Top Billing tours the luxury home of Pretty and Mashudu Shandukani

Top Billing tours the Shandukani's dream house

Top Billing features the home of Pretty and Mashudu Shadukani 3

Both from rural villages in Limpopo, Pretty became a civil engineer and her husband Mashudu a geologist. Their decision to go independent and form a consultancy eleven years ago brought hard work and great rewards.
The couple have mastered the balance between their professional and personal relationship, and while they are used to helping others build their dream homes, it was a welcome and easier change building their own.

Their ally in creating a home for entertaining and family was interior designer Elisha Annandale, who helped customise the décor and furniture for each individual space, including stunning gold finishes, circular details, and striking chandeliers throughout the house.

Beautiful interior architecture means that feature-pieces are chosen sparingly, for greater impact, and luxurious finishes include an imported, spiral staircase wine cellar built under the kitchen. Ironically, no one in the house drinks wine!

Chic pops of colour paired with customised furniture and vibrant Bron Stofberg artworks characterise the interiors, while the outdoors boast daring furniture design, an infinity pool, and a playground.

The fruit trees they’ve planted around the house mean that, in time, Pretty and Mashudu will get to enjoy their own mangoes, litchis, nectarines and peaches. For now, they faithfully watch from their bedroom window, as their future grows.

The master bedroom is a large and luxurious space, which Elisha made to feel cosy and intimate with soft features, area rugs and settees. The reclining massage bed and amazing sound system also help the couple unwind on stressful days.

Perhaps the most luxurious feature is the shared walk in closet and dressing room, though Pretty rightfully got the bigger side to accommodate the amazing shoe and bag collection she is accumulating on her travels around the world.

Pretty’s twelve years as a civil engineer and Mashudu’s sixteen as a geologist afford them the finer things, and they credit their faith to God as central to their happiness, success and the chance to broaden the horizons of their daughters Afunwaho and Oritonda.

Having laid solid foundations, The Shandukanis aren’t forgetting to enjoy life!
