Strathmore Penthouse is an immaculate, intimate penthouse ideal for romantic couples who enjoy contemporary, refreshing décor and engulfing ocean views. The panoramic views of Camps Bay Beach from all corners of the penthouse make this an architectural delight. This crisp, minimalist open-plan design ensures that there is an elegant sense of flow right through the penthouse to the wooden-clad balcony. Located in a prime area overlooking Camp’s Bay’s main strip on Victoria Road, this four star establishment is ideal for young couples.
Owned by a former Springbok rugby player, Strathmore Penthouse is perfect for sports fanatics who will delight in the museum of rugby paraphernalia adorning the three flights of stairs leading into the penthouse. Immediately in front of you is the balcony (complete with Jacuzzi) protected by glass panels; giving the impression that nothing stands between you and the ocean. Furnished with stark white décor throughout, the only injection of colour is from the African inspired artwork on the walls.
The kitchen is on the left-hand side of the entrance and has a small breakfast/bar nook that flows out onto the balcony. An opulent chandelier hangs over the dining table (seats 8) and forms part of the lounge area comprising two plush chairs and a L-shaped couch. A huge window serves as the backdrop to the open-plan bedroom/bathroom which is flanked by the Twelve Apostles mountain range. The stand-alone bath adjacent to the bed has uninterrupted sea views – this really is a romantic room that creates quite a heady atmosphere. Restaurants, cocktail bars and cafes are within safe walking distance and the palm-fringed Camps Bay beach is across the road. The Clifton Beaches and Cape Town CBD are a five minute drive away.
