A brass and bronze custom-made volt like door gives access to this Victorian period building, constructed in 1856. You are greeted with a mixture of the old and new. Original Oregon pine ceilings which expands this home, many different colour permutations of lights brighten the eaves and ceilings, and a fireplace, with a 12 meter stainless steel chimney, with solid oak floors creates a mesmerizing atmosphere. The triple volume living area is perfect for entertaining and includes an open plan lounge, dining room, with a 4 meter expandable dining room table surrounded by Philippe Starck chairs, and a modern kitchen. A bar area is created with over a 100 year old cabinet, an old Victorian mahogany sideboard, with a marble top and Poltrona Frau bar stools in Ferrari red. With the owner having been a jet set pilot, an aviation theme infused with models of Tiger Moths and other aviation artifacts, including a rare propeller from an old aircraft, are part of this unique space.

A beautiful iron steal staircase speaks of steam driven locomotives and balances the stainless steel chimney. This is accentuated with the original church wall showing through, with steel and light bringing out the natural brick look. The staircase leads to a pajama lounge, which takes you into the spacious main bedroom suspended over part of the living area. There is a study off to the side, giving some private working space. A dressing room with ample cupboard space leads into an open airy bathroom, well designed with a bath and shower, his and her basins, an art décor table and Philippe Starck chairs. There is a second en-suite bedroom with wooden custom made shower, downstairs behind the living area and a third room which shares a guest toilet which completes this modern heritage and nomadic design home.

A walking distance away from the Cape Town Stadium, the Green Point Urban Park and Biodiversity Garden, Green Point Golf Course, Virgin Active Gym, shops and restaurants on Main Road and the Sea Point Promenade.

The property also includes a double garage and pool access as well as state of the art security.

R 65 000 per month for a long term rental.
