Luxury Franschhoek Villa

The property is built in the classic Cape Dutch style, complete with thatched roofing, and is regarded by many as one of the most remarkable in the area. 16 Cabriere has spectacular views of the mountains and also overlooks a beautiful fruit and wine farm.

The house has four beautifully appointed suites and a massive 750m2 (7500ft2) of living space. An additional bedroom could be made available for a nanny or extra children. The property is a two minute walk from the main street in Franschhoek with its shops, art galleries, bars and restaurants. It offers the combination of arresting vistas, peace and tranquillity plus easy access on foot to the village centre.

One enters the courtyard through gates designed by local artists Andrea Desmond-Smith and Kobus Stander, past the mature poplar tree and through a pair of double fronted wooden doors into the main hallway. To the left is the Garden suite and the spacious living room with surround sound satellite TV and DVD player.

Ahead is the staircase and a cloakroom with a mural by Andrea Desmond-Smith. The stairs lead to the two upstairs suites, each with its own dressing area. Both of the upstairs areas have spectacular views; the south-facing suite has a balcony overlooking the garden and orchards, while the other suite looks over the pool to the Mont Rochelle hills and vines.

To the right of the entrance hall is the spacious living area, comprising the fully-equipped kitchen with butler’s pantry, along with the dining and drawing rooms. Beyond these, one finds the north wing with a yoga room and the fourth suite which overlooks the 11mx4m solar heated swimming pool. From the kitchen, there is access via floor to ceiling doors to the covered Braai (BBQ) area next to the pool. The dining room also has floor to ceiling doors which open fully out onto the sizeable outdoor patio. This creates a huge space for easy entertaining.

The house comes inclusive of breakfast and butler service, from the wonderful Simba.
