You cannot help but fall in love with this home, perfectly positioned right in the heart of the ever popular KwaZulu-Natal north coast suburb of Durban North.
Its modern take on Balinese-inspired architecture transports you to a different land. The family behind this property have clearly woven their travels and all their eclectic finds, artworks and chandeliers that come from those travels, into a space unlike any other. With unobstructed 180-degree views over the lush, tropical vegetation and sea beyond, Sophia’s Retreat nestles perfectly into its postcard-perfect backdrop.
Whether it’s relaxing on the wrap-around wooden deck or splashing away in the hot long summer months in the beautiful rim-flow swimming pool, you can’t help but feel that the bordering nature reserve is an extension of this home’s award-winning garden. Cutting edge green design has been the core focus in the conception of this tranquil garden with its soothing network of waterways, fountains and koi ponds
The imposingly beautiful African hand-carved front door leads you through the entrance area and into the living and entertainment area, complete with welcoming fireplace. Open-plan living is key, offering magnificent views at every turn and maximising the flow between interior living and outdoor spaces. With a vast master suite, an additional four en-suite bedrooms and a self-contained flat this is a home which easily lends itself to large gatherings of family and friends.
And once they all arrive, and you can be sure they will, you can feel confident that this is a home which will keep you and all your guests happy. With a study, gymnasium, heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi and pizza oven, there is both ample space and entertainment for every generation.
