Recently completed, the style of the house sets a new trend in Afric-Chic design by combining sub-Sahara architecture with touches of Art Deco. The thatched roof lines were inspired by bedouin tents commonly seen in the desert. The colours are vivid and bold. It’s unique.

I'm married to Pat who is from Devon England. I was born and raised in Alberta. We are now living on farm outside Cape Town. I have three sons all living in Calgary Alberta and doing well.
The first and most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ, then its my wife Pat and my family and friends. We watch just about all the Super 15 rugby games with friends followed by a braai. We mountain bike over the Meerandal Wine Estate. We travel Southern Africa a lot and the most fun was jumping into the Devil's Pool at Vic falls...what a buzzz! A Game Park (Kruger, Pilansberg, etc.) is always fun, especially when we see the big cats. The form of relaxing I like best is listening to modern country music...the lyrics are so good...things of the heart. I normally read for information or factual history novels. I do, however, enjoy a good romantic comedy. I good laugh is so refreshing.
