6 Bedroom House in Brackenridge
This magnificent two-year-old home is nestled into the hillside of this exclusive estate with expansive ocean views from Robberg to the Tsitsikamma mountains. The outstanding feature of this property is the privacy and seclusion of the north-facing living area and garden. In the heart of the estate, the garden is surrounded by green belt and no other houses can be seen from the al fresco and outdoor swimming pool area. It is truly an oasis of tranquillity. Off the al fresco, a boma with a Mexican firepot is designed for maximum wind protection and enjoyment of Pletts mild weather conditions.
The design and flow of the open plan kitchen, dining, living area leading to the sun room/bar and alfresco is exceptional. This residence is designed for effortless entertaining whilst also providing cosy living spaces with two woodburner fires and plenty of underfloor heating. Open truss ceilings and a feature slylight create a wonderful feeling of space and light. From the kitchen get inspired by the view over the sea and mountains whilst preparing those delicious meals at the centre island with prep sink. The under cupboard lighting is highly effective.
The banked garden is well established with indigenous plants, is low maintenance and has a real country feel. The stand is a large 1,900 sqm and the garden runs seamlessly into the fynbos surrounds. On the sea side of the house, a partially enclosed verandah commands stunning views over the ocean. A large study doubles as a TV nook for quiet evenings in a deux.
The main level has 3 en suite bedrooms all with showers and two with baths. The main suite has shower, bath, double vanities and a spacious dressing room. Lie in bed and watch the sun rise over the mountains or, on the north side, enjoy viewing the prodigious birdlife.
Downstairs comprises the separate guest accommodation with three further bedrooms and two bathrooms. These have separate access and the two-bedroom unit has a small kitchenette ideal for discrete accommodation for visitors.
No expense has been spared with a four-station audio system, heated towel rails in all bathrooms, quality kitchen units, wifi boosters, and five TV points. There is also a generator, a ring main, a heat pump which provides most of the hot water requirement, an automated sprinkler system, a huge store room and an outside shower.
This 128ha nature reserve has 280 private residential sites, with an average size of 1500m, ensuring plenty of space for natural vegetation. The sought after, upmarket estate, with a wonderful sense of community spirit, has magnificent ocean and mountain views, various trails, an abundance of fynbos and is home to a wide variety of indigenous birds and small animals. State of the art security includes strict access control measures, security patrols and highly sophisticated electrified perimeter fencing. Brackenridge has its own water supply, supported by a first class water filtering and processing system, which offers residents access to pure, natural water in times of drought.
