perched on the slopes of ta­ble moun­tain, rus­sell and tracy’s fam­ily home epit­o­mises mid-cen­tury cool

THE OWN­ERS Rus­sell Bolt­man, an en­tre­pre­neur and co-founder of Devil’s Peak Brew­ing Com­pany, his wife

Tracy, a lawyer, and their three chil­dren – An­abella, 15, and twins River and Sofia, seven. Plus two dogs and a cat.

THE PROP­ERTY A new-build home on the slopes of Ta­ble Moun­tain, a UNESCO World Her­itage Site. There is a wine cellar on the ground floor. The first floor has a mas­ter suite with his and hers bath­rooms, plus four en-suite bed­rooms and a play room. A liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen space oc­cupy the se­cond floor, along with a study, TV room, scullery, laun­dry and WC. There’s also a rooftop gar­den.

EX­TE­RIOR

The clever use of bold ar­chi­tec­tural lines, mod­ern engi­neer­ing and stone and con­crete has en­sured that the house fits nat­u­rally into the land­scape, com­ple­ment­ing the moun­tain back­drop.

Get the look The stone walls were matched to the old stone walls on Cape Town’s Buiten­gracht Street by builder Arnold Meir­ing. The out­door din­ing ta­ble is by James Mudge. The seat­ing is by B&B Italia.
