Top Billing visits a luxury Pretoria home


Top Billing tours a minimalistic Pretoria family home with a unique structure

This stunning Pretoria location presented the designer with a challenge – keep it minimal, merge it with nature and maximise on the space, which isn’t very large. With a little creative ingenuity, this beautiful Lynwood home is a testament to how you don’t need a large area to make a big impact!

The couple who built this house have strong roots in Pretoria. Both studied accountancy at TUKS and after a stint in Joburg, they wanted to get back  to their roots. Choosing an ideally situated but compact plot, they asked architect Andre Eksteen to make their vision a reality. 

Beneath the ground, the basement houses a tv room and play area for the boys, as well as the guest bedroom - with its own path back up to the garden above.

The beautiful setting proved a major inspiration to Kristen Page’s interiors – as it did for her career. It was her move to Pretoria which saw her shift from studying biology to design and she clearly made the right choice.

The design is minimalistic and slightly industrial, while still luxurious and suited to the needs of the family. The house is largely open plan and with very few walls to hang paintings on, real sunsets, thunderstorms and wildlife provide the artwork.

To maximise on space the house has a number of interrsting mezzanine levels, such as the TV area downstairs or the office on the way to the master suite.

Attached to this is a stunning master suite with exceptional views and an interesting use of space. The master bath lies almost, parallel to the bed, and the headboard doubles as a cabinet.

Planning the house took a year and the use of space is so smart that it seems not a day was wasted. Homes like these remind us that without challenges, you can’t have boundary breaking design, so if you’re wanting to renovate, don’t let the size of your canvas stop you from thinking big.
