ROOM RENOVATION #2 BATHROOM
IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THIS SPA-LIKE OASIS WITH ITS VIEW OF THE NEIGHBOURING MILKWOOD FOREST WAS ONCE A DREARY ROOM IN A DARK, DINGY HOUSE
What was previously a dark, dreary room in a Noordhoek home in the Mother City is now a spa-like oasis with a view of its leafy surrounds
Anastasis, which means ‘rising up’ and ‘rejuvenation’, is the name of the Noordhoek home in Cape Town in which Anna and Benjamin Winters live with their three young children – a name that is apt since extensive renovations connected the interior of their house with the peaceful exteriors. The couple were originally sold on the possibility of an amazing view of Noordhoek beach and the quiet of the neighbouring milkwood forest.
‘Our bathroom renovation was part of an entire house renovation, because the house was next to dreadful: dark, dated and dirty,’ says Anna. The overall vision was to introduce as much natural light into the home as possible and bring in the peace of the outdoors, which has been successfully achieved in their bathroom.
The large, glass pop-out extension allows for an uninterrupted view of the forest, while wooden duckboard flooring and bathroom counters, a neutral colour palette and a freestanding bath have created a strong sense of calm. Anastasis is available to
