Peek Inside a Breathtaking Mod Beach House in South Africa

Though seemingly plain and reserved on the exterior, this mod wooden cabin on South Africa's Plettenberg Bay is far less straightforward on the inside—and in a rather exciting way. A luxurious 13,000 square feet of space is spread over three floors, all connected by a slightly sinuous, totally sexy wooden staircase, suspended in mid-air by metal ropes. As Marie Claire Maison details, this sleek centerpiece stands in dynamic contrast with more neutral furnishings, including warmer-toned South African crafts and reclaimed benches and tables.

The house, designed by Cape Town-based architecture studio SAOTA and interiors firm Cecil & Boyd, includes five ocean-view bedroom suites, not to mention a lengthy pool located just a few steps away from the sandy beach. Swoon.
