It’s rare to find a serene sanctuary within the city limits. A place of calm that’s stylishly minimalist, magnificently spacious and seems to float just a little above Planet Earth.
House Sidmouth is a study in elegant simplicity, graced throughout with fixtures in natural wood, raw stone and granite, with walls of glass that effortlessly welcome the outside inside. And the views, well, you’ll be simply transfixed. Whether its waking up in the sublimely spacious master bedroom, and watching the morning light caress the City Bowl and Table Bay down below, or just enjoy the natural theatre of the iconic views of Lion’s Head and Devil’s Peak. All this, before you have even stepped out of bed. In fact wherever you are in this home, accompanying these endless views, is the magnificent embrace of Table Mountain. House Sidmouth sits proudly at the foot of the mountain.
Accommodation includes: Imported Italian, open plan kitchen, scullery and diverse living spaces; a fantastical double-volume dining area, a mid-century modern-style lounge with a cosy winter fireplace, and a relaxing contemporary family lounge. All flow onto the spacious wrap-around granite terrace, with a tranquil atrium garden and outdoor shower. Central to 2 of the outdoor terraces are impressive circular roof openings, beaming sunshine into the home throughout the day.
Up the floating staircase, there are 4 double bedrooms, all ensuite – one of which is self-contained – all have city, mountain or harbour views. There’s an additional pyjama lounge upstairs with an outdoor terrace where you can enjoy balmy evenings and the sun setting over Lion’s Head.
House Sidmouth being north-facing enjoys plenty of natural light. Positioned perfectly on a generous corner plot, it is set in a sweeping indigenous garden, with a sculptural pool that’s solar heated. There is back-up power, housing with 2 water storage tanks and the latest home security and cameras. The home is double glazed throughout and has a heat exchange affording further energy efficiencies. A free-standing studio offers the possibilities as a home office, gym or staff quarters. Everything is just so well thought out, secure and effortlessly in place.
Excellent private schools, a beautiful secure park and coffee shops are right on the doorstep, and this completes the offering. Access to the M3 is 5 minutes away for those weekend country escapes.
