please contact us for a private viewing. We feel very privileged in marketing this iconic home and look forward to showing it to you.
Higgovale is a sought after, upper class suburb with some of the most spectacular views over the city and Table Bay. It is a green, leafy and sedate suburb on the steep slopes of Table Mountain and perched above the city, yet you are only minutes away from Kloof Street with it’s many bistros, restaurants and shops. The homes on Bridle Rd, Beulah Terrace, Rugby Road and Trek Road border on the Table Mountain National Park giving easy access to nature and Table Mountain.
Getting to the Clifton and Camps Bay beaches is a quick drive away over Kloofnek Road, and the V&A Waterfront and city centre is also easily accessible. For the climbers, there’s the Higgovale Quarry, which relatively unknown outside of the climbing fraternity, was once a shooting range. It lies just beyond Molteno Reservoir, providing some great slab/face climbs, all of which are bolted.
