Ideal opportunity to purchase this uniquely positioned lock-up-and-go style north-facing home on 2 levels, on a cul de sac by the seaside. Protected by its position from the South Easter, the home comprises 4 bedrooms, 3 of which are en-suite, mezzanine office/study, open plan kitchen and dining area with a separate lounge all overlooking the sea and leading out onto undercover decks. There is a small, almost vertical indigenous garden at the back and another small garden in front with a totally wind-free patio/ braai area at the back. Double garage with adjoining TV lounge and additional toilet/shower.
There is easy access to Noordhoek shopping malls, theatres, antique stores, boutiques, pubs, restaurants and cafes in Simons Town Kalk Bay and Muizenberg and is within a 45 minute drive from the Cape Town city centre, the opera, the symphony, the ballet and more theatres, the V&A Waterfront, Hout Bay and the winelands. The immediate neighbourhood has a late-night supermarket, veterinary surgery, hotel, cute cafes, bars and restaurants.
For the fitness/sports enthusiasts this home is 40 meters, along the stream under the subway, from a beautiful white, sandy beach that is very popular with kite surfers, wind surfers, paddle boarders and beginner surfers and there is access to a club tennis court 800 m away, horse-riding and stables 1km away, 4 golf courses within a 10 km radius, a yacht club in Simons Town and, for the casual cyclist, it is a pleasant flat cycle to Simons Town waterfront, Kalk Bay, St James and Muizenberg. The serious cyclist and runner will know that the house is on both the world-famous Cape Argus cycle tour route and the Two Oceans Marathon route. There are squash courts and a bowling green at Simons Town Country Club and this home is great for kayaking, launching from the beach and paddling a kayak or surf ski to Simons Town, Boulders or Kalk Bay and St James for breakfast.
Nature enthusiasts will enjoy the great walks around the wetlands in front of the house (with otters and abundant birdlife) and along the shore to Fishhoek, a very popular beach (protected by shark nets), and the magnificent flora of the fynbos in the surrounding mountains, just across the valley above Glencairn on Elsies Peak or further afield at Silvermine Reserve, Kalk Bay, Steenberg and Red Hill above Simons Town, which are all less than 20minutes away. Together they offer a huge choice of hikes, from gentle to challenging, with breathtaking views of both oceans. There is also great SCUBA diving nearby, in and around Simons and the penguins at Boulders Beach are a paddle away (and along the way you can encounter dolphins, sea birds and, in Winter, whales right in front of the house). Cape Point Reserve with wonderful walks along the magnificent cliffs and among the fauna (Chacma baboons, Eland, Ostriches, Cape Mountain Zebra, Hyraxes and Genet), and flora (Proteas, Ericas, Restios) of the unique Cape Floral Kingdom, is just 15km away along the winding coastal road.
This is a must buy if you are looking to purchase a home offering a good investment with a holiday experience that your kids and your friends and their kids will find just too tempting to resist And there is plenty of space for them all.
