Located at the foot of a nature reserve in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, South Africa, Kloof Road House is a luxurious house of 1,100m² (11,840ft²) designed by Nico van der Meulen Architects and M Square Lifestyle Design in 2015.
Kloof Road House has four en suite bedrooms; two children’s bedrooms and a guest bedroom situated downstairs and the main bedroom suite located upstairs. The design of the main bedroom incorporates a large open balcony with expansive views of the garden, while the open-plan bathroom flows seamlessly around the corner to the expansive dressing room. The main suite has its own lounge area with a television and fireplace, as well as a mini kitchenette bar. A Pajama-lounge playroom is located upstairs and overlooks the double volume living spaces and kitchen, it is connected to a large north-facing balcony that forms the roof of the lanai, offering views of the garden.
A 12m x 8m pavilion is located on the lower section of the garden and affords you the opportunity to view the northern façade in its entirety. Once again you see the steel morphs floating above the glass doors, joisting over the pool and garden. The koi pond also cantilevers over the swimming pool allowing uninterrupted views of the koi pond from the pavilion, adding to the dramatic backdrop of the northern façade design. The pavilion allows for effortless entertaining as there is a swimming pool and open fire pit next to it, as well as a barbeque area and bar located within.
