Cape Glamour

Feature 11168508 | © living4media / House & Leisure | 19 images

Afro chic meets Zen in an interior designer couple’s home in Cape Town

Though the angular gables and curvaceously paned glass doors of this baronial mansion in Cape Town’s Constantia suggest historic origins, the house was actually built in the late sixties. The doors that lend such distinction once graced an old Dutch Reformed church. The couple spent nine months transforming the house into one that would accommodate a modern lifestyle within a traditional framework.
