Architectural masterpiece for sale in Paarl

An ultra-modern home with an eye-catching design and spacious open-plan living areas has come onto the market in Paarl. 

The property is located in L’Ideal Close Estate, a sought-after gated community directly above the grounds of Paarl Girls’ High School. Occupying an erf of over 1000sqm, it is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties (PGP), priced at R10 million.

PGP’s area manager for Paarl, Surina du Toit, says L’Ideal was established in the late 1990’s, with the first homes being built from around 2000. “The community includes a total of 22 erven, of which only a handful are still vacant,” she says. “The majority have been completed with elegant modern homes, most of them enjoying magnificent views of the valley and surrounding Drakenstein mountains. There is a firm emphasis on secure family living, and the area is particularly popular with families whose children attend the acclaimed Paarl Girls’ and Boys’ high schools. Being located in the southern part of Paarl, it is also conveniently positioned for access to the N1 highway.”

The home currently for sale was designed by architect Christof Albertyn, who was given virtual carte blanche by the owners to create his artistic masterpiece. The result is a spacious home with striking modern lines, including soft curves, natural wood and immense expanses of glass to maximise the light and views. The property looks directly onto the fields of Girls’ High and residents can enter the school grounds directly through their own gate.

PGP agent Adri Holm says the exclusive home has some 600sqm of living space, including six bedrooms - five of them occupying one level and a sixth located separately, ideal for guest use. “Although this house is a work of art, it is still a very practical and comfortable space, with easy flow between the living areas,” she says. “There is also superb flow from the indoors to the outdoor entertainment areas, including a pool deck with panoramic views. The kitchen echoes the curved lines of the home and has a practical design that places everything within easy reach of the cook, without feeling cramped. While the design may be ahead of its time, this ultimately remains a very warm and liveable family home.”

Other features include an indoor braai area, air-conditioning and under-floor heating, and full staff quarters. Garaging is provided for three vehicles and there is computerised irrigation for the garden. The home has an alarm system and intercom.

Holm says the property will appeal to the discerning buyer who wants a unique home in a prime location, combining top-end style and luxury with relaxed family living. “This would be an ideal home for a large extended family, or for those who entertain guests frequently,” she says.
