Property for Sale

House 6, Broadlands Estate, Hyde Park. This architecturally designed masterpiece provides all there is about inspirational modern living. Functionally the house is arranged along a spine wall that defines a circulation route, providing access to each of the various spaces. Wherever you are, the emphasis is on a seamless link between open and covered space, hard and soft, natural and man-made materials. Situated on a half acre corner lot and tucked away in one of South Africa's most exclusive gated estate, this entertainer's paradise features:
  • This recently completed architecturally designed masterpiece provides all there is about inspirational modern living and is 1170m2 on a site of 2167m2.
  • The house is designed as a flexible living space that does not prescribe a particular lifestyle. It provides a devisable open plan living space that blurs the boundaries between indoor and outdoor activities. The house is inseparable from the design of the site as a whole.
  • Accommodation includes a living space that can be divided into a kitchen/family room, a dining/formal living space and study.These spaces relate to outside entertainment areas arranged on two levels. On the ground floor there are also a guest suite, home theatre, gym and guest cloakroom. The kitchen boasts a separate scullery, laundry and cold room.
  • On the first floor there is a pyjama lounge overlooking the double volume living areas, 3 children’s en suite bedrooms and the main en suite bedroom, with separate dressing room. By exploiting the changing site levels, each bedroom is provided with its own outside private deck and garden space. The children’s bedrooms are arranged around individual internal courtyards. Well-appointed staff quarters are situated above the porte-cochere.
  • Architecturally, the house uses a limited number of materials. Semi face brickwork is used both externally and internally as walls and floors and is combined with off shutter concrete and crisp white painted plastered walls. These materials work seamlessly between indoor and outdoor spaces. The layout of the house divides the site into a series of well-defined outside rooms, integrating the landscape into the total composition.
  • By the use of sliding shutters and brick solar screens the house remains cool in summer and warm in winter. Sliding partitions allow spaces to be divided and heated as required, minimising energy consumption.
  • The glazing to the double volume living areas is screened by brickwork that is articulated in ways dependent on the direction of the sun. The North winter sun is allowed to penetrate deep into the building while the summer sun is not. The Western light is restricted by a screen that scoops in the northern sunlight. Bedroom courtyards provide North sun to East facing rooms that are bathed in early morning sunlight.
