5 Bedroom House in Blair Atholl Estate
R 26 500 000
This original Mediterranean Spanish style home was designed by Antonia Villarroel, partner of the world-renowned Estudio de Arquitectura Mevin Villarroel.
The design marries modern building concepts with the surrounding bushveld and golf course and through its design, invites nature into your daily life.
The homes genius layout allows for views of the Cradle of Humankind and the entire Par 5, 10th hole of the Blair Atholl golf course.
The Swiss-based master builders intention has been to combine a prime location in Blair Atholl, a world class architect firm and first class interior designers from Italy to create a very individual and upmarket home that serves as a strong statement for its future owner. This home is unique in its own kind and concept.
The travertine floors and the bathrooms have been designed by Estudio Arquee in Spain. The blocks for the travertine floors and white Carrara bathrooms have been personally hand-picked in Italy and cut according to colour and size suitable for each room. The slab sizes vary from 2,5m x 1,8m to 3cm x 7cm for a mosaic that covers almost the entire lounge floor.
Further suppliers from Italy were Gessi for the taps and shower heads and Siccis for the Murano glass tiles in the specially designed two level swimming pool.
The fusion of modern design and natural materials finds its continuation in the top of the range Valcucine kitchen, also imported directly from the factory in Italy. The combination of the glass interior, walnut doors and the 6cm thick white Carrara marble tops are stunning and unique.
The spacious triple volume entrance hall offers undisturbed views of the garden with numerous water features and lakes, as well as the golf course. The hall leads to a spacious lounge with sliders onto an outside terrace and pool area, all tiled with colour-true travertine tiles. The lounge leads to a cinema room and a double volume dining room. The dining room is linked to the fully fitted and specialist designer kitchen with walk-in fridge and separate scullery, and has an independent terrace with barbeque facilities. The ground floor also consists of 4 large en-suite bedrooms, 4 garages with double volume space, allowing for the future fitting of a mezzanine floor. A work from home office or study, separate childrens play room and double staff accommodation .
Upstairs, the 250m master bedroom with wooden floors, includes a study, walk-in closet, a luxurious bathroom and a beautiful scenic terrace with stupendous views.
Visitors to Blair Atholl Private Lifestyle Estate are invariably awe struck by its overwhelming beauty. The blend of old-world country estate living and modern amenities set amidst the undulating landscape of the golf course, surrounding riverine flora and beautiful Magaliesberg mountain range is somehow familiar, as though you inexplicably belong to this almost surreal experience.
Half of Blair Atholl's 600 hectares stretches across land that previously belonged to world-famous golfer Gary Player and boasts some of the lowest density housing in the country - with an average of one home to every two hectares of land. This means that the 329 stands (at an average 3,700m each) are separated by at least half an acre of natural vegetation, so there will always be plenty of space between neighbours. Stands are also positioned in such a way as to obscure both the road and neighbours from view, as far as is possible.
Blair Atholl is run by friendly and helpful staff in a totally secure environment where children can play and safely ride their bikes, reminding us how living should be. The Estate has populated the area with buck that roam the estate. In summary, living in Blair Atholl is a very special experience.
Landscapers and conservationists continue to remain a permanent feature of the estate, constantly maintaining the grounds, nature parks, bridle paths and the golf course. Sensitive ecological areas will be left untouched, while wetlands have been restored and replanted. If one stands just north of the stone-clad clubhouse and looks back at it through a screen of indigenous bush, you could be at an exclusive private bush lodge, miles from anywhere. Visit the rustic halfway house reached via its wooden walkways and decking in a cool shady glade, just off the Crocodile River, and you could be on the banks of a trout stream in the mountains. Walk through the meadows that flank the 10th hole, sweeping down and over the valley, framed by mountains hazy in the distance, and you could be on the Garden Route. Its hard to believe such an undisturbed natural gem could be within striking distance of Johannesburg, and just fifteen minutes from Fourways Shopping Mall and five minutes from Lanseria International Airport
This magnificent home is on the market for ZAR26.5 million.
