Bantry House is a magnificent villa nestling in the hills above the relaxed Cape Town suburb of Bantry Bay. In the shadow of the dramatic Lion’s Head Mountain this is a property on a majestic scale. An infinity pool perches on the deck overlooking a patchwork of rooftops. Decks and balconies on all levels reveal panoramic views of the mountains and the mighty Atlantic. Add in first-class service from your own butler and this is a villa where you can live royally.
High above one of South Africa’s finest resorts this is the perfect place to unwind. Bantry Bay is renowned for its combination of fine living and mild climate. Its relaxed streets offer plenty of opportunities to discover a range of shops, cafés and restaurants. The sandy beach is a tranquil haven protected by the Lion’s Head from the vagaries of the Cape’s breezes. As night falls over your hillside retreat, enjoy sensational views as the lights of Bantry Bay form a glowing mosaic.
Bantry House has been designed to provide a harmonious blend of indoor and outdoor luxury. Soft and subtle décor is embellished by daring dashes of color, dramatic artifacts and exquisite paintings. Comfortable sofas are arranged to give you superb views or to escape into intimate nooks where you can relax. Your every whim is catered for so you can choose to work out in the private gym, take a dip in the pool or simply imbibe the view.
The villa’s spacious bedrooms provide stately views overlooking the Cape coastline. From each of the four main rooms you can step onto your own secluded balcony. Inside, the cool, calm décor is enhanced by crisp linen and tasteful furniture and equipped with impressive bathrooms. These light and airy rooms boast traditional shutters to give you respite from the heat and absolute privacy. Primarily used as a study, the fifth bedroom converts seamlessly into sleeping quarters with a comfy double sofa bed.
From balmy Bantry Bay the very best of the Cape coast is within easy reach. Below you the sheltered beach is a delightful playground guarded from the wind by the Lion’s Head. Along the coastal strip, you’ll find the popular resorts of Sea Point and Camps Bay. Out to sea loiters Robben Island, infamous during Apartheid but now a fascinating day trip. Cape Town itself is just a short drive away, guarded by Table Mountain.
