Ellerman House occupies an elevated position on the slopes of Lion's Head about Bantry Bay and overlooking Cape Town's striking coastline, the Atlantic Ocean and Robben Island. Once the summer residence of shipping magnate Sir John Ellerman and his wife Lady Esther, this gracious Cape Edwardian mansion with sumptuously appointed interiors, shaded veranda’s and tiered gardens was created for enjoyment of the finer things in life. Ellerman House boasts one of the finest private art collections in South Africa, being a home rather than a hotel means all of the rooms are different in size, shape and decor.
An ultra modern addition to Ellerman House is The Ellerman Villa & Spa. Standing stylishly alongside the historic home with its dazzling ocean vistas. The Ellerman Villa is a 'smart' house but the technology is not overwhelming and has been designed for ease of use. The architecture is reminiscent of the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, the great American architect. Its uncompromising angles, oblique outlooks and sheer glass allow maximum exposure the sea below and beyond. Comprising a spa on the ground floor, a living area on the second, open plan and flows outdoors to the endless horizon. With three bedrooms on the third and a further two spa rooms, the Ellerman Villa provides a home away from home for the modern traveller comfortable in a striking minimalist environment.
