DESIGN & FINISHES
The character of all homes bear the signature of crafting captivating, contemporary interiors that incorporate the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Clerestory windows and glass sliding doors draw in an abundance of natural light and showcase the exquisite views of the surrounding Paarl-Franschhoek Valley. The open plan layout of each home is an entertainer’s dream and has been created to nurture shared moments between family and friends. Natural materials such as exposed timber rafters, off-shutter concrete and natural stonework, create a contrast with crisp, white plastered walls and modern joinery for a balance of textures that radiates comfort and sophistication. Large glass sliding doors open out onto green courtyards creating a seamless flow between elegant interiors and lush outdoor countryside.
