Glen beach is one of the most elite enclaves along the Camps Bay shoreline. Nestled amongst the beach cottages is Glen Roche – a luxurious 3 bedroom Beach House, perfect for a holiday with style. This luxurious residence boasts an irresistible combination of style and simplicity. First impressions of this holiday getaway are of escaping to a Log Cabin along a secluded coast line. Layers of wood envelope this majestic hideaway just a short drive away from busy Cape Town. Wooden decks surround the house on all three levels.
From the entrance it becomes immediately apparent that the basic elements of nature have been accentuated and tied together to create a peaceful and tranquil ambience. Wood is the core structure and finish; water in the magnificent view; and open plan living creating a sense of air and finally log fireplaces for warmth and energy in both the main living area and the outside barbeque. The open plan kitchen overlooks the first floor, formal living room area. A large dining room table comfortably seating a party of eight is perfectly positioned to watch every sunset the endless views have to offer.
The Master bedroom, situated off the living room and entrance hall, is sculptured around a large boulder, now a feature of the en suite open plan bathroom. Stained glass brick windows filter natural light. Cool stone basins rest on warm wood cupboards. Underfloor heating and heated towel rails add an element of modern luxury to the natural beauty of the room. Large, exposed beams highlighting magnificent joinery add to the genuine character of Glen Roche. Old style sash windows juxtaposed with modern partitions of the master bedroom from the main living area add to the aesthetically pleasing elements which make Glen Roche so unique.
The symbiosis of natural elements and magnificent engineering are again expressed in the custom wooden staircase leading to the lower level. Sandstone floors line the second floor. The second, informal lounge with flat screen television and study area, lead off to the two additional bedrooms. Virtually identical, each room has a large double bed, en suite wash room and sliding doors to private decks outside. Natural earth tones blend both rooms to the rest of the house; large travertine tiles in the showers and soft sand stone tiles on the floor give each room an element of the sublime.
Glen Roche has another, completely self contained cottage on the plot, just before the main of the house. Comfortably large, this open plan room has it’s own bed and quaint washroom with shower. As a secluded beach location from which to watch the surfers master the waves along the sand bar of this exclusive alcove, Glen Roche is state of the art and one of a kind – a retreat most certainly to be enjoyed.
