Saxon has witnessed history within its walls as it became home to Nelson Mandela after he was released from prison. It was during the time that he used the serene setting of Saxon to edit his autobiography “Long Walk to Freedom”. The welcoming entrance with stately staircase sweeps around a central glass dome, permitting natural light to blend with and enhance the contemporary African décor and handcrafted ethnic art effects. Leading off this area is a boutique shop, piano lounge, smoking library and the dining room. Set in six acres of lush landscape gardens, Saxon has been designed to capture and embrace its nautral environment. One of the design themes is the extensive use of water. The central point of the water theme is the magnificent nine hundred and twenty square metre swimming pool.
