The entire house is clad in blonde sandstone sourced in Lesotho, with a moat around the perimeter of the entire house. Sculptures are placed on pedestals within the moat, and appear to float on the water.
The house has been built around a central courtyard, with a pool in the centre and a pizza oven, making it ideal for intimate family living and entertaining. There are additional smaller lushly landscaped courtyards cut into the perimeter of the house, which bring in more natural light and further blur the spatial boundaries between inside and outside.
On the first floor is a study and a playroom, and the balance of the rooftop has two 100 square meter greenhouses in which organic vegetables are grown.
The interiors, by Tonic Design, are rich and cosy, with luxurious finishes such as backlit alabaster slabs in the kitchen, dark wood, various wallpapers and an extensive collection of art and artefacts.
