Alma Road – Rosebank

Richard and Antoinette Bell live in the most exquisitely renovated Victorian in Rosebank (our new neighbourhood, whooop! But I will share more about that later).

The story behind this beauty is that it was built around 1890, a farmer who owned the land built two identical houses for his daughters, and he really must have loved them because these homes are large and gorgeous and no expense was spared, you’ll see what I mean – I am only featuring one of them. What I love about houses built in this era is the craftsmanship – thick walls, intricately tiled floors, pressed ceilings, beautiful fireplaces, solid wooden floors, wrap around verandas and and this one has a killer view of table mountain thrown in.

Richard is a very talented cook and gets his fresh ingredients from the herb and vegetable garden right outside the kitchen.
