Situated on a large stand with excellent views of the bushveld and Sandspruit River, this house embraces the outdoors through verandahs and protected courtyards. The clients, being from America, requested a home that could house extended family while having the Main Bedroom suite private. This led to the plan consisting of two bedroom wings joined by a generous combined living and dining space
The biggest challenge was to merge the client’s traditional American Colonial style with our more minimalistic and modern style, which resulted in a modern farmhouse aesthetic. Large covered verandahs flow seamlessly onto an outdoor deck and swimming pool area to the rear of the property. High ceilings with exposed trusses and large windows allow maximum natural light to enter the home while the deep-set verandas protect the home from the harsh African sun.
