Property Description

Can you envision a harmonious blend of concrete, stone, wood, steel and glass set against the cliffside backdrop of Pezula Golf Estate? Discover “Whales on 14th”, where the home’s architecture reshapes your perception of the spaces you inhabit. There is simply no mistaking the views here, with the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, complemented by the breathtaking spectacle of playful whales gracing the horizon, offset by the vivid green fairways of the highly acclaimed Pezula Championship Golf Course.

Designed by the renowned Knysna architect, Nick Olivier, this contemporary home masterfully blends function with form. Water elements, from cascading water features to the expansive ocean and inviting pool, are seamlessly interwoven into the home’s design. Here, indoor and outdoor living spaces are celebrated, all while maintaining an intimate sense of privacy.

As you take your first step onto the garden pathway, a distinct metal sculpture of a whale tail immediately captures the attention. This emblematic piece not only symbolises the home's namesake, "Whales on 14th," but it also encapsulates the very essence of the residence itself. Just as whales traverse vast oceanic expanses representing freedom and mastery over one's life and destiny, this home stands as a testament to the majesty and freedom that living on this property offers. The same expansiveness and mastery felt when observing these majestic creatures in the wild can be felt within the bounds of this residence. The art piece, which uniquely integrates the silhouette of a whale's tail with a golf flag and club, further anchors this symbolism, paying homage to the iconic 14th hole of the golf course that unfolds before the property.

Progressing towards the entrance, you’re guided by off-shutter concrete, leading you across a tranquil fish pond and concluding at the imposing, solid wood pivot door. Once that door opens, your gaze is irresistibly drawn along the axis line of the home. Expansive windows stretch before you, and a tumbling water feature seems to merge seamlessly into the pool, directing your view over the lush golf fairway. Beyond that lies a cinematic ocean expanse cradled by the formidable Knysna cliffs. The vista is simply breathtaking.

As you're compelled to move closer to the brilliant blue of the ocean, an overwhelming sense of freedom envelopes you. The front of the house is constructed almost entirely of glass, and with cavity sliders that push away to oblivion, the boundary between the indoors and the vast world outside seems to dissolve. It’s as if you’ve been set free, much like the majestic whales you observe from this very home.

However, the allure of the residence is not only limited to its external views. Once you manage to detach your gaze from the natural beauty outside, you'll find yourself engrossed in the internal sophistication of the house. Every corner and space has been meticulously curated. The warmth of the Oggi engineered oak floors contrasts beautifully with the coolness of the exterior view. Solid wood finishes lend an organic feel, while the bespoke kitchen showcases both functionality and design. Integrated air conditioners ensure the perfect temperature, and home automation brings the future to your fingertips. Every detail, every finish, stands as a testament to refined taste and architectural vision.

The architectural blueprint of the house is both innovative and thoughtfully conceived. The primary living areas are designed in the shape of a U, wrapping around a central courtyard, garden, and pool. This U-shaped design ensures that natural light filters into the interior spaces throughout the day. Central to this layout is the main open plan living area, encompassing the kitchen, dining room, and an enclosed patio.

The kitchen itself commands attention with its striking red Lacanche cooker, a testament to esteemed French craftsmanship originating from the Burgundy village of Lacanche since the 19th century. Complementing this focal point are top-tier Gaggenau appliances and bespoke, handcrafted, and painted kitchen cupboards by Sybaris. Adjacently, a cavity slider seamlessly retracts into the walls, revealing a flowing water feature that cascades into the baja pool. This space resonates with the calming principles of Feng Shui, amplified by the soothing murmur of water. A serene outdoor nook, ideal for a quiet moment or delving into a book, is accessed via floating steps spanning the water. Furthermore, a cantilevered lounging deck overlooking the pool, golf course, and ocean ensures privacy for pool-goers, making it an ideal spot to relax and take in the views.

Within the meticulously designed layout of this property, the bedroom configuration stands as a testament to both flexibility and luxury. The house is smartly divided into a west wing and an east wing. The upstairs west wing boasts a sumptuous master bedroom and a secondary bedroom, both with their own ensuite bathrooms.

On the opposite side, the east wing downstairs originally housed another master bedroom along with an ensuite secondary bedroom. Ingeniously, the current owners have transformed this space into a self-contained flatlet. The master bedroom now functions as a lounge, with the ensuite bathroom converted into a convenient kitchenette. A separate entrance enhances the autonomy of this space, perfect for guests or potential rental opportunities. For those considering a return to the original design, it's reassuring to know that all plumbing and electrical configurations remain in place for an easy transition back to a four-bedroom layout.

The master bedroom is the height of luxury. Soft plush carpeting caresses your feet, leading to panoramic views of the white water at the cliffs of The Cove. An elevated private patio enhances the room’s ambience, inviting moments of tranquility and offering a sensation of soaring above all else. It’s no wonder this has become one of the owner’s cherished spots in the home. Amplifying the room's appeal, the dresser, equipped with mirrored slider cupboard doors, captures and reflects the outside seascape, drawing the ocean's beauty inside. The accompanying master ensuite is a blend of function and indulgence. It offers dual basins for him and her, a free-standing bath for those soothing soaks, a spacious shower, and a state-of-the-art Geberit Mera automated wc, capturing the essence of modern luxury.

It’s all too easy to lose track of time at “Whales on 14th”, drifting in daydreams, unwinding on the lounging deck, floating in your secluded pool, soaking up the sun by the poolside, finding solace in the tranquil garden courtyard, or simply relishing the views from your bedroom haven, the choices are abundant. For those working remotely, a dedicated upstairs home office ensures productivity. If you're in the mood for a seaside escape, Fisherman's Cove, your private beach within the estate, is just a short descent away. This secluded beach, bordered by indigenous milkwood forests, is perfect for a discreet swim. Alternatively, challenge yourself with a round of golf on the clifftop. Outside the estate’s perimeters, the charming town of Knysna, stands out for its immaculate beaches, preserved nature reserves, and thrilling outdoor excursions. Whether you're venturing through the iconic Knysna Heads or savouring delectable seafood at waterfront eateries, this dynamic coastal town caters to diverse tastes and interests.

"Whales on 14th", strategically stands where the majestic Outeniqua Mountains, lush forests, tranquil Knysna Lagoon, and expansive Indian Ocean meet, solidifying its status as a distinctive and most sought-after place to reside. 

Keep in mind the Home Owners Levy includes a golf membership.
