Such a magnificent house seldom comes on the market. It has been our home for the past 20+ years. We are interior designers that designed and built the house. Our passion for life is reflected in every detail in the house. This is a unique opportunity for someone in search for a special home.
Following is what was said about the house.
Nestled in the exclusive suburb of Waterkloof, surrounded by embassies and architecturally designed homes, we have pleasure in presenting a residence and home like no other. Set amongst the beauty and abundance of the Jacaranda trees that line these avenues this is not only one of the historically oldest, but the most sought-after suburbs to reside.
The house and gardens were designed by Wessel van Deventer Interiors and have been featured in interior magazines as well as, the feature of a Top Billing TV program.
Palatial in its stature, this home welcomes you though its manicured and magical gardens and has been designed around a large internal courtyard garden and pool. The grand entrance and staircase lead into a reception hall, grand dining room and the formal lounge for intimate soirées or concerts. A bespoke chefs kitchen with integrated appliances and central island has a separate coffee station, scullery and pantry rooms servicing it all of which makes entertaining for family or formal occasions, effortless.
The central courtyard with landscaped gardens and pool is surrounded by stacking and sliding doors onto the long lounge and dining areas which connect the whole house together. Here you will be able to easily entertain with a specialized secret drinks cabinet alongside an integrated gas braai and preparation cabinet for those summer evenings.
The main house comprises four beautifully decorated bedrooms (2 ens) of which one or, if required, two bedrooms could be utilized for your home office or study. The master suite boasts a walk-in dressing room with a featured bath, separate shower and 2 vanities which showcases the finest cabinetry.

These apartments can be separate or combined. They may be rented out or used as a granny flat or home office. There is one garage here and a laundry area.
