Full description:

Asking ZAR 80million: Truly one of Africa's Top properties situated high up in the exclusive Price Drive location of Upper Constantia, Cape Town with further adjoining 1.5 hectare Vineyard available for sale by separate negotiation.

Cielo nel Capo is considered to be one of the top properties in Africa, and has featured in Hollywood, European and Bollywood films and many advertisement campaigns.

This ambassadorial property is set over 5 levels with a 6 bed Main House, Indoor Leisure Pool complex, Tennis Court, Cinema Room and 2 x Flats.

The property was constructed between 1998 and 2001, on vacant land against the Vlakkenberg Mountain in Constantia, south of downtown Cape Town, South Africa.The land is located in one of the most sought-after suburbs in Africa and features a breath taking view of Cape Town and False Bay.

The property is tucked into the mountainside, on 5 levels, which are accessed by two elevators.

The architect, Nico van der Meulen, and the owner chose an architectural design that is reminiscent of a Tuscan villa, with lower sections of the buildings presenting an aged appearance, which progressively evolves into a 'newer' look in the higher floors. All these effects were artfully manmade.

No expense was spared in the choice of finishes and functionality in the development of this remarkable villa.

The property's specification includes several large entertainment areas; a state of the art cinema that seats 14; a gym; a large heated indoor swimming pool; a steam room; a spa bath that accommodates 8; and a competition-standard, flood-lit tennis court.

The one hectare (2 ½ acre) estate is fully developed featuring formal gardens and a portion of mountainside that is planted with Cape fynbos, the indigenous flora.

All buildings underwent major maintenance in 2010 and at the same time, all the technology was upgraded or replaced to conform to current standards.

The entire property is covered by a wireless network, connected to broadband.
The villa's home automation system and many electronic control facilities utilise this network. The home automation system (Lutron) controls all lights, pool pump cycles, irrigation, security gates, etc. And is integrated with a comprehensive alarm system.
All the Audio Visual systems were replaced in 2010 to incorporate the latest features and technology, such as full hd, Blu-Ray, Dolby 7.1, etc.
A multi-room sound system provides music on all floors and is based on Linn and Russound solutions, accessing a Network-Attached-Storage (nas) device with a large collection of stored music.
The multiroom system also offers an iPod-dock attachment. A movie library of over 1000 titles is also digitally loaded onto the nas and can be streamed at original quality to many TV's in the villa.
Wireless access to the media facilities is possible from almost anywhere in the estate is with Phillips Pronto hands-free remote control devices.

A comprehensive security system protects the property.

Other comforts include highly purified water provided on-tap in most areas (e.g. All bathrooms); instant boiling and chilled water systems in all entertainment areas; double glazing throughout; air-conditioning throughout; and under floor heating throughout.
