All in New Build

Elemental Elegance

For James and Clare Templeton, a decision to change pace and focus on a better quality of life led them to a small coastal village near Cape Town, where they built their contemporary, farmhouse-inspired home

The best of the best special

Here at Abode we have been reflecting on the year that’s been, a year filled with amazing projects we have had the privilege of featuring. In all cases, the homeowners were welcoming, showing us around, talking through the build process and singing the praises of the builders and contractors involved. To celebrate, we got together and pored over the projects that graced the pages in 2018 to select our Best of the Best, so called because all the homes we feature are of an incredibly high standard.

Welcome Home

The owners of this thoughtfully designed and tastefully appointed family home, designed and built by Mike Greer Homes, enjoyed the process so much theyére looking forward to doing it all over again - just not quite yet.

Sailing high

Located on a small, steep hillside section, this new build by Avenue Homes is firmly and reassuringly anchored to the bedrock and yet appears to float like a sailboat on the sea.
