About this villa

This exquisite home perched on the top of Northcliff hill offers breathtaking views across the whole of Johannesburg from the CBD through Rosebank, Sandton, Midrand, Randburg to the Northgate Dome, you can see it all.

Guests will enjoy a unique experience, and have all the amenities and comforts fit for the more discerning executives and travellers.

It is really a palace sought after for TV series and major international brand adverts! Toyota, Cell C and DSTV have shot adverts at the Palace.

The double volume entrance hall gives you the choice to go to the living areas or up to the bedrooms. The living areas includes an open plan kitchen, separate scullery, dining room, spacious lounge (with large screen TV and fireplace) that opens up to both the front deck and the interior Japanese garden and koi pond area. There is a bar room, pool table room and sauna.

The front deck boasts the best views from the house. It has a gazebo sitting area, heated infinity pool and zen garden. The interior courtyard contains an undercover outdoor eating area, gas braai (barbecue for non-South Africans), zen garden and koi pond filled with koi.

The large main bedroom shares the same views. Sitting in the bath with a glass of wine and watching that view is a treat. (Don't worry, no-one can see you up here.) The en-suite bathroom has a bath, extra large shower and double basins. There is a king-size bed (with motorised adjustments and massage function), built in cupboards and a separate toilet.

The second and third bedrooms each have an extra length queen size bed and full en-suite bathrooms with views onto the Japense garden.

The house is fully equipped and serviced for all your business or holiday needs. There is unlimited fast WiFi throughout the house. Cleaning, washing and ironing are all included.

There is a heating system for winter and a centralised evapourative cooling system for summer. Solar panels assist with power. A back-up power system can keep the house running for many hours. An off-the-grid water system ensures continuous clean and fresh water. A state of the art security system with armed response helps to keep you safe.
