When October 2010

Where Umhlanga, KwaZulu-Natal

What A family eco-home… There was never any doubt about what sort of home the Christodoulous would have when they moved from Gauteng to Umhlanga outside Durban in KZN. ‘Chris and I are Greek Cypriots; our focus is family, casual entertaining and the outdoors,’ says Monica Christodoulou. The couple found an ideal spot on the edge of an eco-estate overlooking the sea and created their dream home with the help of Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Architects, Guy Thomson Interior Design and Brendon Edwards Landscapes.
