Mwanzoleo residence is an impressive looking holiday home located in Bantry Bay, Cape Town, South Africa. Described as “the finest property of its kind in Cape Town,” the Mwanzoleo vacation home is staffed and can be booked all year round from $3,500 to $18,500 per day, depending on the season, with a minimum stay of 5 days.With five bedrooms and five bathrooms, the 11,830 square foot house designed by Cape Town-based studio SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects is perfect to accommodate up to 10 people.
The property had an existing house, which completely under-utilized the site’s fantastic characteristics. The brief called for a dynamic response to capitalise on the site, creating an environment where the young family could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle offered by the site. This outdoor area is protected from the prevailing winds, and enjoys views of the sea, and more immediate views of large boulders to the South. The clients were eager to utilise every possible area of the site, yet ensure that they maintained privacy in this dense part of Bantry Bay, where sites are fairly small and owners typically maximise their allowable building envelopes.
