Rising six stories with a dramatic rock backdrop and radiant panoramic sea views is a beachfront villa like no other in Africa. This extravagant retreat is an exclusive sanctuary overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Bantry Bay. Mwanzoleo caters to the discerning few who truly appreciate lifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s luxuries: the private villa was designed for the lifestyle connoisseur who demands the quality comforts of their own home, coupled with the convenience and amenities of a private hotel.
Mwanzoleo is widely revered as the finest property of its kind in Cape Town, developed with no expense spared by a consortium of aesthetically knowledgeable British and South African businessmen, for their own private use, who set out to achieve a warm, functional, relaxing holiday environment that lives in harmony with timeless design precision.
This exclusive villa is decorated with great attention to detail, using only superior quality furniture and fabrics, complimented by an important South African and international art and sculpture collection. Furniture includes pieces designed by the likes of Fritz Hansen, Charles Eames, B & B Italia and Erro Saarinen. The Ã¢â‚¬Ëœless is moreÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ philosophy is flirtatiously contrasted by decadent structural features.
The atmosphere is uplifting and inspiring with breathtaking panoramic sea views, flowing, open spaces with 6m high off-shutter concrete ceilings and magnificent light. With this modernist feel, Mwanzoleo incorporates impressive indoor water features, which introduce the calming sound of cascading water throughout the house. Glass flooring meets large slabs of vein-cut travertine and bold American walnut floors. The quality finishes and refined interior design allows for sophisticated entertaining as well as comfortable, secluded relaxation. Unwind in a glass mosaic rim-flow pool maintained at a constant 28 degrees Celsius.
Mwanzoleo is a Swahili word meaning Ã¢â‚¬ËœBeginning TodayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢; this comes from the ideology that each day is powerful and unique, and that one should ensure that life is appreciated to the fullest.
