Character, space, comfort and security! This 1880 Arcadian beauty has it all. 3 living rooms with wooden floors, high pressed-steel ceilings and a fireplace each. Ample space in 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms (incl. a cottage) – for a big family, home office/ practice or hobbies. The large kitchen has a bar and space for a dining room set. Outside, there’s a pool, big entertainment area and many seating areas. The extensive security system is top notch and largely solar-powered. Aircons in every room create comfort. A garage, tools space and many built-in cupboards provide endless storage space.

223 m2 floor space in main house, 65 m2 in outbuildings, double garage (25 m2) and tools storage (17 m2) on a 1045 m2 plot!

Allow us to take you on a tour!

Steps with original decorative tiles lead to the covered stoep. The entrance hall takes you back to the 1880s with a pressed-steel ceiling, solid wooden doors, period wallpaper and decorative tiles. This leads to 2 living spaces on either side, each with an original fireplace, wooden floors and pressed-steel ceilings.

Room 1 (14 m2) is now a cinema. Its square shape is very versatile: turn this into a work-from-home office, play lounge, home-schooling space or formal seating area!  Room 2 (18 m2) is now a library with wall-to-wall bookcases. An office corner overlooks the garden via a period bay window.

From the cinema, a second door passes by a big built-in closet and leads to the 2nd bedroom (15 m2) with en-suite bathroom (4 m2). This room has a huge North-facing window. One wall has floor-to-ceiling built-in cupboards.

The master bedroom (14 m2) fits a king-size bed. It has an en-suite bathroom (5 m2), walk-in closet (4 m2), dressing (7 m2) and… a dream of an outdoors bathroom (11 m2). You can bathe under the stars and palm tree! The shower is a real eye-catcher: a semi-circle of mosaic surrounds you!

Back in the hallway, we pass a built-in linen cupboard and enter the 3rd living room (22 m2). This room has a fireplace, built-in bookcases and a bay window with seat. This room fits an 8-person dining set with still space to spare for a sitting area around the fire and a china cabinet. Imagine the options for this space if you set up your dining room in the family kitchen!

The kitchen consists of 3 areas: main kitchen (15 m2), scullery (3 m2) and dining space (12 m2) – all with solid wood cupboards and counter top. The L-shaped counter creates a bar that separates kitchen space from dining space. Your family and guests can hang out in the dining space when you cook; or turn the dining space into a play or study area so you can supervise your children’s schoolwork or playtime as you prepare family meals. A door leading to a side stoep with braai.

The second wing has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms: one of each on each floor. The upstairs bathroom (12 m2) is magnificent with a 2-person bathtub, shower, toilet and sink. The mosaic windows filter the Northern sunlight and create a dream-like effect. Both bedrooms are 13 m2and have windows on 2 sides. The downstairs bathroom is 8 m2.

Now we’re in the back yard – but there’s more. You reach the pool via a rose garden. The garden is water-wise with indigenous flowering succulents and lemon trees. On the Northern side of the pool are spacious, versatile outbuildings:

  • ·       An elevated terrace with a braai platform
  • ·       A covered entertainment area with views onto the pool and the rose garden (21 m2)
  • ·       An additional room, currently a gym (14 m2). This is connected to the entertainment area for a true appreciation of the space, yet separate enough to give it a different function – use it as a creative workshop for example!
  • ·       A cottage with a studio apartment (21 m2) and a brand new bathroom (9 m2). The 2 entrances makes it ideal for tenants who can access a private part of the garden.

Need more storage space? The double garage is connected to a tools area. Three additional covered storage spaces are ideal for gardening/ pool tools or bicycles.
