A Stately Villa

A very rare opportunity presents itself to acquire this prestigious Oranjezicht home that has come onto the market for only the third time in its 93 year history. Built in the classical style of Sir Herbert Baker, this magnificent home was originally commissioned in 1925 by the Policansky family, pioneers in the tobacco industry with their well-known Cavalla brand. Countess Bartenstein from Germany became the proud owner during WWII and played host to royalty and many visiting dignitaries such as the Greek Royal Family and General Jan Smuts and also housed the German Consulate. After the current owners took ownership in 1982, they spent nearly two years with restoration work overseen by renowned Cape Town architect Paul Righini and again in 2002. Two covered, direct access double garages and a large level driveway with parking for six to eight cars was added as well as a wheelchair-friendly ramp along the garden, a sheltered pool and an elevated terrace with unsurpassed views. The Italianate arches and columns paired with the elevated position of this villa give it an imposing yet homely feel. Sweeping stairs lead up to the beautiful arched front door with detailed glazing. On entering through the vestibule and column flanked archway into the exquisitely panelled foyer with solid Burmese teak floors, five arched doorways lead to significant areas of the house. The formal dining room with its period fireplace, panelled walls and beautiful teak sliding doors lead to the large, light-filled drawing room which opens up to the glorious terrace with spectacular 360 views of Table Mountain, Lions Head, Devils Peak, the city below across Table Bay and beyond. The large kitchens sunny breakfast room leads to the secluded braai area overlooking the pool. A separate pool/games room and an additional family room lends itself to grand scale entertaining. This stately villa boasts a master suite of presidential proportions with a balcony and unrivalled views, a walk-in dressing room, his and hers bathrooms and an adjoining private lounge. An ideal home for the extended family with six en-suite bedrooms and numerous other rooms, all of them en-suite, plus an adjoining guest cottage with two en-suite bedrooms, makes this a home of distinction as a magnificent Private Villa, or a luxury Guest House for a hotelier who would like to make his mark against the slopes of Table Mountain. Excellent security, fully integrated intercom and irrigation systems complete the picture.
