The owners wanted their estate to celebrate the surrounding mountains and vineyards. To this end architect Christof Albertyn designed contemporary buildings featuring wood, glass and natural materials, that show the views to effect.

Interior designer Suzy Vissers used high-end, modern furnishings from Dutch companies Moooi and Linteloo to give the rooms a feeling of warmth and luxury. The interiors are finished off with a collection of South African art. Clouds' combination of European décor and South African art has made the estate an acclaimed design destination.

Outdoors, guests can laze in cocoon-like sunbeds on the pool deck and front lawn, which is set in a large, beautiful garden designed by landscaper Wendy Attwell.
