Sensuous Private Retreat in the Wilderness Lakes Area, in the Heart of the Garden Route. Magnificent sunsets and sunrises on this spectacular north facing property surrounded by nature.
Enter this gated, approximately 10 hectare (former pine plantation) property by a sweeping 600 metre driveway through your own private forest. The Zen-styled main residence of this prime property overlooks the Langvlei and also has views of Rondevlei and Swartvlei. The double volume dwelling is light and bright and the interior décor is European styling, with minimalist feel, and gleaming, solid Rhodesian Teak flooring. The many high level windows allow sunlight to stream in during the day and enables romantic starlight at night. The open plan kitchen with Caesar Stone tops and wide gas oven plus separate utility room which accommodates four machines, the pantry and linen cupboards, are an absolute treat. The inter-leading reception areas have a practical flow and the central log fireplace ensures heating throughout for those chilly winter evenings. The bar area features a wine cupboard and an all weather indoor braai. The master bedroom and the guest bedroom both have en suite wet room style bathrooms with bidets. A separate guest loo/shower room is centrally situated for convenience. All of the north rooms have stack doors which lead out to the expansive Rhodesian Teak deck featuring a jacuzzi. The four air conditioning units provide cooling in summer and heating in winter. All windows have tinted glass which cuts down 60% of heat and glare but does not compromise the stunning views to the outdoors in any way. The house has ADSL, Wi-Fi, a Satellite dish for DSTV and the sound system is piped. Numerous down-lights set the internal ambience and the driveway lights are on a day/night sensor switch. The property is secured by a burglar alarm system which is linked to Chubbs armed response.
