Hawksmoor House is a Cape Dutch country retreat located on a 220 hectare wine farm, Matjieskuil, between Joostenberg Vlakte and Klapmuts in the Cape Winelands.
Meticulously restored and beautifully decorated with exquisite antiques, it occupies a stunning location amidst vineyards overlooking Table Mountain, and enjoys spectacular sunsets.
About a 25 minute drive away from the buzzing Cape Town centre, the estate is quiet and serene. The farm is home to cows, porcupines, hawks, pelicans and countless other wildlife.
Hawksmoor House has 16 beautiful guest rooms in four adjacent buildings set around a central pool and ornamental pond and garden.
The grounds are laid out to include a large lawn, reflecting pond, lavender beds; vegetable, rose and herb gardens, a gorgeous wine cellar with fireplace, wine tasting room, and a swimming pool with a view of Table Mountain.
The Manor House, The Slave Quarters, the Dairy Rooms and Edge house are all original footprints of the historic farm, converted with great sympathy and flair by the owners, and furnished with an elegant mix of beautiful antique pieces.
Each building offers a different perspective on the landscape and farm, and each room is individually decorated. No matter what room you stay in, the experience is consistently elegant and the hospitality warm and relaxed.
If you love dirt roads, sunsets, wine by candlelight, an owl outside your window, and don’t mind sharing the pool with the occasional disoriented frog, or getting a paw print of overzealous dogs on your trousers, you have found your place!
An authentic lovely country home !
