This magnificent and luxurious coastal villa is located in Clifton, a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa.  The design brief for SAOTA architects was to provide a spacious residence that was open to the spectacular ocean views but also afforded privacy from neighboring properties.  In addition the owners wanted a garden to be created on the steep mountainside.  So does the Nettleton Residence 199 live up to expectations?

Poised in this apparently precarious position this spectacularly luxurious coastal villa certainly makes the most of the captivating ocean views.  In fact the clever ‘open’ architecture seems to bring the views right into the house.  Transparent glass walls reduce barriers, so that the connection between interior and exterior areas appears seamless.  The house is light filled, lofty and spacious, the extra connection with outside exaggerates this light and airy atmosphere even further.

Although built into a cliff the rear of the home opens on to the most luscious private garden.  Living areas at the highest point in the house benefit from views of this verdant foliage as well as the Atlantic Ocean.
