On one of the quietest streets of evergreen Constantia lies The Villas, a unique development of just two luxury homes that stand independently on generous grounds. Beautifully designed for contemporary country living, these are family homes for celebrating life’s occasions.
One of South Africa’s oldest suburbs just 15kms outside of Cape Town’s bustling city centre, Constantia juxtaposes quiet winelands living and the energy of a vibrant, cosmopolitan city.
Cape Town’s Governor, Simon van der Stel, established the Groot Constantia wine estate in 1685. Named to honour of his wife Constance, it remains operational today. The farm is now a provincial heritage site and the heart of this sought-after suburb that nestles in the Constantiaberg valley. Hout Bay is a short trip over the Constantia Nek pass in the west, and the peninsula coastal delights of Fish, Simon’s Town and Cape Point lie just to the south. The M3 highway links to the city, an easy commute to the north.
Unsurprisingly, the Constantia wine route that now includes a number of award-winning farms such as remains an attraction. One of these, Steenberg, is now home to the Norval Foundation and its unique galleries, research library and Sculpture Garden that offer a multisensory experience of art and nature.
Constantia’s green belts, open spaces and mountain trails host outdoor pursuits from horse riding and hiking to trail running and mountain biking. The suburb also boasts fine dining restaurants, sports clubs and gyms, top schools and modern shopping centres all in close proximity.
Renowned for its abundance of trees, farmlands and larger properties that offer space and privacy, Constantia homes are sound investments in family and out-of-town lifestyle.
By integrating the airy dining room, lounge and patio, the ground floor enthusiastically invites family and friends to gather and celebrate the extra-special moments found in each day. Recessed sliding doors allow flexible configuration of indoor and outdoor living areas depending on mood, occasion and weather.
With generous volumes of light and space, The Villas provides a modern minimalist backdrop that will perfectly showcase individual taste and style.
The surrounding natural aspects of mountain, green belt and established trees have been carefully considered, and inspire the graceful flow from the door right through to the landscaped garden and beyond.
The main bedroom suite offers tranquil refuge, featuring a spacious, spa-like bathroom with free-standing bath and a separate dressing and closet area.
