Experience Sea Lion Villa in Fresnaye

SEA LION – no name could be more apt for this amazing home with its fabulous unrestricted SEA views to the front coupled with its up close and personal views of LION’S Head to the rear.

Ultimate Luxury

A Greg Wright designed architectural masterpiece that has featured in several magazines, Sea Lion is one of Cape Town’s exceptional luxury villas.

Located in “wind free” Fresnaye, one of Cape Town’s most prestigious neighborhoods, Sea Lion sits on the very edge of Lion’s Head National Reserve with unparalleled views of the Atlantic Ocean & Robben Island from every single room.

Its 725 m2 of space feature generous amounts of textured granite, warm walnut and luxurious marble which form the neutral backdrop for its vibrant contemporary interiors and its impressive collection of art from across the globe.

Superb attention to every aspect of its interior detail ensures that each and every area of the home and its ensuite bedrooms are individually distinct & luxurious.

Stunning Welcome

A stunning laser cut steel and glass entrance forms the starting point of a journey into a luxury villa epitomized by quiet interior garden spaces and large picture windows with ocean and mountain views.

The views of the Atlantic Ocean & Robben Island from every single room through-out the house are simply unsurpassed and provide stiff competition to the equally dramatic views of Lion’s Head from many areas of this Fresnaye luxury villa.

A dramatic floating staircase (or a lift if you prefer) takes you down to a living area covering over 300 m2. Large sliding doors recess completely to allow the outside to blend in with the inside allowing easy access to the pool, the gym & sauna as well as the state of the art Braai (barbeque). A unique feature of Sea Lion is that every single bedroom and bathroom enjoys fabulous ocean views.

Entertain in Style

Enjoy an intimate meal at the comfortable breakfast bar, a martini or a gin & tonic at the contemporary bar counter or a formal dinner party for 10 at the stunning solid walnut and copper inlaid dining table.

The ‘Black & Copper’ kitchen boasts top-of-the-range appliances skilfully hidden behind beautiful joinery. Luxury cutlery and dinnerware, La Crueset serving dishes and Riedel wine glasses will allow you to entertain in style.

You can also choose to drink or dine on one the many landscaped terraces – with a view of the Atlantic Ocean, Lions Head or both. Flat Screen TVs , Bang and Olufsen and Bose sound systems ensure that every room has a premium viewing and listening experience.

Living and Dining

The ground storey has exquisite ocean views and contemporary furniture with vibrant bolts of colour. The living room has ample comfortable seating with views over the Ocean & Robben Island and an internal garden with a water feature with a sculpture by Angus Taylor.

Artwork by Nelson Makamo, Jo Kilmany Liversage and Charlotte Gerhard adorn the walls, whilst sculptures by Julien Marinetti and Bruno Catalano are tastefully placed.
