About our home

This is a unique property, designed and built by a well-known South African artist, Tinus de Jongh in 1927. We renovated in 2009, so it is updated and modernised yet still maintains an old world feel of space and calm.

It is centrally located, in Rondebosch, a 10 minute drive to Cape Town City Centre/ V & A Waterfront & Table Mountain, 10 minute drive to the Cape Town Winelands, 15 minutes from the beach and on the doorstep of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, also a 30 minute drive to the historic Stellenbosch Winelands.
The house is in a large garden (3 600sq.m.) and has direct access to a large park and playing fields. We have huge shady trees and a deep swimming pool, with all day sun! Outside shower and gorgeous fruit, vegetable and herb garden. A huge patio & calming fountain!
This is a fun and relaxed house, with a lovely feel. It is tastefully appointed yet you can really kick back and not worry about breaking anything, the three boys did that already!! Having 10 people in this house is easy, simple and still leaves plenty of space. It is absolutely quiet, you can hear the birds tweeting... a private paradise to cool off in after a busy summer day in Cape Town!
