The expansive estate, which is currently subdivided into two erven with another approved subdivision in the course of completion, comprises an imposing double-storey main house and distinctly themed guesthouse cottages, as well as manicured lawns and gardens that delight at every turn.

The main entrance is monogrammed with river pebbles, setting the tone for a magnificent home with sweeping views, expansive grounds, additional luxury accommodation and inviting living spaces ideal for entertaining. There is teak flooring throughout.

Leading from the front foyer is an impressive study/library linked to a television or entertainment lounge with an open fireplace and bar area. The adjoining formal lounge boasts ornate cornice details and charming fabric-lined walls. A formal dining room precedes the relaxed eat-in kitchen with its Caesarstone quartz countertops and a centre island. There are 3 ovens, a bespoke gas stove, a walk-in fridge and separate laundry.

The property has staff quarters that include en suite bathrooms. These versatile suites can also be used as guest accommodation. Mintaka also boasts 3 distinctly-themed guest lodges.

The Loft Room also has oak floors and an open truss ceiling. The 2 balconies add to the airy, open feel of this space.

A double-volume staircase, punctuated by the sisal-carpeted landing, takes one to the elegant main bedroom with its his-and-hers bathrooms, separate walk-in wardrobes/dressing rooms and working fireplace.
