Newlands Family Home – Home Tour

Stylish fashion brand Desray needs no introduction. In fact Desray
dresses make a regular appearance in South Africa’s leading glossy
magazines. You will also find Desiree Jearey’s beautiful garments in
more than 60 boutiques all over South Africa, or in one of their four
exclusive shops in the Western Cape. But today we will not be gushing
over her classic dresses, trendy scarves or flattering tops. No, we are
heading to Newlands for a peek at Desiree’s gorgeous family home.
Desiree says she never really fell in love with the house. They bought
it purely for position and area. “It was quite an ugly 1950s house but
it had huge potential and was easily moulded. After having our first
child, we knew that we needed to leave the long summer nights in
Fresnaye to go to the very leafy suburbs of Newlands to be near all the
great schools,” says Desiree. The once ugly house is now a beautiful and
comfortable home where they like to spend time with family and friends.
We really love the relaxed feel of the house, which reminds me of a
holiday villa.
