With priceless 180-degree views across Hout Bay of one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world, Chapman’s Peak Drive, this designer home is now available for sale on the private property market.
Commanding attention from its front row position in Hout Bay Heights overlooking the Bay’s private Yacht Club, popular Bay Harbour Market and vibrant fishermen’s wharf, its three-story elevation is a marvel of expansive space which stretches across three levels of floor to ceiling glass.
Designed and built just four years ago, it stands as homage to owner Dieter Losskarn’s passion for German precision, sleek lines and superlative lifestyle living.
Architecturally exact, Bay Harbour House maintains a light-steel ‘bone’ structure complete with exposed ceilings which anchor a ‘rib cage’ of steel lines as an interior design feature. The intention is a replica of a classic luxury car showroom, mirrored by smooth polyurethane floors and vast silent sliding steel-framed doors and windows.
Bay Harbour House is open plan living at its finest, whether you are looking for a home filled with space and light or a space to fill with a commercial business or retail brand.
Grand ground floor welcome
Its impressive entrance gate set on the lip of the property features a sweeping exposed aggregate driveway which mirrors the surrounding granite as it descends the incline into the ground floor triple-size garage.
The ‘garage’ space with its high gloss polyurethane floor and uniformly spaced windows at both seated and standing eye-level towards the panorama of mountains and secluded bay is an exact replica of all the lines and finishes rendered throughout this three-story home.
Its three en-suite bedrooms each command one entire level of their own and feature signature wrap around windows. A high-tech lit stairwell leads up to the second floor, where a 7-metre high ceiling comes into play across on expanse of dining room, fireplace, kitchen, pantry, guest bathroom, the second bedroom en-suite and a stainless steel encased veranda.
Double story Majesty
Step out onto the balcony and a fresh breeze rushes to meet you as you take in a visual cocktail from the Noordhoek side of Chapman Peak Drive and visitor’s lookout point across the sweep of the Hout Bay harbor, beach, Hout Bay village and into the lush hips of the Constantia valley and Kirstenbosch Gardens just beyond the lip.
In the bathrooms, expect heat treated metal doors, metallic silver mosaic bathroom tiles and European interior fittings as well as steampunk style exposed copper fittings and a modern double-volume copper bath in the main bedroom overlooking its own Romeo and Juliet verandah.
The Third floors Eagle’s eye
The third floor is dedicated to the main bedroom, with a separate alcove shower, enclosed toilet and a study area overlooking the second floor below with its own row of elevated windows with views onto the mountain range above Hout Bay.
With imminent fully development of the harbor and developments already underway, Bay Harbour Houses’ sweeping views are assured since there is no available land to build in front and the neighbouring mountainside is already claimed by a Russian business man continuing development of the renowned Lichtenstein Castle and surrounds.

About Hout Bay:
Hout Bay, or the Republic of Hout Bay as it is affectionately known by locals, is a fantastic Atlantic seaboard beach lifestyle neighbourhood in Cape Town that offers something for everyone, any day of the week. Just +- 20kms (around 30 minutes) from Cape Town’s CBD it is just around the corner from Llundudno and Camp’s Bay offering less tourist traffic and more equitable property prices.
Hout Bay nestles between the mountain, valley and sea with a community focus on its bustling harbor, horse farms, international schools, hiking trails and sea sport activities and trendy restaurants and art galleries.
Hout Bay is well known for its vibrant Bay Harbour Market, Chapman’s Peak Hotel, the five-star Tintswalo Atlantic and the world-famous Chapman’s Peak Drive, its yachting marine, fishing and boat trips to Duiker (Seal) Island.
Hout Bay is so called by the Dutch meaning Bay of Wood, when passing ships would repair and build their wooden vessels from the thickly-forested mountain slopes which also offered a good water supply.
The area was originally made up of two farms, which were slowly subdivided to make way for urban expansion. While still maintaining its rural atmosphere, the area of Hout Bay is home to about 12,000 residences inhabited by a population of about 42,000 people.
