A bright and spacious open plan loft apartment with high ceilings and mezzanine bedroom with study. The tall industrial windows let plenty of light stream in and offer spectacular views out to Lion’s Head and Signal Hill. Situated in a gorgeously renovated warehouse in trendy and upcoming Woodstock, Flat Twelve is a great home base from which to explore Cape Town.
Flat Twelve is a one of a handful of unique apartments in Sussex Studios, a gorgeous renovated warehouse in Woodstock. The open-plan flat is double (practically triple) volume, with a very high, sloping ceiling and a lofty mezzanine. There’s plenty of room up there for a queen-sized bed made up with a king-sized duvet and sheets of Egyptian cotton, a walk-in closet and a well-appointed workspace (complete with a fast, reliable fibre internet connection). Downstairs, the kitchen is remarkable for its raw wood shelves and counter, carved by a local craftsman. The kitchen is also equipped with a gas stove, an electric oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and everything else you might need to whip up a midnight snack or a three-course meal.
This large, clean white space fills to overflowing with golden light in the afternoons. We recommend lounging in the hanging nest chair with a good book when you find yourself in a contemplative mood. The elegant table and bench are locally sourced, as are the clever line-drawings of Woodstock streets that you’ll find around the apartment, and we hope you will take as much pleasure in all our greenery as we do. At night, the north-facing wall transforms into a gigantic, private cinema screen with the help of our stylish Benq projector.
You know your kids best. The mezzanine staircase does have a hand rail running along the wall, but it's a very open space. If you think your child could get a bit too adventurous with heights then it might not be suitable for them.
