Our June 2013 House of the Month was built by (and belongs to) Deidre and Bobby Loxton. Complete with Nguni cattle, goats, sheep and chickens roaming the 200ha space, this contemporary country home in Stanford in the Western Cape is the perfect place for this artist and her family to relax. Interior designers, Arnaldo O’Shea (Deidre’s son) and Dieter Rauch came up with the concept behind the rustic feel of the house. Worn Persian rugs, inviting fireplaces and mismatched items from the past make up the interior of this beautiful home, giving it a distinctive, warm farmhouse feel.
