Nestled in Waterkant Street, where the waters once lapped at the doorstep, lies this hidden jewel, originally built in 1830 for an English regiment to guard the castle. On two double erven stretching from Waterkant to Loader Street is this most extraordinary home, created by two dedicated collectors where every detail tells the tale of their love of India and old-world craftsmanship. It is a complete sensory delight where Eastern aesthetics mix seamlessly with old Cape architecture. The old house was kept as original as possible with its mahogany floors and lofty yellowwood ceilings and stinkwood beams giving it a tremendous sense of space. Either side of the entrance hall is a North facing bedroom and book lined library, before you step into the grand Voorkamer with a large Godin fireplace on a marble plinth. Inlaid marble floors with precious Jaisalmer stone set the scene in the imposing dining room with its massive handmade chandelier. The cherrywood kitchen is by RETO with top of the range appliances.

The downstairs bathroom with its hand cut marble floor and walls has discreet concealed lighting and underfloor heating. A modern Burmese Teak staircase leads to the main suite taking up the whole second floor with a bedroom cum lounge with a big Godin fireplace leading to a large wrap around terrace overlooking the roof terraces of De Waterkant towards the Waterfront and Table Mountain. The solid teak dressing room lead to the exquisite marble bathroom based on Mughal architecture with pillars and arches and a chiseled bath from one piece of marble with a dome of handmade mirror in a silver frame.

The resplendent courtyard tiled with hand edged Jaisalmer marble around the heated pool looks up to the exotic Mughal Tea House completely done in white marble, hand-carved in India, constructed in the Thar Desert, then dismantled and shipped to Cape Town. The entrance to the Tea House is through a beautiful old door with fine inlay work from Sindh and a huge old iron padlock and key. Opposite is the door leading to Loader Street with a sandstone carving from Durgapur below the step. The Tea House has lots of detailed carvings with jali windows and a hand carved dome weighing 12 tons. On the floor is an inlaid design in semiprecious stone including lapis lazuli. Hand carved Burmese teak frames the dome whilst skirting and corniches are hand carved teak as well. The ceiling rose in the dome is from an old Church in Goa that was demolished and the brass light fitting from an old Mughal building in Bikaner area.

Words dont do justice to this highly sophisticated urban sanctuary of peace and tranquility. We look forward to giving you the opportunity viewing this exotic home to make it your own.

Experience Cape Town City Bowl

Living in the CBD of Cape Town is unlike any other city centre. Table Mountain, Lions Head and Signal Hill cradle the City Centre, with mountain hikes and forests in easy access and it is within minutes’ drive to some of the world’s best beaches. Depending on which area in the city you live, the housing arrangements can vary from large leafy houses in Oranjezicht, to small studio apartments in the City Centre. Living in the CBD of Cape Town gives the best of both worlds as you're in close proximity to all amenities, as well as have nature on your doorstep.
