    Modern Serenity :: The Mwanzoleo Residence :: Cape Town 

    Designed by Cape Town-based studio SAOTA (Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects) the Mwanzoleo Residence is the epitome of luxury villa. The spectacular Mwanzoleo residence is situated in Bantry Bay, Cape Town, South Africa.

    Rising six stories with a dramatic rock backdrop and radiant panoramic sea views is a beach front villa like no other in Africa. This extravagant retreat is an exclusive sanctuary overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Bantry Bay.

    Mwanzoleo caters to the discerning few who truly appreciate life’s luxuries: the private villa was designed for the lifestyle connoisseur who demands the quality comforts of their own home, coupled with the convenience and amenities of a private hotel.

    This exclusive villa is decorated with great attention to detail, using only superior quality furniture and fabrics, complimented by an important South African and international art and sculpture collection.

    Furniture includes pieces designed by the likes of Fritz Hansen, Charles Eames, B & B Italia and Erro Saarinen. The ‘less is more’ philosophy is flirtatiously contrasted by decadent structural features.

    The atmosphere is uplifting and inspiring with breathtaking panoramic sea views, flowing, open spaces with 6m high off-shutter concrete ceilings and magnificent light.

    With this modernist feel, Mwanzoleo incorporates impressive indoor water features, which introduce the calming sound of cascading water throughout the house. Glass flooring meets large slabs of vein-cut travertine and bold American walnut floors.

    The quality finishes and refined interior design allows for sophisticated entertaining as well as comfortable, secluded relaxation. Unwind in a glass mosaic rim-flow pool maintained at a constant 28 degrees Celsius.

    The villa is situated within walking distance from Cape Town’s famed Clifton and Camps Bay beaches as well as leading restaurants, street cafés and nightlife entertainment.
