Property Pick - Architectural beauty in Somerset West

A home so beautiful that it looks like it jumped from the pages of a magazine in Somerset West, Western Cape with views of the Helderberg is our Property Pick of the day.


4 Bedroom House for sale in Somerset West, Western Cape

Standing on an erf just under 1500m², the double storey “Baumhaus” is 460m² in size and has four voluminous bedrooms, all en suite. The bathrooms have large windows, allowing you to soak up the views as you soak in the tub.

“Baumhaus” is ideal for entertaining. The living, dining and bar area has a concrete fireplace, and leads out through sliding doors onto a balcony with views, while the kitchen is a vision of white and chrome and features Gaggenau and Siemens appliances, designer sanware by Philippe Starck and Hans Grohe mixers.

A large wine cellar where you can store your trophies from the surrounding wine estates is reached via an industrial staircase that leads to an undercover entertainment area with a built-in braai, balau decking that extends to the sparkling salt-chlorinated pool, and a koi pond.
The manicured lawn with borehole rolls up to the boundaries of the property, which are set off by a hedge on one end and a slate wall on the other, and these structural elements help to lock the property seamlessly into its natural surroundings.

“Baumhaus” can serve as a primary main residence or a secure lock-up-and-go holiday home. An excellent investment, “Baumhaus” is so glamorous that it generates revenue as a film and photo shoot location.
