Stellenbosch, Cape Town, South Africa
Recently renovated, this two-hundred-year-old Cape Dutch Homestead was the original home of Oldenburg Vineyards. Located in the Banghoek Valley amongst lush gardens and scenic mountain landscape, The Homestead maintains a high level of privacy thanks to its dynamic natural features. Drive ten minutes to the East, and you’ll find the university town of Stellenbosch, home to many of South Africa’s finest restaurants, and the current home of Oldenburg Vineyards. With six luxurious bedrooms, a spacious interior layout, and a vast estate, The Homestead is the perfect home base for South African exploration. Popularized by Dutch settlers in the seventeenth-century; The Homestead displays classic Cape Dutch architecture with its whitewashed walls and dormer windows. Inside, the white-theme continues, but with a modern twist. Straight lines, an open-concept floor plan, and integrated state of the art appliances and electronics usher The Homestead into the new age. Every room is outfitted with designer furniture, contemporary art, and windows that frame picturesque mountain views. In the kitchen, extra-high vaulted ceilings add to the spacious atmosphere. And in the living room, the fireplace reminds guests of simpler times. At dinner, The Homestead has seating for twelve in the formal dining area and at the alfresco set on the terrace. Outside, the generous lawns, gardens, and landscaped areas are perfect for afternoon strolls. And, the swimming pool is a great place to relax and beat the afternoon heat. Back inside, The Homestead comes equipped with an espresso machine, air conditioning, television, an office area, and Wi-Fi. And, the villa features a lengthy list of included services and amenities. Nearby, in Stellenbosch, you’ll find incredible locally-owned restaurants, and plenty of wine tasting rooms in the many vineyards on the way. One unique restaurant in town is Zevenwacht Picnic baskets, offering lunch baskets to be enjoyed on their sloping lawns that overlook a nearby lake. For bustling city-life, travel about an hour to Cape Town where you’ll find a wide range of shopping, dining, and nightlife. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.
