We were blessed with a new house recently.

We have decided 2 years ago that we would like to move closer to our kids schools. Looking for a house in a security estate in the area was difficult since security estates were scarce and the houses which were for sale in the estates were so popular.

We found an available stand in an already established estate and decided to build. It was our 2nd time building and we were very excited.  We already knew the process and everything it involved.

We were introduced to an amazing Architect – Thomas Honibal from THARCHITECTS.  After a site visit and a meeting he showed us what he had in mind for our project and we just loved it!  Thomas Honibal oversaw the entire project from start to finish and it was a privilege and wonderful experience to work with him.  His work ethic, attention to detail and passion for architecture is out of this world!  It is an honour to live in a house designed by such a master!

The house consists of  4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.  The master bedroom has an on-suite bathroom and dressing room.   The guest bedroom is on the 1st floor with a veranda and on-suite bathroom. The house also consists of a linen room,  domestic quarters, guest toilet, kitchen, scullery, breakfast nook, dining room, tv room, pyjama lounge, north and south-facing verandas, a boma, swimming pool, a 3 car garage, storage room, garden store and a landscaped garden.

High volume ceilings and big windows ensure lots of light and a feeling of big open spaces. White painted walls and black window frames ensure a comfortable modern feel. All cabinetry are painted with a chalky colour which is in the same hue as the white walls to give a feeling of harmony. White plantation shutters and Caesarstone tops also feature throughout the house.

We are extremely happy with the end product. The house lives well, entertain well and exceeded all of our expectations.
