Situated on 23.2974 Hectares, with Breathtaking Views!
Situated on 23.2974 hectares at the mouth of the Igoda River stands an award winning architectural masterpiece. Only ten kilometers from the East London airport, Diamond Igoda View offers a secure haven with sea and river frontage and a secluded semi private beach.
Architects Andrew Makin & Janina Masojoda from Design Workshop brief. The home was designed in homage to the late modernist architect Miles van der Rohe using materials that minimise visual pollution of the skyline, with the emphasis on light and sound.
The home boasts five reception rooms and an entertainment area fit for celebrity living. There are six exquisitely decorated en suite bedrooms sleeping 12 or three distinct zones of 2 bedroom en-suite self contained units (each 2 en-suite bedrooms with an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining room.)
Massive stack away doors and shuttered windows open up views of the sea and river. The inside is raw-bag washed walls and concrete. The floors are large custom made cement tiles with inlaid glass chips creating a harmonious floor area. Sensor switches snap on lights with body movement. The central living areas are double volume with 8 meter high ceilings. Frameless glass balustrades allow unlimited views of river and sea.
The property has Eskom power and a water supply from Buffalo City Municipality. The property is currently zoned Agricultural and comprises two portions of land, one measuring 11.4256 hectares and the other 11.8718 hectares. This will allow the construction of 2 residential units on each erf of land and each residential unit having a separate title.
The courtyard is sheltered from the sea side winds and houses and exercise pool. The pool area is a perfect refuge to savour the sunsets or laze around to revitalize body and soul.
Game such as Zebra, Impala, Nyala and other buck walk freely creating a truly African escape.
