The best of South Africa

Morrell's Boutique Estate, South Africa © Marie Le Fort

It is a story of passion, that of Bernice and Mike Morrells who, out of a former residence, have created an entirely unique property in the Northern quarters of Johannesburg. The gamble paid off for this boutique estate, which blends the best of South Africa and its European heritage: a love of Provence pervades its lavender beds and pointillist flowering trellises, its embroidery and tin outdoor furniture; witness a touch of British with textiles adorned with bunches of faded roses and elegant silver tea sets; an Italian dolce vita twist emerges with fountains and beds of cut box trees, its barns converted to serve Grand Siècle style suppers. And let’s not forget the beauty of the South African climate, the joie de vivre of its uniformed personnel and the inspirational architecture behind this Cape Dutch manor.
