A brand new, 2014 built, modern home situated on an elevated position in the heart of Noordhoek, overlooking the ocean, mountains, horse paddocks and vineyards. The best of what is on offer in incredible Noordhoek, a rural treasure 20min from Cape Town.
We have recently designed and built our dream home that we are looking to let out during holiday periods. This home is architecturally designed to provide clean, open-plan and spacious living, with wooden bamboo flooring and double story glass windows to make the most of the stunning views that surround you. The modern architecture is balanced with a warm and cozy interior design, which makes it hard to want to leave this little patch of paradise.
The house is divided into two main wings, the ‘sleeping’ wing complete with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and the ‘living’ wing; a double volume living, dining and kitchen area that can completely open up on to the outdoor entertainment area on a warm, sunny day. An open mezzanine above the kitchen also features a large open office space, which can be used as a second lounge area. The house sleeps 8 guests in total and is perfect for those who appreciate modern, sustainable design and relaxing comforts.
The two bedrooms upstairs are complete with a king size bed in one and pull out double bed in the other. Both have their own private decks (with stunning views) and share one large bathroom, complete with a double head shower, large bathtub and toilet. The two bedrooms downstairs both feature a queen size bed and share a bathroom, complete with a shower and toilet. An additional separate guest toilet is also available downstairs.

The benched barbecue area offers the perfect place to sit with a glass of local South African wine or enjoy a lazy meal, whilst watching one of the many stunning Noordhoek sunsets. Noordhoek faces west and one can expect a spectacular, colourful sunset on the ocean almost every night.
Noordhoek as a Holiday Destination Location:
Noordhoek is a place where horses are almost more important than cars and the lifestyle of the residents is tranquil, relaxed and unhurried. We call our home here The Nook, as it stands in its own corner at the end of a safe cul de sac and provides us our perfect hideaway from the rest of the world. Noordhoek is a great base to explore all that Cape Town and the beautiful Cape Peninsula have to offer, combining the proximity to all major attractions with a peaceful, rural charm. In Noordhoek alone, you can choose to walk or ride a horse along Noordhoek’s 7km white sandy beach (which is located 2km from our house) or bike up Chapman's Peak (one of the world's most beautiful coastal roads) if you’re feeling active. For those relaxing moments, you can watch the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean from our deck or spot an enormous variety of birds from the nearby Silvermine Nature Reserve. And when you’re feeling peckish, take a 1km stroll down to the Noordhoek Farm Village for breakfast or lunch in one of their several excellent eateries, or simply to browse around the many local art & craft shops on offer.
