No name could be more apt for this amazing home with its fabulous unrestricted ocean views to the front coupled with its up close and personal views of Lion’s Head to the rear.
Jaw dropping ocean views stretching to the horizon out of every bedroom and public areas of this home give it a very special ‘wow’ factor. And if that’s not enough, it gets even better with its amazing views and easy walking access to Lion’s Head National Park right out of the front door. All this – just 10 minutes drive from the centre of Cape Town and less than 5 minutes from the beaches of Camp’s Bay.
The ultra modern luxurious 4 level home built over a very generous 500 sq metres of living space designed to take full advantage of the magnificent views and designed by one of Cape Town’s premier architects is located in an exclusive and quiet wind free area between Fresnaye and Bantry Bay.

The Views – One is lost for choice …. Espresso in the mornings on the balcony watching the ships go by, Gin & Tonics at mid-day on the Terrace waving at climbers on Lion’s Head, Lunch by the Pool watching the horizon or Cocktails on the Lower Deck watching a classical African sunset unfold– each day can be as different as you want it to be.
The Proximity – It’s enviable location means everything is on your doopstep – an early morning hike to Lion’s head (1 min), a mid-morning swim in the sea at Camps bay (5 min), Lunch in the Vineyards (Constantia 20 min, Stellenbosch 30 min, Franschoek 45 min), afternoon shopping at the Cape Quarter or the V&A Waterfront (10 min) and dinner in the city (10 min) – it doesn’t get better than this in terms of convenience.
