Like the rest of the home, the terrace radiates understated elegance, but it’s not in any sense a ‘show space’. It’s all about the warmth and everyday ease of a practical family home, which Sumari, her property developer husband, Gerhard, and their children, Nicola, 11, and Luan, 10, have adored living in since it was completed two years ago.
