Located in Hely Hutchinson Avenue in Camps Bay, the property is situated on the face of the 12 Apostles mountain range, which allows one to indulge in the panoramic views of the ocean and mountains.

The ground floor consists of a studio apartment, two store rooms, and garage – that have direct access to the house with a staircase, and the second floor “welcomes you into an expansive, dream living and massive entertainment terrace”.

“The terrace creates a warm ambiance with its natural wooden finishes, perfect for outdoor entertainment, maximising the mountain views. This flows effortlessly through to the lounge and kitchen completed with Rhodesian leather granite finishes,” Effendi says.
