1970 Tokai farm house, “Mountain rejuvenation

The spectacular mountainside of Swaanswyk in Tokai exudes a rejuvinating energy of the rich heritage and splendid surrounds, and most of all, a lifestyle to aspire to.

This impressive family home is set on one of the origional farm settlements of the greater Constantia and Tokai valleys, where the history traces back to the roots of many Capetonians.

Denis Maas of MaC Architects says the origional house was an existing clinker-brick single-storey ranch style “spec house’, built in the 1970’s. The elegant house is now fashioned with subtle combinations of timber tones, various wall finishes, fabrics and shutters to form a restfully harmonious composition. Large open-plan living areas and a beautiful glass and timber atrium, double volume roof and huge window spaces, enhance the feeling of lightness throughout.
