Rietpan Construction has been in business for over 15 years. One of the stand-out moments for us as a company was having one of our projects featured in SA HOME OWNERS Magazine( October 2009):
THE LAKE HOUSE
By Svenja Gernoth, Project Consultant Ruanda van der Walt, Photography Karl Rogers
From the outside a French Provencal style is evident, however it has a African twist. All the window frames and stack doors boast dark meranti timber frames, and elements such as the water feature, and the lovely stone cladding found throughout the exterior add a natural ambience.
In the kitchen, a white countertop was chosen; this creates a fresh appeal and provides it with a chic and modern look. Dark cabinetry offers plenty of storage and stainless steel accessories and appliances further enhance the overall look. Numerous chandeliers create striking focal points. A dual staircase leads to the spacious bedrooms. Each with an en suite bathroom, these rooms reflect the individual personalities of their owners perfectly.
Downstairs, a bar area serves for entertainment purposes and also houses a steam room. This area leads onto the expansive verandah, fitted with a built-in braai. This stunning home also boasts its own indigenous garden which is low maintenance and complementary to the natural surroundings.
With beautiful light and flowing spaces, an abundance of natural elements and uninterrupted views of the tranquil scenery, this abode truly is magnificent and the ultimate lakeside charm.
