Modernist Coromandel farmhouse refreshed by Frankie Pappas

by Editors Staff

The Coromandel Property manor home is the centrepiece of an enormous stretch of farmland set between Lydenberg and Dullstroom in Mpumalanga province, about three hours’ drive from Johannesburg. Designed by Marco Zanuso in 1969 and accomplished in 1975, it’s a now a pilgrimage web site for younger South African architects, a pioneering research in ‘passive’ design and skilfully settling a home – a really large home – in nature; welcome to the celebrated, modernist Coromandel farmhouse. 

The property, a composite of what have been 24 smaller farms, was established by the South African retail mogul and husbandry hobbyist Sydney Press, who hoped it could develop into a benchmark for agricultural excellence within the nation. Press wished to construct a snug part-time pile at Coromandel. His spouse Victoria, a New York-born dressmaker and a eager follower of latest structure, noticed a set of dual Zanuso-designed rural retreats in Sardinia, and recommended he was the person for the job.
