How would you like to live in a farm- like setting, surrounded by nature in all it's beauty, yet within minutes of Somerset West and the Medi Clinic?
Seeing is believing, and this beautiful, sunny, bright and wind-free home has it all !!!
Situated in a cul-de-sac, bordering agriculturally-zoned land, mere metres from the Lourens River this property will be appreciated by those discerning buyers who want something out of the ordinary, who love a natural, peaceful, farm-like setting, but who want to be close to all amenities that Somerset West has to offer.
Imposing and grand, this gabled, Cape Dutch-style house is well-elevated above street-level, and offers magnificent views of big open skies, sunsets, Table Mountain, the Helderberg Mountain and the Helderberg Basin, overlooking farmlands and dams. These in turn attract a large variety of water-loving bird life, and on occasions, one sees otters, mongoose and squirrels. A true bird-lovers' dream where viewing of birds is at eye-level.
The main house offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with showers and underfloor heating, open-plan kitchen and dining area, scullery, pantry, and lounge, 3 wood-burning closed-combustion fireplaces and good quality cupboards throughout. From the lounge, Swartland fold-back doors open up to an East-facing deck and a low-maintenance indigenous garden, revealing mountain views and a feeling of total remoteness!
Two more sets of good-quality Swartland fold-back doors from the kitchen/dining area open up onto a 100 sq metre, Spanish-tiled covered verandah with built-in braai and deck area, perfect for the executive and entertainer's lifestyle.
Antique Oregon sash windows and internal doors, and Mexican handmade and sun-baked floor tiles create a truly farm-style atmosphere.
Outside, on a lower-level, an infinity swimming-pool, Jacuzzi and sun-deck area with outdoor shower, a study, which could alternatively be used as a changing-room, a very large storage area, perfect also as a wine-cellar, and a beautifully-finished, private, income-generating studio apartment.
A BIG advantage that this property boasts is that it is sheltered from the south-easterly winds which start in November and blow through to March. The other, even bigger advantage to this property is that it is North-West facing for maximum sunlight and warmth.
The three-car extra-spacious, tiled garage with automated door is linked to the main house with a staircase, with provision made for a lift.
Bedroom (1) Very spacious double-sized room with an en-suite has beautiful oak floors, lots of cupboard space and double cottage-pane doors leading to back garden with Koi pond and fountain area. The en-suite has an antique toilet and basin and is tiled with Travertine tiles.
Bedroom (2) Spacious double-sized room with beautiful oak floors, and cupboards.
Bedroom (3) A pleasantly comfortable en-suite room with beautiful oak floors, ideal as a guest room or fourth bedroom.
Main bedroom: A magnificently-positioned extra-large room with beautiful parquet flooring, six beautiful sash windows which let the light in from sunrise to sunset, with the most magnificent views, a free-standing Victoria & Albert bath, and high-quality satin-finished vanity and cupboards.
A Victorian-styled family bathroom with slipper bath, shower, and antique toilet and basin is situated between bedrooms (1) and (2).
The kitchen is the true heart of the home, boasting a large fireplace, is airy, well-lit and ventilated with a centre island, gas hob, a Siemens integrated dishwasher, and granite tops. Siemens oven and MicroCombi Oven.
All bathrooms and studio apartment have under-floor heating.
