This beautiful home—with views from every room—is set in two hectares of gardens and overlooks the magnificent Jamieson Valley. ‘Himalaya’ is decorated with the owner’s private collection of art, photographs, furniture, rugs and artefacts from many years of travelling to India, Nepal and Bhutan in the Eastern Himalayas.
The house can accommodate 10 people, and guests are welcomed with a bottle of French champagne and cheese platter. Two of the five bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and all feature Crabtree & Evelyn and organic Urban Rituelle products.
Central heating, electric blankets and heated towel racks also provided.
More details about the house can be viewed on the website.
