Otto de Jager is not only one of South Africa’s most sought after bespoke event planners, he also happens to be the proud owner of this magically eclectic Cape Town home. Otto has lovingly transformed this 103 year old semi-detached Victorian house into a serene and sanctimonious retreat for all who wander through its doors.
The house is located in the affluent and wonderfully central suburb of Greenpoint, mere minutes away from the beach, mountain and a wild selection of the city’s best restaurants, boutique shops and charming cafes. Otto’s style is both unique and utterly transportive, with its heavy wooden accents, white walls, rich fabrics and carefully curated combination of old and new, this home holds a special ethereal quality. Each artefact in the space seems to have individual meaning and value, seemingly placed in a particular way to not only appear starkly beautiful, but to evoke something within its viewer. The abundance of antique reads and Otto’s magnificent collection of religious iconography further adds to the pious and transcendental quality of this special space. The grand and romantic master bedroom opens up onto a little vintage balcony, perfectly fitting for morning coffee and contemplation amongst the green of the trees. The kitchen is the beating heart of this home, an expansive open-plan room to cook, eat, drink, converse, philosophise with beloved family and friends. The home boasts its original fireplaces, all in working order for languid after-dinner brandy accompanied by a roaring fire.
This beautiful home offers its guests a truly meditative escape; it is without wifi, television or any other cumbersome modern-day distractions. If you’re looking for a resplendent, interesting and meaningful living space to switch off and reconnect to yourself and your loved one’s, Otto’s house is the blissfully ideal retreat.
