Exceptional stand-alone family holiday home with private pool & garden and spectacular panoramic views in Camps Bay, Cape Town
Sun Lion Villa, with its original and inspired architecture, is a house built to maximize the appreciation of the landscape that surrounds it. Viewed from the terrace, a sweeping panorama encompasses the Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain, Lions Head and the Twelve Apostles. Built on an incline, the deck, swimming pool and garden overlook the coastline and setting sun. In keeping with the style of the rest of the house, the swimming pool has no square edges or corners, and blends into the surrounding shape of the private garden and lawn. A perimeter wall insures both pool and garden are protected from the gazes of neighbours and passers-by, allowing the guest total privacy.
The two main bedrooms have their own en-suite bathrooms. A bright and spacious semi-circular living room with pillars and a fireplace is the centre-piece onto which other multi-levelled rooms look, including an open space dining area and kitchen for socializing at mealtimes. The terrace is also an inviting location suitable for dining; whether it is for a sunny breakfast or for candlelit dinners or barbeques under the stars. A fifth or sixth guest can easily (and comfortably) be put up on the full-sized pull-down wardrobe double bed in the living room that can be opened and stowed away in an instant. The kitchen and bathrooms have recently been renovated.
Ideally located in one of the most desirable, secure and attractive bays in all of South Africa, Sun Lion Villa is a short 2 minute drive from the beaches and only 5 minutes from the city, reachable via Kloof Neck, which separates Table Mountain and Lion's Head. Most holiday activities, whether sporting, culinary, or night life, are all located within a few minutes of the house.
Please be aware there are steps up to the front door, so it is unsuitable for the elderly or unstable.
