3 Bed House in Eastwood
Strolling up Dumbarton Road with the row of neatly maintained homes you get to a fork in the road where the Department of Public works is housed in the most beautiful classic older home. The impressive gates and neat gardens let you believe it may be an Embassy or a very important person. Slightly further on the right is the expansive grounds of the presidential home. Our president has his golf course there too. Our quaint and beautiful home is in this road, nestled neatly and with a view of the trees surrounding the adjacent properties. The park-like feel is unusual for a residential area but you need to come and take a stroll with me. Entering this classic you are welcomed with the warm air created by the cozy fire crackling in the living room. Your eyes are automatically drawn upwards to the magnificent pressed ceilings. The wooden floors are a sight to behold. May I mention that you need to bring a pair of socks along, should you wish to view it. The owners have kept the original floors in mint condition. It is a European tradition to wear indoor shoes and what a brilliant idea, the floor is spotless. The home is compact with three lovely sized rooms. The character of the home oozes through every passage and every nook and cranny. This home carries a very special energy and epitomizes home is where the heart is. Come and experience it. The kitchen is a canvas for creativity old fashioned and genuine. It is not unusual to expect a fresh pot of coffee and home-made rusks waiting with warm hospitality. The western side of the home has a sun-room and the owners currently use it as an office. Leaving the back door to the back garden opens opportunities and possibilities. The carports are next to the staff quarters leaving adjacent space for you to decide what to do with.... the current owners use the space as an outdoor summer kitchen in the summer months. Let me take you back to the front of the home. The inviting patio awaits for a gathering of good friends and happy chatter. This home offers a safe and secure environment. The president is well looked after and you will benefit from this. With the President as the neighbour the street and area definitely have enhanced security! Their 24 hour camera with gate guard monitors the landscape straight down Dumbarton Road. The neighbourhood is also on a whatsapp group and community is key.
Loved and adored over the decades this home offers a delightful ambiance in an excellent location. There are so many reasons to view this property but the best one is, you could call this home.
