About the Property

Beautiful, new, split-level house in spectacular location

Knysna Heights is a luxurious three-level house situated on a ridge above the picturesque town of Knysna, South Africa’s premier holiday destination. This unique property (completed 2007) is suspended over the indigenous forest with stunning views to the famous Knysna Heads. Over-sized front doors open into a large entrance hall leading to the spacious open-plan living area. This level contains the fully equipped modern kitchen with granite surfaces, microwave, electric oven and hob, washing machine and dishwasher; the family room with comfortable sofas, open fire place, large LCD screen, satellite TV, Bose Home Entertainment system with CD and DVD, books/board games; the dining room with table for 8 and a spacious lounge area overlooking the lagoon. The living areas are connected by beautiful stained wooden floors with stunning views through the wrap-around glass doors and from the entertainment decks that surround the house on every side. A small infinity pool overlooks the forest.

Golf: The Garden Route is a very popular golf destination with world class courses adorning dramatic cliff tops and scenic countryside. Knysna is extremely well positioned, making it feasible to play a different course every day of the week!

We can arrange discounted green fees at two championship courses in Knysna – Pezula, a magnificent course situated on the Eastern Head overlooking the Indian Ocean and Simola, a Jack Nicklaus signature course in the undulating hills behind the town, with more, spectacular vistas. Pezula and Simola are both listed in Compleat Golfer’s Twenty Most Beautiful Courses in SA.

Other courses in the area include the Knysna Golf Course, the Fancourt County Club, the George Golf Course, Oubaai (Ernie Els’s first signature course) and the Plettenberg Bay Country Club.

Smoking: We ask you to respect our request that nobody should smoke inside the house. Ashtrays are provided but please use the balconies.
