On the slopes of Lion’s Head and perched above Clifton’s sandy coves, Iron Man House is as extraordinary as its alluring setting. Designed by Peerutin Karol, this home in Cape Town’s swishest beach destination pays homage to mid-century modernist architecture. Now you have the chance to make yourself at home in Africa’s finest futuristic masterpiece, where urban living blends with nature and time stands still.
This sculptural home captures the zeitgeist of Hollywood’s jet-set era, drawing every bit of allure and drama out of its 270-degree vistas of the Atlantic Seaboard. Spread over four levels (accessed via two elevators or a spiral staircase), this home in Cape Town’s most desirable address is perfect for gatherings of friends and families with teens. It has entertainment areas aplenty; an extensive home spa with an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, steam room, and Jacuzzi; a home theatre; a home relaxation pavilion worthy of James Bond, with a sunken bar, barbecue areas, and rim-flow swimming pool; digital-games set-up; large open-plan living area with uninterrupted ocean views, long dining table, sleek kitchen-cum-bar area (plus a behind-the-scenes prep kitchen), all of which flow onto the lawn, outdoor barbecue area and the pavilion. The luxurious bedroom suites on the top floor are private sanctuaries, each with panoramic views and total privacy. Two separate bedroom pods above the entertainment pavilion are perfect for guests seeking extra independence.
