This luxury residence is located at the small holiday resort town of Boesmansriviermond in the Eastern Cape. It lies on the banks of and overlooks the Bushmans River estuary. It is situated approximately 1km from the river's mouth. The erf's eastern boundary corresponds to the coastal high water mark of the tidal river - with direct access to the river from the property. Twice a day the tidal river pushes up sea water approximately 30km inland. The house's aspect is north-east, ensuring optimal sunlight exposure both in summer and winter. Its position is sheltered and it is well-protected from the prevailing south-westerly wind. The house is designed to accommodate the south-easterly winds that sometimes blow from the sea. The house was designed by the experienced and well-known local architect Francois Theron, and built by a building contractor, for himself, in 1986. He has been the sole occupant of the house during the past 30 years.
