Magnificent Georgian Manor
An architectural masterpiece in a small exclusive gated estate in Westville cleverly designed to connect two sections by means of a covered walkway. No expense has been spared in creating this beautiful home, impeccable taste reflected in every detail. A home only the privileged few can enjoy.
On entering through the attractive Mediterranean style courtyard, and through the impressive front door one steps via the double volume hallway into a world of timeless elegance and understated opulence where the grace and elegance of yesteryear meets the open-plan living style of today. An expansive open living area, bathed in light has seamless flow to the large covered patio where one can enjoy the peace and serenity of the surroundings, the beautiful rose garden seeming to become part of the house. Leading from the formal lounge is a study and TV lounge which also opens to the patio. Off the dining room is another study also opening to the patio, and linking it to the sunroom.
The dining room opens to a magnificent sunroom with seamless glass stack doors opening to the secluded pool area, making it part of the house, perfect for outdoor and informal entertaining. Stairs lead down to the lawns where children can safely play, and to the floodlit tennis court, all part of the common property.
A spacious guest suite, which also opens via glass doors to the pool, can be separated from the main house to form a flatlet for the extended family as it also has its own entrance to the courtyard. This area is presently used to run an interior decorating business for which special rights have been granted.
The light, bright and beautifully appointed granite and white wood open-plan kitchen has a picture window overlooking the attractive Mediterranean courtyard, a perfect spot for enjoying a cup of tea or a leisurely breakfast. A breakfast bar links the kitchen to the large formal dining room. The L-shaped kitchen allows it to be open to the living area but with the cooking area hidden from guests. There is a gas stove with electric oven and extractor, a double oven and a large pantry with space for extra fridges. There is a large separate scullery/laundry where washing-up can be done safely out of sight. There is plumbing for dishwasher, 2 washing machines and 2 tumble dryers.
An elegant staircase from the hallway, with beautiful guest toilet tucked away, takes one via a gallery/library to the upper storey where the beautiful original parquet floors have been preserved. The connecting door to the walkway from the separate flat enters the gallery. There are four bedrooms, all carpeted, one of which could be used as a lounge or study having a connecting door to the main suite. The expansive main bedroom is impressive with a private lounge area opening to the balcony which runs the length of the upper storey where one can enjoy a morning coffee while enjoying the tranquil view over the gardens, or a sunbathe in private. The extra-large ensuite bathroom is luxurious and elegantly fitted. The larger of the other bedrooms has access to the other end of the balcony. The 3rd and 4th bedrooms each have full en-suite bathrooms.
The extra- large double garage has a covered direct access to the front door. There is a well appointed flatlet for domestic staff, currently being used as an office for the business. As it opens into the Mediterranean courtyard it could be utilised as a flat for part of the extended family. There is a partially covered outside laundry area, tucked away out of sight.
The 148 sq m. wheelchair friendly flat has the same luxury finishes as the main house. It has a large open plan living area with kitchenette, 2 spacious bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom with shower. The living area opens to a balcony running the length of the building with views over the estate. The ramp from the parking area accesses the flat via this balcony. There is a passage which can be closed connecting to the main house, entering the library through double doors which could be locked should tenants be occupying the flat.
This versatile, exquisite property can be used as a family home for the extended family, or a home from which to run a business, or to create income from letting various sections. It is well situated in Westville, close to schools, shops, churches and Mosque, with easy access to M13 from which upper Highway or Durban can be reached in minutes. It could suit a doctor, having quick access to most hospitals. This location is sought after because it is zoned central schools and is in a guarded neighbourhood. The security is excellent being in a secured gated complex with electric fence as well as having its own security in the form of beams and burglar alarm as well as shutter blinds on various windows.
The Estate is well run with beautiful gardens, a tennis court and a borehole, available to all. There are expansive lawns for children to play in a safe environment. This magnificent home is a sanctuary, unsurpassed in elegance and versatility that will be a lifetime investment.
