About Bingley Place
Bingley Place is a majestic Villa in a prime location, nestling just above the sea with exclusive Barley Bay beach directly below. Location, location, location! The elegant 'Grande Dame' of Camps Bay is one of the last remaining original residences, was built in 1920 and boasts vistas of Cape Towns famous Table Mountain, The Twelve Apostles and Atlantic Ocean, from every room in the Villa.
The views are like framed paintings but are ever changing due to weather patterns and the breath-taking sunsets have to be seen to be believed. This luxurious, self-catering private boutique accommodation along with the sound of crashing waves on the rocks below will lift your spirits and refresh your soul.
Externally, the house has been restored to her former glory and internally, she has had a complete make-over from kitchens and en-suite bathrooms to the travertine floors and pool. The elegance of the original sash windows and architraves expertly blend the old with the new. The warm ambiance wraps its arms around you from the moment you enter this stunning home, filling you with a sense of peace, security and love!
The Villa is an elegant, double-storied house which can be rented out as a 5 bedroom en-suite self-catering but fully serviced villa with pool, or as two separate self-contained homes. There is no internal access between the two floors and they therefore have their own entrances.
The accommodation on the upper level has three bedrooms all en-suite. The two main bedrooms have king-sized beds, the finest percale linen, ocean views and the added feature of large baths opening up into the bedrooms. The third bedroom (two singles that, on request, can be made up into a king-sized bed), has its own private patio with views of the sea and mountain as well as a secluded outdoor Victorian bath in the garden!
The modern open plan, fully equipped kitchen looks through the sitting room with fireplace, to the glass enclosed balcony which can be opened up completely to bring the sea and mountains into the house! The kitchen also leads onto an elegant dining room with beautiful eight-seater Victorian table plus piano! From the dining room you step out onto the pool patio which is perfect for entertaining and dipping into the crystal clear pool which overlooks the sea not 30m away!
