Casa Grace Villa – 4 levels of luxury living in Camps Bay; now in the Mantis Owners Collection.
Casa Grace is a recent addition to the Mantis Owners Collection, situated in the affluent suburb of Camps Bay in Cape Town. Elegantly designed, this private residence offers privacy and opulence spread out over four floors. The modern spaces were designed by renowned architect and author, Vernon Head, who envisioned the layout of the residence to optimize the views in order to offer a 360-degree view over nature. These views include the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range on the left, with the wide expanse of the Atlantic Ocean sprawling out before you.
Enter through the front door and walk straight into a well-stocked wine cellar just off the spacious garage. Once finished browsing the fine wines on display walk up a short flight of stairs to the first-floor balcony which is furnished with a dining table, an outside pool and spectacular views of the ocean span out in front of the property. This floor also features a Jacuzzi and sauna. Journey up all the other three floors using the indoor lift or the elegant glass staircase to perfectly appointed bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and views over the Atlantic.
Casa Grace is a high tech residence fitted out with an automation system which runs throughout the house offering guests easy control of lighting, various sound systems, blinds, and the TVs through one device. There are two TV’s situated on the ground floor in separate lounges: the winter lounge and the summer lounge. The summer lounge is set in an open plan fashion with a bar with glass sliding doors which open out on to the balcony. The winter lounge is just off the entrance of the house and offers a comfortable and lush space with a fireplace. The first floor also features a luxury home cinema, offering a lush cinematic experience.
