This prestigious home was purchased for R 4000 000 in October 2013. The owners subsequently made extensive alterations that included:
oRenovating the family cinema with a customised AV cabinet providing built-in cooling for AV devices.
oThe 2nd bathroom was renovated and an extended a bay window specifically provided to fit the bathtub with its own lighting system. The bathroom was finished off with top quality tiles, Hansgrohe taps, and mixers were installed.
oThe master en-suite bathroom shower was retiled and new mixer taps fitted.
oThe 3rd bathroom in the home gymnasium was also extensively renovated.
oDirect access to the garage was provided via a transparent covered walkway.

oAdditional built in cabinets were installed in the scullery.
oThe domestic quarters were fitted with built-in cabinets and a DSTV connection.

Key aspects about the house and the neighbourhood security:
oBoomed suburb with only one entrance.
oThe homeowner is presently the neighbourhoods security committee chairperson. The residents committee have implemented a security solution operated by TRSS comprising a smart camera system using visual analytics programme to determine suspicious activity. It is remotely monitored and only triggers an alert where action is required from the offsite monitoring room. Armed response is than activated should the issue warrant it. Since the cameras were installed in January 2015, there have had no major security incidents and the enclave is one of the safer neighbourhoods in Fourways.
oThere is a security WhatsApp group in place for enclave residents.
oThe house has CCTV cameras at main entrance and the garage (however, they are not connected since there are community cameras situated immediately outside the property).
oDouble garage with double carport with a separate remote and garage door entrance.
oElectric fencing surrounding all borders.
oGas stove and fireplace.
oAir conditioner units in gymnasium, cinema and master bedroom.
oSecurity alarm has 6 buttons remote to alarm different options as well as panic button. SMS alerts are also sent if alarm is triggered. Alarm can also be activated by SMS.
oCeiling is insulated with Think Pink insulation.

The house is well situated for easy access to Randburg and Sandton City whilst still enjoying the benefits of the shopping malls and entertainment facilities available in Fourways Mall, Monte Casino, Cedar Square and many others.
