Gavin Wilson’s intentions for the estate are clear: to craft a beautiful space in absolute harmony with the natural wonder around it. Infinity pool lines that curve gently along with the river; rooms that nudge the water’s edge; balcony’s and terraces that each embrace a new and diverse Elgin perspective and carefully curated architectural lines that beautifully suspend the villa in the majestic valley and vineyards it calls home.
The owners non-interventionist artisanal wine-making technique flows into the feel of the villa: a feat of modern architecture, designed with sensitivity towards the environment. The property is distinguished by nature, positioned in the Kogelberg Biosphere, which possesses 1654 plant species found nowhere else on earth. Guests at the villa are treated to a theatrical show of nature with sightings of rare Cape Leopard, African Fish Eagle, Cape Clawless Otter and Cape Eagle Owl between an array of outdoor experiences. This three-year-long labour of love has resulted in the achievement of award-winning wines and the beguiling lifestyle of an unparalleled countryside retreat.
This 22,000 sq. ft countryside architectural wonder boasts uninterrupted views of the vineyards, orchards, the private Applethwaite Lake, Palmiet River and the mesmerizing Elgin valley mountain-scape.
Extraordinary care and attention was employed when attending to the look and feel of each bedroom and living space, ensuring opulence, privacy and quietude.
The villa naturally lends itself to a relaxing family retreat as well as a decadent escape for adults looking for an extraordinary Cape Vineyard experience.
The exquisite design is such that clusters of guests may enjoy absolute privacy. Boasting 7 double en-suite bedrooms, each with private terraces, the villa can comfortably accommodate 14 – 16 people
As part of the Kogelberg Biosphere, the Vineyards is an integral part of the Cape Floral Kingdom. The unique biosphere plays host to 1654 plant species found nowhere else on earth. Amongst this immense diversity of flora, various species of fauna thrive, such as rare Cape Leopard, African Fish Eagle, Cape Eagle Owl and Cape Clawless Otter.
Since acquiring the Vineyards, the owners have removed alien vegetation from the banks of the Palmist River and Applethwaite Lake, planted over 1000 indigenous trees, introduced beehives to aide in pollination and installed nesting boxes for the resident population of Cape Eagle Owls.
Showcasing their home within the beautiful and diverse Elgin Valley is a priority for the owners. The abundant diversity and superior space offers guests a variety of activities during their stay.
This cool-climate valley naturally lends itself to beautiful walks in the romantic and misty mornings, horse-riding in the Kogelberg biosphere or on the nearby beach, wine-tasting by the poolside and orchard walks throughout the year.
