Top-rated beach villa for sale in Llandudno

One of the most prestigious coastal properties in all of Cape Town has come onto the market through Pam Golding Properties (PGP), located in a prime position right above the Blue Flag Llandudno beach. 

“Blue Horizon” was last year (November 2013) selected by the international publication Conde Nast Traveller as one of the “Top 10 Beach Villas” in South Africa. The spacious contemporary home occupies just under 1000sqm of land in a sheltered, private location adjoining a nature reserve. The property is on the market at R39 million.

 “Blue Horizon”, a luxurious home above Llandudno Beach, has come onto the market through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R39 million. The home was last year (November 2013) selected by the international publication Conde Nast Traveller as one of the “Top 10 Beach Villas” in South Africa.
PGP’s area principal for Hout Bay, Patrick Maingard, says the suburb remains one of the most exclusive in the city, thanks to its luxury homes, pristine beachfront and scenic setting at the foot of the famous Twelve Apostles mountain range. It is home to one of the highest concentrations of high net worth individuals in the city, including captains of industry and celebrities who enjoy its privacy and secluded setting.
“Llandudno marked its official centenary in 2013,” he says, “and to coincide with this landmark occasion, the local property market showed a notable upturn, with total sales by all agencies nearly doubling from eight properties in 2012 to 15 in 2013. In both years, PGP secured the highest priced sales in the area, including a four-bedroomed home in Fisherman’s Bend sold for R25.5 million in March 2012, a four-bedroomed home in Leeukoppie Road sold for R26 million the same month, and another four-bedroomed home in Leeukoppie Road sold for R21.8 million in April 2013.” (Source - Propstats)
Entry level pricing for Llandudno starts from around R7 million, which will typically secure an older home in need of some renovation. At the other end of the scale, super-luxury homes with excellent security and top-end finishes can fetch anything up to R50 million, depending on their location, size and views.
Blue Horizon represents just such a property, occupying a plot right above the beachfront, with unfettered views that can never be compromised. The empty plot was the last beachfront site available in Llandudno until its purchase in the mid-2000’s, and the home was built over a period of three years, reaching completion in 2009. The style combines Scandinavian simplicity and functionality with a palate of natural colours and contemporary materials, ensuring the home blends seamlessly into its pristine natural environment.

The home occupies a 1000sqm plot right above the beachfront, with unfettered views that can never be compromised.
“This is a genuinely eco-friendly home,” remarks Maingard, “with numerous ‘green’ features including state-of-the-art insulation, solar water heating, eco-efficient intruder-proof glazing, rainwater recycling and green waste disposal systems, as well as an automated grey-water irrigation system for the indigenous garden.”
The minimalist interiors are spread over two levels. The upper, entrance level includes an expansive living and dining area which flows though fully retractable sliding doors onto a deck running the entire length of the home. A large open-plan gourmet kitchen can also be found on this level, along with the luxurious master bedroom suite with sliding doors onto the deck. Other features include a loft library, a sheltered rear deck with plunge pool, and a free-standing studio.
The home’s lower level contains an additional three bedrooms, two of them en suite, plus a lobby and guest lounge, kitchenette and laundry. The open plan living areas lead onto another deck with a second swimming pool. “This space is ideal for guest use and would also make an excellent space for teenagers to enjoy,” says Maingard.
In addition to these living areas, the home also offers a wine cellar and extensive storage space. There is ample room for expansion with additional en suite bedrooms.
“This is quite simply one of the finest properties on the South African coast,” concludes PGP’s MD for the Western Cape metro region, Laurie Wener. “The site is private, sheltered and protected from encroachment by other buildings. It has its own private track to the coastal contour path, providing easy beach access, and enjoys spectacular sunsets as well as north-facing vistas of the ocean and mountains. Every conceivable luxury has been considered, from electrically-controlled skylights to WiFi and audio-visual wiring throughout the house, plus a hi-tech security system. The New York Times recently voted Cape Town as its number one place to visit in 2014, and Llandudno is surely one of the city’s most elite areas, with Blue Horizon as one of its most desirable homes. The discerning buyer in search of the ultimate coastal home need look no further.”
