A lord & lady you will be, perched on this luxe Lion's Head property.
This elegant Cape Edwardian estate was once the stately home of Sir John and Lady Ellerman, distinguished shipping magnates and investors. Now privately owned, this estate has one of the most spectacular views in all of South Africa. With amenities ranging from lounges, libraries and dining rooms to verandas, villas and whiskey lounges (oh my!), a gathering here with your gorgeous globetrotters would be a good idea, indeed.
