Invernmark Villa


Overview

The facade of this impressive
architecturally sophisticated five bedroom villa is clad in locally quarried
Table Mountain granite which is also used throughout to complement actual
boulders and blasted portions of the foundation rock. Striking evidence of the
use of the underlying stone is apparent when you enter the house to see the
rockface literally be invited in from outside as the rock projects through the
wide picture windows to be incorporated into a design feature. Here a spot-lit
signature inventive wine cellar consists of a pattern of pidgeon-holes
pock-marking the stone vault (a wine cooler cabinet increases capacity here).
Dark jarrah wood stairs and finishes throughout lend the property a substantial
though restful feel. The natural spring stream of the mountain can be seen
within the house as well as feeding a soothing water feature and supplying the
pool and jacuzzi. Other environmentally-driven imperatives include solar
panelling and a rainwater reservoir tank. On this first floor an integrated
sound system extends on to the balcony and sunlounger wooden deck. Sweeping
vistas from the terrace here range from Lions Head and across the pine tree
woods to Signal Hill to glimpes of the sentinel harbour cranes standing guard
on this side of Table Bay. There is an occasional guest bedroom and kitchenette
on this floor plus two guest bathrooms. The main living floor is reached by an
attractive part-supended glass sheet and jarrah wood staircase. An
orientally-inspired formal tranquility garden with seated buddha bordering a
goldfish pond watered from above lies behind a large glass screen. This focal
point is attractively lit at night. To one side of a stone real fireplace there
is a formal lounge with light brown suite and dining area (with an imaginative
Italian globe lighting fixture) while the open-plan kitchen and informal living
room area is across the landing. A balcony of extensive decking and garden
furniture is accessed by patio doors running the full length of the house and
incorporates a barbecue station with stone flue. This living area has a white
pebble-bed gas flame fireplace and wide-screen television while a large
L-shaped taupe couch centred around an interesting Balinese-style glass-topped
coffee table catches the eye. Gauguin and Matisse-style pictures are hung. The
proximity to the generously proportioned kitchen makes this an ideal
entertaining venue. There is also a guest bathroom here. The full-specification
AEG appliances kitchen (including
integrated coffee-maker, ice-dispensor and double oven with gas hobs) consists
of a long island counter and pale blue finished cabinets and effectively
extends to a separate scullery utility. (An outside utility room houses the
laundry machines together with a further fridge-freezer). This overlooks a
garden of indigenous lilies and mature trees from which an owl has been known
to hoot! Three elegantly slender tall glass vases decorate the kitchen counter
being typical of the tastefully refined decor and furnishing.

The master suite with walk-through
wardrobes is on the second floor and has an adjacent secluded deck and private
rooftop garden with irises. The overview from here is exalted. The en suite
bathroom features a large concrete tub filled by a broad waterfall-effect
tap. Garland swirls decorate the wall
while star cluster lighting is featured in the ceiling. Rectangular mirrors
complement wide oblong caesar stone washbasins. A chaise longe couch affords
fine views in this serene and restful space.

Another en suite guest bedroom on the third
floor with balcony is situated by a restful water feature diverted stream that
feeds the pond below; there is a herb garden to the rear. From the balcony here
the substrate rock again thrusts through to the garden. At the other end of the
landing is an office study room with views of Lions Head (brown organza
curtains dress the windows) with a further striking bathroom up steps on a
mezzanine floor. Like all bathrooms, it has underfloor heating and here a
travertine tiled beige shower area. Caesar stone basin finishes are
complemented by a large freestanding oval white stone bathtub. The atmosphere
created is one of tranquil repose.
