Seated Buddha’s welcome you to the inner sanctum, where interconnected glass passages direct you to exquisite living areas; lazy lounges, TV den, bistro-style open-kitchen and diner, four en-suite bedrooms with outdoor showers, a massage/meditation sala and a gallery of art.
Hout Bay Mansion is built in traditional African kraal style with a Bali twist, by inspired architect Paolo Deliperi; a tranquil refuge where earth, wind, fire and water are all incorporated to amazing effect. Stone ponds and water features create a sort of Zen moat around the house, cruised by huge Koi who move in a living artwork of form and colour. It’s very calming & peaceful.
The multiple pitched roofs that make up Hout Bay Mansion are nestled in a natural amphitheatre of mountains, creating a sublime lightness of being. You feel the perfect Feng Shui as you imbibe the warm sunshine from the lap pool or sit under a brilliant night sky watching flames flicker in the poolside fireplace.
