Enjoy it all! Take in the sights of Cape Town, laze on the white sand palm-lined beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, then simply retreat to the intimacy of this superb, contemporary haven in beautiful Bakoven. With its three stunningly appointed super-king size bedrooms, open plan living, chic interiors, landscaped garden with private pool, and access to Beta beach, this is the ideal luxury oceanside getaway for families or a group of friends alike.
Newly built Villa Pietra is set over three floors and benefits from an elegant contemporary style garden. Owner-designed, it reflects the simplicity and colours of the stunning setting - ocean views from two balconies at the rear, and the sweeping mountain backdrop from the balcony at the front of the property. Minimalist design, polished concrete floors, hues of grey and slate all add a super sleek and stylish feel. Plush sofas, comfy beds and cool styling create a luxurious yet fun atmosphere.
On entering Villa Pietra you can’t help but notice the spectacular quality of light, streaming through the large skylight onto the cantilevered smoked oak staircase. You’ll immediately want to take the stairs up to the large open plan dual aspect living room. For sociable, easy holiday living the modern, designer kitchen sits between the lounge and dining areas with a breakfast counter, convivial bar chairs and state of the art appliances. This is ultra-modern living in the most idyllic fashion with a wonderful combination of views to both the ocean and mountains.
Returning down to the entrance hall, take your pick of the two stylish bedrooms on this level. You may be drawn to the ocean view bedroom with its super-king or twin beds, large ‘sundowner’ balcony and en-suite shower room with double basins and walk in shower. A staircase from the balcony leads down to the courtyard garden and pool.
Alternatively, a stylish mountain view bedroom has windows towards the Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles, is fitted out with a wonderfully comfortable super king or twin bed and access to a cool walk-in shower room featuring luxury fittings, honed marble and brushed brass. Then take the stairs down to a beautiful ‘courtyard’ bedroom seamlessly linked by sliding glass doors to an exquisitely designed serene and sheltered, outdoor sanctuary - perfect for morning sun salutations! With its super king or twin bed, spacious en-suite bathroom complete with oval soaking tub, shower, and vanity you’ll feel yourself relaxing into the holiday mood. From this floor, you can explore the sheltered courtyard and garden beyond.
After a sun-drenched day on the beach, return to Villa Pietra via its private and secure beach access, pausing to wash away the salt and sand under the invigorating outdoor shower. Regroup on the spectacular upper floor, a glass of wine in hand to enjoy sunset over the ocean and the spectacular colours reflected onto the Apostles. Chat through the best moments of your day around the elegant eight-seater dining table, then retire to the lounge area and sink into the large and unbelievably comfortable ‘Cloud’ sofa. There is a woodburning fireplace for ‘cosying up ‘on cooler evenings in the Autumn and Winter months since this has been designed to be an all year-round holiday home.
It is a testament to the team of Capetonian architects and British owner designer who have truly thought of everything. Be sure to settle into your front row seat for the famous Cape Town sunsets……..Enjoy it all!
