Eclectic Beach Cottage with Dual Living.
Hidden at the end of a long panhandle driveway and just two minutes from the beach, this beach-meets-bushveld cottage with wrap-around braai balcony has quirky, eclectic and quite delightful rustic finishes. Despite its relaxed cottagey feel, it is nevertheless a good sized family home boasting 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, main ensuite, and a large, sitting-cum-dining room with tantalising glimpses of sea view open-plan to a country kitchen. Downstairs there is a spacious, two roomed flat, garaging and a further utility room.
Lime-washed timber floors run throughout this 12-year old home, which is built on the upper floor, with double-volume ceilings with exposed white painted roof trusses against washed roof timbers that, together with the timber-frame picture windows towards the outside balcony and white linen full-length curtains with thin steel curtain rails, give the living and dining rooms a distinct beach cottage feel, whilst natural poplar uprights and cross-beams at the front entrance, allude to a bushveld lodge. A bagged brick wall finish throughout the house emphasises the delightful rustic finishes.
The sitting room features a welcoming 3-tier open fireplace and chimney breast and a double mantle-piece topped with an old hardwood beam, recessed wood storage to one side and on the other a recessed shelf for TV and hi-fi, with distressed timber cupboards below. The open-plan kitchen with separate pantry has a charming rustic, country feel. There are screeded concrete floors, concrete worktops with natural pine cupboards below, a laboratory basin sink, separate prep bowl, a Siemens electric oven and a gas hob on a central concrete butchers block island with iron overhead utensil rack.
The wrap-around veranda has dark timber beams with reeded ceilings between and a laatjie front parapet wall with a wide heavy duty timber railing. Some sea view will be retained when the plot in front is built on and it offers attractive additional indoor/outdoor living space.
The large main bedroom with walk-in, cupboarded dressing area and wall heater is ensuite to a full bathroom and also opens to the veranda where there is a pretty, very organic, custom made burglar door so that the owners can go to sleep with the door open, lulled by the gentle murmur of breaking waves just two minutes away.
Past a small study nook there are two further bedrooms, the one built-in cupboards, the other with its own exterior entrance, both with pleasing views to the greenbelt at the rear. There is a full family bathroom.
Entry to the home is up a broad flight of steps with timber balustrades that lead to a large dark concrete landing with an inset design made from beach stones. There are heavy duty timber uprights supporting a partly reeded ceiling of cross-beams. The wide timber front door, set between two picture windows opens into the hallway.
The two-roomed flat has completely separate access and, being on the ground floor, is tailor-made for an elderly relative. Besides living room, there is a large bedroom with washed timber ceilings and a large shower bathroom with charming fish bowl ceramic basin. There is also a large extra downstairs storage or kids playroom that is separate from the flat.
The garaging has been designed for 4 cars, two each in tandem, with extra high ceilings and high customised doors so a boat, caravan or 4x4 vehicle with roof tent can be stored comfortably. Besides the garaging there is secure parking for at least six cars.
Picturesque Clovelly and Steenberg golf courses, the Constantia Wine Route and numerous characterful and delicious restaurants from Noordhoek to Kalk Bay and Simonstown are all under 20 minutes away from Kommetjie. Besides glorious beaches, Kommetjie is also world-famous for surfing events. But this rural village always retains its peaceful atmosphere, even in peak holiday season and is renowned for its long, gentle summer evenings.
