Nestled in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley, this contemporary home offers luxury living in a unique smallholding setting.

Blending Tradition with Modernity
The design of Winelands Villa draws heavily on the valley’s agricultural roots. Interestingly, the estate’s guidelines call for a contemporary twist on various farmhouse styles. These include elements of Cape vernacular architecture and other rural influences, like stables.
