Stunning Mansion in South Africa : House of the Day
Do you like this article?
Located in Johannesburg, South Africa, this is a huge, modern home by Nico Van Der Meulen Architects. It virtually has everything you could ever need and more!
It all starts with a lovely koi pond near the driveway, and it continues with the stunning 1,400 square-meter (about 15,069 sq. feet) residence. Oh, and we couldn’t forget the lanai and the patio near the 18 meter (59 feet) infinity pool outside.
The palatial home features a large basement that can fit a gym, a spa, a dressing room, a wine cellar (with separate areas for red and white wines), a home theatre with a wet bar, a dance studio and a music room. There are two atriums in the house and even two bridges that link different areas of the mansion!
It is a very luminous home, thanks to the extensive use of glass, even when it comes to walls between different rooms. Frameless sliding doors and huge windows allow nature to be closer to the whole construction.
Other features of this unique house include a lift, panic rooms, glass stairs, open and covered patios, several balconies, a scullery/laundry room, three kids suites with mini kitchenette and pajama lounge, and we don’t even need to mention the bedrooms, the bathrooms, the family room, the dining room or the service areas.
One thing is for sure: you don’t find a house like this every day. Great job, Nico Van Der Meulen Architects!
