A dream destination for holidaymakers who love to entertain, Under Milkwood occupies prime position at The Heads on the edge of the Knysna lagoon. A stroll through the lush, indigenous, lower garden provides direct private access to the beach, although you might find it hard to leave this expansive, luxuriously appointed property with its vast outdoor entertainment area and stunning pool.
Did we mention the pool? A large infinity pool with an electronically operated safety cover, it was named 2016’s Pool of the Year by the National Spa & Pool Institute of South Africa (NSPI). What’s more, it’s surrounded by an expansive wooden deck with an outdoor shower and sunbeds, flowing to the perfectly shaded outdoor bar counter and dining area, complete with a charcoal barbeque, open gas barbeque, lidded gas barbeque and wood-fired pizza oven.
The interior has been designed and decorated to bring the outdoors inside, making the most of the house’s breath-taking lagoon and tranquil garden views, and maximising its abundant sense of light and airy spaciousness. Sea and sky blues complement warm wood and stone tones, with seascapes and beachscapes adorning the walls. However, a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and sumptuously comfortable furnishings ensure cosiness even on chilly winter evenings.
