SCHOONE OORDT – SOUTH AFRICA
WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE LOOK? This handsome house, with its Victorian filigree-laced veranda, has been lovingly restored by its current owners. Room are pretty, with white walls and antique wood furniture, but it’s the building that’s the star here, sat among neat lawns and rose bushes in beautiful countryside east of Cape Town.
Round the back there’s an open conservatory, where evening meals made with ingredients from the kitchen garden are served.
WHICH ROOM IS MOST MEMORABLE? With a four-poster bed, fireplace and rolltop bath, it has to be the Honeymoon Suite.
