Architectural beauty in Rooi Els

On the rocky north-facing point at Rooi Els on the False Bay coastline, looking across the ocean to Cape Point, Hangklip and the surrounding mountains this bold architecture with steel-frame structure with 360 degrees views, mindfully floats dramatically out from the 3.6 acres of dunes, above the fynbos and shoreline. 


4 Bedroom House for sale in Rooi Els, Western Cape

This award winning, Elphick Proome, glass, ash wood, natural stone and steel,“smart” home on the beach, took 5 years of skilful planning, artisan manufactured for this environmentally friendly masterpiece which boasts approximately 450 square meters of internal, minimalistic space, 46 metre long timber balconies surround the four sides of glass living space, four en-suite bedrooms, an elevated swimming pool and hot tub above the crashing waves of your own private peninsula where your daily vision is of whales, dolphins and seals and your front garden is the beach. 



The entire structure is clad in a series of electronically operated timber screens, which serve as veranda roofs when the residents are home and then drop down to form seamless security. 

Upstairs, you can choose an open “zen “ like space or you can choose to break up the living areas with wooden screens which slide across to separate the sections for privacy. 

Everything from the sleek touch press cabinetry to the invisible switches and plugs as well as the air conditioning, underfloor heating dials, plumbing and wiring...all controlled by an ipad...are a delight! 



Downstairs, there is a second entertainment level, gym, steam room, wine cellar, laundry and plenty of storage.

Choose to have everything open for those hot summer days or cocoon yourself in timber slats as if, sitting under a beach umbrella and being part of her unique gentle presence which nestles above the most unique floral kingdom in the world and enjoy this man-made extension of the landscape. 

Words cannot do this masterpiece justice...a home for the future!
