A new residential estate in Cape Town's upmarket Bantry Bay is nearing completion. Four of the six units will be finished by the end of 2021 and are selling for R39 million each.

Bantry Bay, nestled at the foot of Lion's Head between Sea Point and Clifton, is the home of Luxia Ravine. A luxury residential offering by Dogon Group Properties, the development features six units in three separate buildings.

The four-storey units, almost identical in design and floor size, are situated on Ravine Road, one block away from the rocky shoreline, with an elevated view of the Atlantic Ocean.

"Ravine Road is a particularly sought-after road, it is a cul-de-sac close to the ocean and enjoys the finest Bantry Bay micro-climate," Dogon Group’s Adrien Epstein told Business Insider South Africa.

Work on Luxia Ravine began in 2017 and, because of its positioning on a slope and recessed design into the mountainside, the earthworks alone took two years to complete.

All six units feature three bedrooms, five bathrooms, a double garage, and spacious balconies with a total floor size of 352 square-metres. Differences between the various units include the size of the driveways and gardens, with the latter ranging from 16 square-metres to 91 square-metres, and that some feature a heated swimming pool.

Luxia Ravine's ground floors feature a 2.4-metre-high automated tandem garage, lobby, laundry room, staff cloakroom, storeroom, and server room. A private elevator offers access directly from the ground floor to the top floor.

The units' first floors contain two en suite bedrooms, a dressing area, linen storage area, and patio.

The second floor features the sea-facing primary bedroom suite with a walk-in dresser and lounge extending onto a private patio.

An open-plan living room and dining area complete the top floor of the unit, which also includes a guest cloakroom, kitchen – imported from Italy – with scullery, pantry cupboard, and breakfast counter. A wraparound terrace and a spacious patio with frameless glass balustrades offers a panoramic view of the surrounds.

All units are equipped with air-conditioning, underfloor heating in the living area and bathrooms, and a backup generator. Site-sourced Cape granite trimmings are used throughout.

Interior designers Gerna and Werner Ernsts have used rich wood finishes to juxtapose the hard concrete façade, with the expansive use of glass allowing for natural light to stream in.

Indigenous plants, including milkwoods, forest elders, and wild olive trees, dot the estate, fed by an automated irrigation system linked to a shared borehole.
