A FARMER AT HEART
On the doorstep of Fourways, a hop and a skip from Lanseria Airport and rubbing shoulders with Steyn City and Dainfern, is this glamorous urban farm. Here you can farm with animals and vegetables and live in a sleek, modern mansion where you can proudly receive guests. (Navigate the 3D model of the house that accompanies this listing, and be amazed.) In addition to this gentleman's residence, there are paddocks, fields and two tunnels, beehives and herb gardens, sheep and chickens, roses and fountains, fruit trees and a swimming pool.
This little gem of a farm is on a good, tarred road and in a secure, boomed suburb 5 minutes from some of the best shops, restaurants, schools, gyms, medical services and entertainment in the country.
The main house would function well as a family home or as an events venue. It is master-built, with high end, on-trend finishes.
A long, brick-paved drive leads past the fields to the house which is set well back from the road
The approach to the front door is through a large courtyard, densely planted and joyful with a fountain. Sliding doors open the family room to this courtyard as well, for fresh breezes in complete safety. This room can also be air-conditioned, and there is a wood-burning fireplace for cooler weather.
There is another, formal, living room, also with a fireplace, and between these two rooms is a dining space fit for celebrations and memorable meals. All of these rooms lead out to the patio, shaded by tall trees and with the pool alongside. There are spectacular sunset views from here, across the gardens and the fields. The many indigenous trees attract abundant birdlife, and in the formal gardens the central French fountain sets an elegant tone. Town-planning permission has already been obtained to subdivide the grounds into four separate properties which might be sold off individually.
There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms in the homestead of which two are en suite. There is also a study or sewing room tucked away close to the master suite.
The kitchen is a dream of cool white French country style, complete with a pretty chandelier. It has a five-plate gas hob with electric oven below, and another under-counter electric oven alongside. The separate scullery keeps the kitchen clear of mundane clutter.
Close to the kitchen is a cold room / wine cellar, as well as a large laundry. There are additional storage rooms and plenty of staff accommodation as well. None of these rooms have been photographed. Please contact me for a viewing appointment, so that you might be shown the many other aspects of this property which are not illustrated here.
Potable water is supplied from two boreholes and stored in 6 Jojo tanks with a pressure booster. A commercial water filtration system ensures the crystal clarity of the drinking water. The bank of 24 solar panels keeps costs down, while a powerful generator provides uninterrupted current to every plug point and appliance, including the security installation, in the event of Eskom failure.
There is lock-up garaging for 4 vehicles and ample open parking on this 3,4 hectare property.
Note that the extensive collection of cycads, in the ground and in pots, is not included in the sale.
