Opulent Penthouse Living
Dogon Group Exclusively presents:
Penthouse living in a luxury building, centrally located in the heart of Green Point. This magnificent double-storey home was designed with absolute passion, love and attention to detail using high-end local and imported, bespoke designed finishes and luxury amenities integrated throughout. Featured on Top Billing and in Visi magazine, it's a penthouse above all penthouses. A rare find.
Perched on top of a 5-star French-style hotel-turned-residence building, this home was transformed from a mere shell into an exceptional masterpiece. Insulated beyond a 5-star energy rating by closed-cell polyurethane foam sprayed within the walls, ceilings and roof throughout, the apartment's climate is expertly maintained with excellent waterproofing and soundproofing.
A grand entrance invites you with a warm welcome into a home influenced by local and European style. French and Cape Dutch architecture are married by finishes such as solid-oak herring-bone flooring, "klompie" brick-work, and low-line wall panelling further infusing the apartment with an elegant calm. Contemporary and eclectic elements like copper fittings, leather "riempies", bare metal, and bronze additionally blend old and new world charm.
A self-contained guest room with a separate entrance, en-suite bathroom and kitchenette, integrated with Gaggenau appliances, is connected to the penthouse and is ideal for a butler, nanny, or guest. A large scullery with extra pantry provides access to these quarters from within.
At the heart of an expansive open-plan kitchen, living and dining area, is a handcrafted Italian Valcucine kitchen complete with German integrated Gaggenau appliances: coffee machine, fridges, freezers, eye levelled ovens, stove tops as well as a Liebherr Vinidor dual temperature wine cooler. The kitchen is a unique combination of traditional hand-made, solid-timber cabinetry elements blended with Valcucine's unique, pure glass range. A great space for living and ideal for entertaining.
The dozens of exquisite French doors are all European-style, double-glazed units with seals and tilt-turn mechanisms for seamless operation. Upstairs, the elegant dormer arches over the doors are lit by LED lighting integrated within the marble flooring below. All blinds are automated. An eco-friendly Piazetta pellet fireplace will cosset you while you sip your wine and watch a winter storm approach from over the ocean.
From the living area, glass stacking doors give access to the glass enclosed patio. Automated roof and blinds give you freedom to adjust as you please. From here you can access your expansive rooftop garden terrace to enjoy uninterrupted views of the cityscape and ocean or lay in the sun on the grass before taking a dip in the eco-friendly wetland pool.
The garden comprises predominantly succulent and indigenous plants for low maintenance and the pool is accompanied with an automated pool cover (Grando). Under the metal gazebo is the perfect spot to sit and soak in the 360deg. panoramic views.
All 5 bedrooms, as well as the study, offer unique and individual themes inspired by the Green Point surrounds - stadium, park and ocean - and are coupled with en-suite bathrooms. Underfloor heating is present in all bedrooms and bathrooms. Unique features include bespoke Gregor Jenkins table vanities.
Spanning over two floors, around a double volume space, is a sophisticated and timeless library infused with contemporary components such as custom-built wooden boxes to house books instead of ordinary shelves. An arachne chandelier, suspended from the central library void, is one of the selected edgy touches to the overall classic look. Neighbour to the library is the Stamp Room/TV-snug which could function as a 6th bedroom.
A gracefully curved staircase is located alongside the entrance and has a metal balustrade with hand woven leather "riempies" adding a uniquely South African touch and softening the look of the metal framework. Nestled beside the stairway is an almost-warehouse-style platform-lift providing an alternative ascent to the upstairs, extended library area and 3 bedrooms.
A walk-in storage and utility room is accessed by a secret fire door concealed behind bookshelves in the passageway. This room houses the UV filtered water, ventilation and central vacuum cleaning systems. The soundless AC system distributes clean, hot or cool air throughout the home - independently to each room.
The master bedroom features a double door entrance and passageway with ample cupboards - a subtle touch of leather handles on the cupboards is another example of crafted attention to detail. His-and-hers en-suite bathrooms, each with its own integrated dressing room, are a daily luxury, along with a mini kitchenette for added convenience. Majestic ocean views across the Atlantic inspire a nautical theme for this room with palettes of blue through texture and wallpaper. A cluster of fibre optic lights are integrated into the ceiling for a starry night sky after sunset.
Other special features include night lights in bathrooms and main passageways, fire alarms throughout, copper cylinders and pipes used in all hot water plumbing, soundproof bedroom doors and 2x tandem parking bays for 4 cars in the garage area.
A visit in-person is needed to truly appreciate the majestic beauty of this spectacular home. Viewings by appointment only.
