Once part of an historical estate, this classic country style property on 2525 sqm with a mountain stream running through it, in the heart of Higgovale is now available for your consideration. As you enter through the imposing wrought iron gates which were installed by its previous German aristocratic owners, you are greeted by a winding driveway, leading through the wooded parkland up to the Villa with its unique copper turreted pavilion from where you can enjoy sweeping views across the city towards the mountains beyond.

Few gardens can match the sheer grandeur of this unique setting within the city. Comprising of two erven this is one of the largest plots to be found within the City Bowl. Reminiscent of the wooded parklands typically found surrounding the classic English Country House Estates.

As you enter from the wisteria clad pergola past the koi pond with its ornate fountain you are welcomed into the foyer with the family/TV room on the left and the main living room with its bay window to the right letting in an abundance of natural light.

The large lounge/dining room and kitchen are centred around a wood-burning fireplace. The lounge leads onto a walkway opening to the pavilion and an expansive veranda and ultimate entertaining space with fabulous views across the vast garden, the city, Table Mountain and the bay.

The farm-style, eat-in kitchen is the heart of the home with its state-of-the-art, freestanding Rosieres double stove perfect for the chef in the family. It also features a butchers block, a walk-in butlers pantry, plenty of built-in cupboards and a mudroom. There is also a traditional pizza-oven for your added enjoyment.

At the top of the double-volume, wooden staircase you will find the five bedrooms, three of which are en-suite. This level features a mix of both wooden floors and parquet flooring, giving it an old-world charm and the iconic chandelier adds to the ambience.

The master suite with its fold back doors open up onto the private terrace with outstanding views. The en-suite bathroom boasts a glamourous, freestanding bath, a shower and a heated towel rack as well as a double vanity.

The bedroom adjacent to the main suite can be used as a nursery, boudoir or even as a home office. It features a handmade, iron-clad Juliet balcony that overlooks the reception garden with its olive tree and centrepiece fountain. The other three bedrooms and bathrooms lend itself well to extensive family living on one level.

On the lower level of this house, you will find a home office with a sauna and wine cellar as well as a 6th suite with its own kitchenette lending itself to being a self-contained flatlet. In addition to this, the property offers a separate and generous one bedroom cottage with private access ideal as staff or student accommodation.

This one of a kind property is an entertainers delight. Set on the slopes of Table Mountain in a prime location, you have easy access to the Kloof Street hub of trendy restaurants, exclusive boutiques and vibrant bars. The V&A Waterfront is a mere 8-minute drive away, while the MyCiti bus stop is just around the corner. You are also a short drive away from the famous Atlantic Seaboard beaches and popular hiking trails.
