This gem of a home, situated in the suburb of Parktown and surrounded by a tranquil setting presents an opportunity not to be missed. This stately home in one of the oldest suburbs in Johannesburg is for sale. Viewings by appointment

Built for the Chief Engineer of the Railways in 1904, this historic house ticks all the boxes when it comes to the grace and opulence of the time. Designed by architects Lack and Emley, who are famous for building the first skyscraper in Johannesburg, this solid house with its large oak trees invite you to sit down on the green lawn for an old-fashioned picnic.

As you ascend the stairs past the wrap around farmhouse verandah, you are taken in by the gracious entrance hall flanked by two reception rooms, both boasting fireplaces as well as enclosed sunrooms. In true Victorian style, high pressed steel ceilings and hand-crafted relief work on the walls decorate the house throughout. Lovingly maintained by the second-generation owner, the wooden detail in the house is immaculate. Even the shelves inside the cupboards are solid Oregon pine.

There are five bedrooms, each with a fireplace and built-in cupboards, except for one. The kitchen has an original coal-stove chimney with a breakfast nook, and a pantry with loads of antique built-in cupboards. There is also a small linen room with solid Oregon shelves off the beautiful corridor.

At the rear of the house, a spacious garage has enough room for a work space and two cars, as well as undercover parking for two more cars. The staff quarters are neat and private. There are three large rooms, each with a small covered patio and ablution facilities. The outbuildings are situated on Falklands Avenue with easy access to the road. The possibilities for subdivision on this nearly 2 000 m2 property are endless.

As you walk up the steps past the two age-old oak trees, you enter a delightful, dreamy pool area with a classic rectangular sparkling pool. There is also a dressing room for bathers to derobe. As you walk towards the front of the property through the tranquil surrounds, you can hear birds singing and experience the calm atmosphere this property emanates.

A property for the discerning buyer. Please contact Stephanie during office hours to arrange a private viewing and treat yourself to the splendour of a well maintained and beautiful example of an bygone era.

Rosebank is a multi-cultural, vibrant and exciting suburb of Johannesburg, with an outdoorsy atmosphere. It is a trendy suburb, business centre and tourist attraction in one of Johannesburg's up-market areas. Although Rosebank is home to many head offices, the district also provides plenty of entertainment to its residents and visitors at its variety of shopping malls, restaurants, markets, luxurious hotels, cinemas, art galleries and night clubs. Parktown is home to many businesses, hospitals, schools, churches and restaurants, whilst still maintaining quiet residential areas. Parktown is an old and established suburb, with leafy avenues and a serene atmosphere. Large mansions are a dominant feature in this exclusive suburb, and new developments are rare.
