Aptly named for its vantage point and also for the location of its visionary owners, North sits perched on the slopes of Signal Hill with an outlook that stretches across the city to the Indian Ocean, Robben Island, and far beyond. This swanky villa’s exclusive design focuses on stylish entertainment, superlative views, and ultimate relaxation with the recent addition of a sumptuous new spa room.
An impressive driveway leads up the hill to the front entrance that ushers you through glass doors into the hallway, featuring an attractively designed wine cellar housing the owners’ private collection. Stairs lead up to the next level where one of South Africa’s premier interior designers has created sensational open-plan living areas that are ideal for both entertaining and enjoying some laid-back relaxation.
The sensational kitchen is designed for interactive meal preparation with spacious countertops and generous food prep areas, spilling out to the lounge and views of the azure ocean. Large windows slide open to create a bar service area on the sheltered rear terrace. A dining space within the kitchen seats 6, with another dining area seating 10.
The beautifully furnished living and dining areas are filled with both local and European art pieces. Stackable sliding doors create a seamless flow from indoor to outdoor living spaces. The front terrace features comfortable couches, a barbecue, and seating for up to 12 to enjoy some al fresco dining. Sundowners on the terrace are a sublime experience as the light changes and the view below takes on another dimension. The solar-heated rim flow swimming pool and outdoor shower offer an impressive view out over the city, emerald Green Point commons, ocean, and beyond to Robben Island and the surrounding mountain ranges.
The swish new air-conditioned spa room features a professional massage bed, double shower, and steam room, and comes complete with Africology products and Gant towels. An additional TV lounge that can be closed off from the main living areas for additional privacy opens to another rear terrace to the spa area’s private outdoor relaxation area and heated plunge pool (up to 39°C) for year-round enjoyment.
The upper level is dedicated to five spacious en-suite bedrooms, all with exceptional designer furnishings, King-size beds, and exclusive imported bed linen. Bedrooms one, two, and three all have exceptional views to the front of the villa and sliding doors leading onto spacious, furnished terraces. The bathrooms are open-plan, one having both an elegant bath and shower and the other two featuring showers with a view. Bedrooms four and five boast large glass doors allowing for a view of the mountain slopes and forest to the rear of the villa. The doors open onto French balconies where peace and tranquility can be enjoyed. Both these bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers.
This exceptional villa with its quality finishes and sublime design is located in upper Green Point with easy access to the V&A Waterfront, the Atlantic Seaboard, and the city center. An array of excellent restaurants are only a short drive away if guests can manage to tear themselves away from the comfort of their villa and the mesmerizing views.
