Alphen New Court Heritage Conversion
Exclusively designed townhouse set in a historical piece of Cape Town. This unit in New Court at Alphen, originally part of the Groot Constantia Estate, the first place where wine was made in South Africa. Established as a farm in the late 17th Century, Alphen was originally part of the estate of Governor Simon van der Stel. It changed hands several times until the main homestead was built in1753 by Abraham Leever, known as the “Monsieur from Amsterdam”. A century later, the Alphen estate was bought by the Cloete family, owners of the past 150 years. Sandy Bairnsfather-Cloete inherited the land in 1962 and is was he who converted the Alphen into a hotel. In the later part of the 20th Century, the cellar opposite the homestead was converted into offices, and in 2007 a residential townhouse development.
“New Court at Alphen” was completed outside the werf behind the dower house and cellar. The New Court at Alphen features semi- detached properties and is an exclusive private area adjacent to the Alphen Hotel and its main courtyard and business area. A shared large subterranean garage – the roof of which forms the courtyard forecourt – services the units.
This unique home is 280 m² spread over 3 floors, with private garden area, and the shared courtyard entrance has a private entry forecourt space. It it the only unit equipped with an elevator.
It is a perfect synergy of European finishes and certain African tones and textures. The solid yellow-wood floor continues into the pine decking. The upper floor loft was transformed into the spacious master suite with cedar stripes cladded ceilings. The bathrooms are playful and include the exquisite colour ranges from Vola, and these tones are reflected in the painted glass designs for the shower walls and in the custom shower trays. The kitchen is the bulthaup monoblock, designed by Veena Kalsi.
The price is inclusive of all art work and furniture.
