Ville Topas is set on a 5 hectare small holding with stunning garden and pool
Villa Topas as the name suggests is a beautiful, exotic spacious home set between the vineyards in the Jonkershoek Valley. The buma-style architecture gives the home a unique African feel of structure blending in with the natural surround.
The Jonkershoek mountain provides the backdrop to this home with a view of the iconic Table Mountain to the west. The double volume roof gives the African feel of spaciousness which complements the large open plan kitchen, lounges and living areas.
This home provides the perfect accommodation for families or friends. The large windows bring in the beautiful garden and surrounding views providing the ambiance which is associated with fun filled days of relaxation and sharing meals around the barbecue. Or drinking a glass of wine whilst sitting on the outside terraces while the sun dips behind the mountain as the fire pit is being prepared and lit for the evening meal.
The large swimming pool is central to the outside leisure space with easy loungers on the lawn surrounding the pool and barbecue nook.
