Just as its name suggests, Obsidian is leading South African architecture firm, SAOTA’s granite & glass-designed masterpiece.

This 5-levelled, luxury villa, set high up in Clifton on the slopes of Lion's Head, is designed to blend in with the mountain and maximise the magnificent views of the 12 Apostles mountain range, Lion’s Head and the Atlantic Ocean.

The tasteful interior generates a sense of serenity from the moment that you walk through the front door.

The lower part of the building, an independent apartment, is expressed as ‘a heavy stone plinth’, its gabion-walled exterior and cocooning interior of dark-stained oak and off shutter concrete reflecting the strata of the mountainside out of which they emerge.

On top of this is a transitional space that is expressed as a green terrace and braai area, representative of what would have been the landscape’s foliage level. All levels of the house are connected via a sculptural timber staircase, like a folded ribbon that, appropriate to the home’s design narrative, gradually lightens in tone as it rises.

A vertically slatted box hovers over the terrace, with screens that can be opened or closed to adjust the amount of natural light filtering into the interior, ‘as if you were sitting in the shade of a large tree’.

The uppermost level, the master bedroom, sits above the tree-tops and as such the materials – white marble, pale timber – and use of skylights express a feeling of air and openness while fold-away glass walls welcome in the full expanse of the view.

Furnished and designed by renowned interior decorator, Cécile & Boyd, the property is immaculate in style and design, offering all the modern requirements with luxury throughout. All the art, furniture and sculptures can be included in the purchase of the house.

The price excludes VAT.
