St. Leon 10 Residence In Cape Town, South Africa Is The Ultimate Getaway Home (PHOTOS)

If we owned a home that looked anything like the St. Leon 10 Residence in Cape Town, South Africa, we can't see a reason we'd ever want to leave. Ever.

Our friends at The Pinnacle List shared photos of this stunner, which is located in the suburb of Bantry Bay near the Lion’s Head Nature Reserve. The panoramic views of the 12 Apostle Mountains and beaches from the rear of the house are simply mesmerizing.

Completed in 2008 and designed by SAOTA and Antoni Associates, the home looks like a squat one-story dwelling from the street. But in actuality, when you enter the secure privacy gates, you'll see that it's built into a rock-faced slope and the upper levels appear to float over the sea below. On the lowest level, sliding glass walls that reveal a bar and lounge area open up to a stunning infinity pool with an integrated spa.
