A dream house by the sea Enjoying breathtaking views over the Indian Ocean, Blue Horizon is a luxurious residence offering the ultimate in comfort and relaxation. Newly built to the highest specification, the property occupies a spectacular clifftop location on an exclusive, secure development: the Sparrebosch Clifftop Estate. This estate holds the world famous Pezula Golf Course and is next to the Pezula hotel and Spa and Gym. The house, in a private corner of the estate, looks out onto a secluded beach which is accessible by a walking trail starting on the golf course. A large, single storey property built around a sheltered central courtyard, the open plan layout maximizes natural light to create a serene and restful ambiance. The master bedroom and living/dining areas open out to a long verandah overlooking on one side the beautiful shoreline of the Sparrebosch Nature Reserve (a 45-hectare Afromontane forest which is part of the Knysna Coastal Conservancy) and on the other side the beach and ocean beyond – the ideal spot for a sundowner or a morning of whale and dolphin watching.
