This fully furnished 3 bedroom structure inspired the name Dogtrot House, which makes reference to the log cabin residences common in south-eastern America throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries.
This home is characterised by a central "breezeway" that typically separates living and sleeping areas from a dining room and kitchen.
One side of the single-storey building accommodates the family dining area and kitchen, while the other side contains 3 bedrooms with 2 ensuite bathrooms and lounge.
Both sides open out to the central corridor, exposing them to the elements without compromising privacy.
The rooms are separate but in a strong relationship to one another and the landscape.
The space made in the centre is for gathering, eating, reading, braaing and is open to the landscape and the breeze. One has no choice but to be outside when moving between rooms, in this way one is always made aware of the landscape and the weather!
The Dogtrot House celebrates the frugality and elegance of shelter, it is a house for the carrying out of family life in the elements, it is a house that is everything you need and nothing you didn't. It is humble, poetic and without presence and no doubt the perfect weekend getaway!!
Everything in the house will remain with the sale.
Walking distance from the Marina, this house is a must see!
