Set well back from the street and slightly elevated
on the block, this classically styled Cape Dutch
home is a handsome and dignified addition to
the established streetscape.
The owners requested a low-maintenance,
double-storey home that was individually and
classically styled, with all bedrooms upstairs and
the opportunity to add a pool in the future.
A portico with wrought-iron gates on the
central axis of the house provides an attractive
and formal entry to the home.
All zones in the home radiate from the
generous entrance hall, which also provides
a glimpse to the rear garden.
The stairs to the upper level are discreetly located
to one side of the entrance hall, and lead to the main
suite, family bedrooms and rear balcony.
The dining room has bi-fold doors on opposite
sides, which extends the space across both the
enclosed courtyard and the alfresco dining.
The kitchen and associated casual meals area
are designed to allow easy circulation, comfort
and convenience at the hub of the living areas.
The overall design offers a transparency and
harmony between the house and garden that fully
integrates the home with its site.
