The perfect second home in South Africa
Built in typical Western Cape farmhouse style, with whitewashed walls, shuttered windows, and a wide, covered patio, this luxury home in South Africa is part of an exclusive gated development on the oldest wine farm in the Cape Peninsula. Residents of Villa Steenberg have access not only to the estate's superb award-winning winery, but to a five-star hotel, a luxury spa, an 18-hole championship golf course and a club house.
Villa Steenberg sits in an enviable plot opposite one of the course fairways. This property in South Africa offers three distinct outdoor areas: a courtyard, a lawned garden and a pool terrace surrounded by a wall for privacy.
The interior is a luxuriously comfortable home-from-home, flooded with natural light. The open-plan reception room has a sitting area, furnished with smart leather armchairs and a delightful window seat, scattered with brightly-coloured cushions in fabrics inspired by the Cape landscape. The gracious dining space features a splendid crystal chandelier and upholstered chairs. For less formal meals, there is an outdoor dining area on the breezy terrace.
Bedrooms are elegant and beautifully finished, with large freestanding baths and soothing décor.
The luxury villa particularly appeals to golfers. Known for its hybrid plan, the course offers traditionalists the opportunity to 'bump and run' in the rough around the greens, and to meet the challenges of strategically placed bunkers and water hazards. On the other hand, there is so much to do and see in and around the estate, not to mention in the wider area, even the most enthusiastic golfers might have trouble finding the time to tee off.
The Steenberg Estate is set among the rolling vineyards of the Constantia Wine Valley, on South Africa's Western Cape. The Cape is one of the country's most beautiful regions, offering long stretches of sandy coastline, sun-drenched vineyards and wild, rugged mountains.
