Property description

Live life on the edge
Knysna’s Eastern Head is one of the world’s most exclusive residential addresses. Here you will discover the delights of Cliff House, an exceptional property occupying one of the area's best oceanside locations. Perched on the very edge of the Head’s majestic sandstone cliffs high above the Indian Ocean, its dramatic position and unrivalled views will simply take your breath away.

This totally unique residence offers uninterrupted sea views from every room. Nature lovers will revel in boundless marine life and bird watching opportunities – especially from the property’s exclusive whale-viewing platform.

The elegant simplicity of the building’s architecture and the ‘Zen’ quality of it’s décor and furnishings will invite you to be at one with the natural environment whilst enjoying every possible creature comfort.

Making maximum use of natural light and textures, the accommodation is arranged on four mezzanine levels. It offers three light and airy double bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and stylish ensuite bathrooms, in addition to a studio apartment with mini-kitchen and outside shower.

The stylish and well equipped kitchen/dining room offers magnificent ocean views, as does the main lounge and additional sitting/dining space. Folding external glass doors allow all areas to be opened to create free-flow access to the great outdoors. A portable braai unit is available to guests, whilst the fire-pit offers an extraordinary setting for sundowners and good conversation.
Cliff House is designed for sensual pleasure and total relaxation. Set within an attractive indigenous garden, the superb 18m rim-flow ‘lap’ pool and adjacent solar heated jacuzzi will tempt you to watch for whales and dolphins whilst soaking up the African sun.

A boardwalk leads down from the pool area to a delightful oceanside ‘viewing platform’ - perfect for whale & dolphin watching in season. Walk a little further and you arrive at the newly-constructed clifftop firepit - the ideal location for a sundowner in front of the dancing flames.

The state-of-the art home entertainment system provides music throughout the house and the LCD TV screens, located in the master bedroom and lounge, offer satellite channels and DVD viewing for lazy evenings at home.
