ENCHANTING VICTORIAN CHARACTER HOME
Warm and welcoming Golden oldie with beautiful oregon floors, sash windows ad space, space, space.... Set in a lush tropical paradise of garden with pool and the ultimate bonus of a second dwelling. Once in a while you see a house which just welcomes you home - this is one of those! Because it is an older home (built in 1937), it is solid and well built, the rooms are larger, and the high ceilings give a feeling of volume. The plan is simple and straightforward and so translates well to a modern home with flow to covered, sheltered patio, garden and pool. The exquisite gleaming narrow strip oregon floors throughout, the sash windows, original doors and architraves and Victorian fireplace with copper cowl are the sweetner.
The home is set in a tranquil, lush garden with mature trees, a feature mountain pool with its rock surround and attendant waterfall, and a pole lapa as well as a covered patio with built-in-braai off the informal living room all create peace and harmony. A huge bonus is the separate, self-contained cottage, comprising one huge all-purpose space with a kitchenette and en-suite bathroom, which could provide dual dwelling possibilities, home office space, or, as now, a very handy extra rental income. Off street,secure parking is provided by a double covered carport with auto sliding gate, screened from the garden very attractively.
From the secure entrance gate and landscaped front garden, steps lead to the small porch and entrance door. An oregon hallway divides the home. To the left the formal lounge boasts windows on two aspects, filling the space with light, and the original Victorian fireplace with it's copper cowl, is an interior angled wall, making the heat distribution doubly effective. The formal dining room leads from the lounge, and glass French doors lead from there to the informal living/family room, currently used as a pub. From the family room French doors open to the covered patio on one side, and the kitchen is semi open plan on the other. This creates a wonderful, logical flow from the kitchen making most of our South African lifestyle of outdoor living and entertaining. The kitchen is large, flooded with light from north picture windows, extremely generously cupboarded and has a built-in oven and hob and plumbing for both washing machine and dishwasher. An L shaped counter provides the kitchen and provides informal dining/breakfast bar space.
Three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a guest cloakroom complete the accommodation offered. The main bedroom is charming with 2 sash windows, generous built-in cupboarding and a full en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has the original bay window, with its lovely warm wood tones. Both second and third bedroom are divided by cupboarding and are able to interlead.
This lovely home exudes character, warmth and comfort and makes good common sense as an investment on top of that. What more could you ask from a property?
