How would you like to live in a town where there was no traffic, no sirens, no parking problems and no banks? For a girl who puzzled over how to use an escalator, that sounds like heaven to me. It’s no wonder I fell in love with this beautiful white cottage in the (very) rural town of Koringberg, South Africa. Conservation architect (and owner) Minky Lidchi transformed an existing run down house and rambling garden into a rural slice of paradise. It’s not every day that you see a stark white cottage dotted amongst the countryside of South Africa, which I think makes this house all the more special and unique. My favourite feature has got to be the white shutters over the front door. Oh yes, and it’s available to rent!
Can you just imagine yourself relaxing on the porch as the sun is setting with a good bottle of wine, listening to….nothing!?
