This midcentury modern place was designed by the noted architect (look him up) back in the 1960s and still looks a distinctive build today. It’s also said to be in a good location too, only 7 or 8 minutes from the city centre. You can also see Table Mountain and Lions Head from the back garden, which is some view, I’m sure you’ll agree.
