Top Billing visits an incredible Nelspruit location

Top Billing tours a stunning Barn style home in Nelspruit

Nelspruit architect Jannie Muller turned the dream of a family home on a nature reserve in Nelspruit, into a very stylish-looking reality. 

Roof design is a major factor in the architecture of this estate. A barn look is the starting point and it makes for a modern, country farm-house atmosphere which suited Jannie’s wife - Reverend Eliska Muller. He insists that she’s the easiest client he’s ever had and it shows in the calm, understated feel of their home.

The low maintenance interiors have an uncomplicated style. Old, steel kitchen cupboards from Jannie’s parents' house were sanded down and re-used, complimenting these natural, unpretentious finishes.

The dining room table was inherited from Jannie’s great grandfather,  and the piano from his great grandmother. One which they hope their daughter Lea will come to play. If the downstairs is what they call a ‘lekker kuier huis’, great for entertaining, then the first floor is all about the couple.

The Muller’s romance began with Jannie meeting Eliska at church. He was bowled over, she enjoyed his travel stories and their first date ended up being a rugby game at Mbombela Stadium. Love was soon in the air and the married couple now have one-year old Lea.

It is for Jannie’s work too. While in town we dropped by a restaurant he recently designed with a rustic but elegant feel. Combining the best of contemporary African and natural elements, it reflects the wild beauty and welcoming climate of The Lowveld.

A gateway to The Kruger Park, the city sees a lot of tourism and being at the hub of our fruit, nut and game industries, local chefs make the most of these fantastic ingredients!
