A versatile property on an elevated plot with magnificent views of the hills and mountains. This unique smallholding offers country living at its best and is ideally situated, not too far from the Wilderness Village and the beach. It has a variety of accommodation to suit the larger family plus extended family or visitors.
THE MAIN DWELLING is entered via the portico through double solid wood front doors. It is a double storey building offering open plan/double volume living areas, pitched ceilings and a huge hearth for chilly winter evenings. The downstairs and upstairs sections could easily be adapted to furnish separate living spaces, should this be required. The tiled reception areas lead out to an enormous, north facing patio which overlooks the garden and the spectacular setting. The built in pub with overhead down-lights, positioned near the lounge, is very ambient of an evening and makes for easy entertaining. A cooking/heating alcove and wire mesh cupboard doors create a farmhouse feel in the kitchen area. The space for an upright fridge and freezer was well thought out. Granite tops, prep bowl and the gas hob add to the luxury. A glass serving hatch to the large undercover braai area is most practical. This undercover area extends to a massive open patio. The scullery is separate, it has a stainless steel double sink - water supply heated by an efficient gas geyser and has a dishwasher point. Pets can come and go as they please from this room through the hatch in the back door. The laundry, which is also separate, has a stainless steel trough and can accommodate two appliances. Both of these rooms are a comfortable size. The big pantry is an absolute pleasure. Solid wood double doors separate the living areas from the passage and bedroom section. These doors add character and enhance the room. The four bedrooms are spacious and all have en suite bathrooms. The three downstairs bedrooms all have doors leading to the exterior. The lavish master bedroom has gleaming, laminated wooden floors whilst the other bedrooms are all carpeted. The master suite also boasts swing doors to a walk in cupboard and a very handy, walk in safe. The en suite bathroom features his and her basins set in granite, a shaped bath, a clear glass shower with a pivot door and a separate toilet. The upstairs bedroom is to waltz in! Some of the bedrooms have ceiling fans to assist in extreme heat. Both levels have a roomy guest toilet. The staircase is wide and not steep therefore untiring. The super large TV/family room has a study nook, bookshelves and a ceiling fan. Beyond double solid wood doors, the massive office has double sliding doors on to the north facing balcony which offers exquisite rural views. Perfect for a work from home set-up. The garaging has manual doors and could house four cars, (depending on the car sizes), or three large cars with workshop or trailer space. It has direct access into the house. There is a courtyard with wash line, an ideal place to keep the 2 x 48 kg gas bottles.
THE SECOND DWELLING is situated a fair distance from the main dwelling and is near to the stables. It is a large bedsitter, consisting of an extremely big room, which is a lounge/dining area and bedroom with built in cupboards all in one. This is open to the well fitted kitchen with double stainless steel sink and fitted cooking hob. There is a fitted ceiling fan for those hot summer days. There is a separate bathroom with efficient gas geyser. The entrance to the bedsitter is through the adjoining spacious sunroom. The entire building is light and airy and offers a very scenic outlook, with a braai facility.
THE FLAT is situated around the corner from the second dwelling and next to the stables. It is a fair size room with a bathroom. It has its own gas geyser and a trough. It is well positioned to be groom's accommodation.
THE STABLES are above average in size (approximately 4m X 4m) and there are three of them. There are two enclosed 'tack up' areas in front of the stables. There is also a 'wash bay'. There is also an extra outdoor wooden stable for hot weather conditions.
THE PADDOCKS area, with proper shelter, is an added bonus. The feed room is another handy place. The generator room houses the powerful Diesel RY125 generator. The hay room is also big and is next to the stables. The 'lean to' nearby was designed for storage but can easily be converted to a carport if required.
THE 60 m x 30 m SAND ARENA is formal and structured to proper specifications, believed to be the only one in the area. It is top quality and perfectly suitable for competing horses and the dedicated rider. The first section of the arena is under spotlights to accommodate those who wish to ride at dusk or dawn.
Other features include: Solar heating on both buildings. One electricity prepaid meter (situated in the generator room). Various water tanks. Underground reservoir with filter and pump. Large established, raised vegetable patch under net. Septic tank type sewerage system. Various DSTV points. Various Internet points/ADSL/Wifi areas. Grey water system. Full municipal services. Balcony 4.5m, Patio/Walkway 70.5m.
