Handpicked for you...

The Fortress at Misty Cliffs perches above the sea in the tiny hamlet of Misty Cliffs, just an hour from Cape Town. Originally built to resemble a fort, the creative mind behind the renovation has opened the house right up, with light coming in at every angle, telling a different story each hour of the day. He created a striking warehouse-style living space, the perfect canvas for his retro furnishings.

While the front of this home exposes itself to the endless seascape, the lounge and kitchen open onto the Moroccan tiled courtyard, completely protected by the mountain. This is where the inevitable entertaining, synonymous with owning a beach house, takes place. It is also a heavenly spot for those Sunday afternoon naps.

With decks on each level there are many nooks to escape to, or ‘pockets to pause’ as the owner describes them. ‘Friends have come for lunch and I’ve lost them to the meditation deck for a couple of hours’ he tells me. For others, the sea or mountain call. This is surfer’s paradise and the Baskloof Nature Reserve, behind the house, is a protected biosphere with hiking trails aplenty.

The serene master bedroom is richly textured with parquet floor, rib-and-block ceiling and of course has those views. Each of the three bedrooms opens onto its own courtyard and even the bedroom at the rear offers ocean views from its outside shower.With a sky-lit hammam-style wet room it’s clear that careful and clever consideration of space and light has gone into every aspect of this home’s transformation.

At Misty Cliffs, by some inexplicable meteorological magic, the cool sea air hits the shores to create a nebulous haze that transforms an already beautiful coastline into something quite otherworldly. Once the sun drops below the horizon, retreat to the comfortable courtyard to fire up the pizza oven and create a feast!
