Nettleton 199 House | Cape Town

Nettleton 199 is an absolutely breathtaking house designed by SAOTA (Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects). We are big fans of SATA, we have featured before the "First Crescent", a stunning minimalist home also in South Africa. Nettleton 199 is positioned in Cape Town, on the side of Lion’s Head and has fantastic views over the Atlantic Ocean, it was designed to maximize the connection with the view and the sea and to create a garden beside the mountain located near the site. The garden has views trough the living room capturing the dramatic views.
