7 Bedroom House in Arcadia
R 4 700 000
Constructed in 1960, this very well maintained property was at the time, the first flat-roofed white house in Pretoria, and was featured in VOGUE Magazine for it''s design, architecture and art.
This is a beautiful property on 991sqm of prime land next to the University of Pretoria. A short walk from the door step takes you to the said University, or the public transport routes between Menlyn and the CBD, and better yet the Gautrain bus stops for those trips between PTA and JHB.
The house has a combination of polished, deep colored brick floors, the studio rubber surfaces, tiles and carpets upstairs. All the walls are painted white, and are rough plastered brick surfaces
But thats not the main reasons why you would want this property. No! Go through the pictures, visualize it and then call me for a viewing.
Because once you enter, there is a stunning and large entrance hall that leads to a lounge space which is lit up in spectacular fashion by natural light streaming through the north facing glass windows and doors. This spacious space is large enough for entertaining guests or to set up open plan offices. The doors here open to the garden patios and merge the outside space with the inside spaces.
Moving along to the main section of the house and note the conversation pieces in this space. Two large studios used to be a gymnasium, with the main studio sporting 5 meter high ceilings, a ballet bar, a large mirror and that oh so warm underfloor heating.
Staying downstairs, there is a passage leading to one main bedroom which opens directly to the garden, as well as two smaller rooms, all with built in closets. There is a spacious bathroom with a bath and shower that caters for this part of the house. For the growing business, these rooms can easily be used as offices. The main kitchen is also on this level and provides for the back entrance to the driveway.
Moving upstairs, you will find two offices that overlook the studio and lounge spaces as well as a large boardroom with a 10-seater table. Also upstairs, there is a kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom/library - perfect for guests to use, or to convert into more office space and facilities for employees or students whichever the case may be.
The house has a combination of polished, deep colored brick floors, the studio rubber surfaces, tiles and carpets upstairs. All the walls are painted white, and are rough plastered brick surfaces.
In the self-contained apartment section of the house, built in 2009, there is a tiled studio/dining room downstairs, as well as a kitchenette and bathroom with a large bathtub and shower. A spiral staircase leads upstairs to the main bedroom, with laminate wooden floors, overlooking the pool. This bedroom leads to a scullery, en-suite bathroom with a shower, as well as another room originally used as a child''s room. The main bedroom here could easily be used as a lounge instead, leading to the bedroom. This section of the house is inspired by a ship, with round window portals, and the overlook of the pool. The bedroom''s doors open to a platform to jump into the pool, as well as a patio deck.
At the back of the house there is a storage space, and servant''s quarters with a single room and bathroom.
The house has a residential zoning, but has always functioned as a home-office. There are no major structural maintenance needs, only cosmetic needs. The inner workings of the house have been regularly maintained over the years since it''s initial construction in 1960.
So if you are a family, developer, investor or business call me for a viewing!
