Want to see how technology is reinventing real estate? SA Home Owner magazine, published by Times Media, has launched on its website a virtual reality tour of a grand holiday home in Kenton, Eastern Cape.

The six-bedroom house is also featured in the April edition of the magazine, which is now on shelves.

Kre8tiv Spaces, a media company based in the Eastern Cape, put together the virtual tour using Matterport 3D cameras and software.

It allows viewers to travel to the mouth of a river estuary on the Sunshine Coast and take in the spectacular views from the home’s glass-panelled balcony before strolling through the rooms.

The design and layout of this house make the most of its position by incorporating loads of light, open-plan living areas and bright primary colours.

There is also a “dollhouse” virtual view to see the entire layout in 3D, and a floor-plan view for a flat layout.

The tour has additional options to view the tour on Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear virtual reality headsets.
