LUXURY LVING WITH VIEWS AND COMPLETELY OFF THE GRID
Two ultra-exclusive self-sustaining eco villas on the crest of Constantia’s highest north-facing hill.
ARC-1, the first of a new brand of ultra-luxury, technologically responsive developments which address the uncertainty of the times we live in.
Poised at the very top of Price Drive, high above Constantia, the homes are wrapped in the distant hum of the valley below and the sounds of the breezes across the trees of Table Mountain. The air is quiet, and the Northern aspect of the site affords wonderful sunlight, complete protection from the South Easter and an unparalleled view of the mountains and the Cape Town metropole as far away as Stellenbosch and Gordon’s Bay.
The family centred 4 -bedroom design gives a large family the space to rest, play, eat, work, study, grow and interact with these carefully laid out multi-function homes. Situated on a 4000qsm private estate.
The indoor courtyard and firepit is a grandiose entrance to the home. The living space offers 4m floor to ceiling height. All the technology incorporated into the house is designed to be functional yet discreet.
Double glazing through keeps temperature in and sound out and clever use of passive shading and sliding shutters makes managing the SA sun a breeze.
A serious solar system, giant fireplaces, gas & convection cookers, optional AGA stove and pellet boiler, heat- pumps, water-based floor heating and hot water battery system.
These luxury homes come with extensive permaculture food gardens, indigenous planting and carefully chosen companion plants to provide all the pest control, nitrogen fixing and protection your garden will need to thrive. Multiple fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, kitchen and medicinal herbs, vegetable and salads will be planted in the extensive gardens enjoyed by each home.
Boreholes and a water treatment system provide you with your own water supply, always available.
