“MY STYLE ON PAPER IS GREY, AUSTERE MODERNISM – BUT COLOUR ALWAYS SNEAKS IN”
It was through the very act of trying to leave South Africa that Barry and Anji Connell were drawn back in. The couple were holidaying there last year, having wanted to visit for some time. On the final day of a five-night trip, while en route to the airport, they decided to stop by the town of Franschhoek for a quick look around, having heard how lovely it was. Spying a property agency, the couple got out of the car to peek in the window. What they saw there was love at first sight – and the rest, as they say, is history.
Franschhoek is a country town that’s less than a two-hour drive east of Cape Town, surrounded by stunning scenery that includes centuries-old vineyards and magnificent mountains. It’s also where the couple now spend three months of each year, splitting their time equally between their various homes – they have properties in Hong Kong, London and North Norfolk, England. Anji works on the go as an interior architect and garden/landscape designer, so it comes as no surprise that the newest home in Franschhoek is full of style and character, both inside and out.
