Nieuwe Steenberg is a luxury residential development on the slopes of the Constantiaberg mountain overlooking False Bay towards the Hottentots Holland mountain range. The site is unique in that it is one of the last sites in the exclusive Steenberg area that is available for development.
The contemporary residential estate follows the natural contours of the mountain, and the arrangement of the well-appointed homes provides privacy, with traditional werf walls surrounding each property, along with a strong sense of community. The low werf walls, the openness of the outside spaces to the street, off-street entrances, pergolas, gabled walls and Victorian profile roof sheeting all respond to the rural architectural context of the area.
The white-walled houses have traditional high-pitched roofs that allow for generous interiors with large windows and sliding doors that open onto upstairs balconies and ground level covered terraces, filling the spaces with natural light and providing panoramic views across the vineyards and mountain landscape.
The houses offer spacious open plan ground floor living spaces, leading onto outdoor living areas and private gardens.
