The chocolate brown velvet sofas give us a cosy feel as they surround a large open fireplace. The room is filled with natural light from its three French doors which can be opened to let in crisp fresh air. No aspect was missed when designing this living room as the intricate roof is also an amazing feature of this home.
The second floor overlooks onto another living room which has 25 foot walls and windows that have a beautiful view of the Lake Ontario. Hanging from the roof is a large chandelier in the middle of the room. Situated below is where guest would be seated on cushioned sofas surrounding each other for socialising and entertainment.

St Leon 10 blends the requirements of everyday family life whilst also providing the perfect entertainment quarter for large social gatherings.
“Design is a balance between form and function…it takes two.” Seesaw
Located in Cape Town, South Africa, St Leon 10 allows for exceptional views towards the 12 Apostle Mountains, Clifton Beaches and Robben Island. The building itself is cut into the slope with approximately 50% of its rear face below the natural ground level. The upper level rests above the essentially glazed South West facing first floor and this emphasizes the height of the building in relation to the adjacent ground level.
The linear design of this house means that all rooms offer spectacular sea views and the back of the house is completely private thanks to the steel framed timber screen. Off the street access is also available through a set of heavy timber gates.
The entrance of the house leads onto the main living area that includes two lounges, dining room and kitchen. The modern stairs unfold like an accordion; leading up to both the second floor and bedroom levels. The ground floor is accessed through the same stairwell and accommodates a spacious entertainment room with a statement sunken lounge, back-lit onyx bar and wine cellar. A gym and second guest room are also situated on this lowest level.
ANTONI ASSOCIATES were chosen as the interior decorators. The interiors achieve both welcoming and warm vibes through the use of soft cream leathers and weathered timber finishes. The use of selected fabrics and other key pieces add a sense of luxury to this space.
They say that you can’t have it all, but perhaps with this house – you can.
