3 Bedroom House in Drummond
3 Bedroom House in Drummond
Less than 30 minutes drive from either Durban or Pietermaritzburg and 10 minutes from Hillcrest, this large colonial country house offers the best of country life within easy reach of urban convenience. It is perfectly positioned on a hilltop at the halfway point of the Comrades Marathon.
From its covered veranda and beautiful garden, it offers magnificent views in both directions. Have breakfast watching the sunrise over the Valley of a Thousand Hills or sit in the outdoor Jacuzzi and enjoy sundowners looking out over rural Drummond. There are rolling lawns and plenty of space for dogs, children and outdoor entertainment.
The wide wrap-around veranda with its pillars completes the authentic colonial architecture and provides a wonderful respite from the summer heat as well as a perfect covered area and a deck for braai's or garden parties.
The house itself is in very good decorative order and features a main lounge and a separate dining room that are each 40m2 with beautiful Oregon pine bay windows, floors and doors, 4.5m ceilings and original built in fire-places.
There is a second lounge leading into a country kitchen with a walk-in pantry and breakfast room and an additional small room off the dining room that could be used as a study or artist’s studio. Each bedroom is en suite with Oregon French doors leading into the garden and views of the valley.
There is also a charming self-contained one-bedroom garden cottage that is currently rented out for R3500 per month. The outbuildings include a double garage, a double carport and additional rooms that could be used for storage, staff quarters or easily be converted into a second garden flat.
Positioned as it is on a major tourist route, this property is perfect for use as a B&B, gallery or other business. On the terraced banks below the lawns, there is useful space for small-scale propagation and this area is currently being used as a rose nursery.

Nestled in the Valley of a Thousand Hills, Hillcrest has a slightly cooler and less humid climate than other parts of Durban. It’s a family-friendly suburb, with many private schools, parks and kid-friendly restaurants. Estate living is very common, with many estates boasting well-kept golf courses. Built amongst rolling hills, houses have magnificent views of the valley and lush, surrounding hills. Just 30 minutes from Durban city centre, Hillcrest is away from the hustle and bustle. The area has a great sense of community, and a mix of country and cosmopolitan lifestyles.Find out more about Hillcrest
