This home offers a superb lifestyle- located in a quiet suburban close yet still conveniently situated within easy walking distance of popular De Waal Park, Gardens Shopping Centre and St Cyprian's School.
This unique City Bowl residence, offering space and enduring elegance, will become a legacy for the next discerning buyer.
The prominent corner position ensures commanding views over the City Bowl to Table Bay, while the windows and terraces throughout the house, encompass both these and Table Mountain, Lions Head and Signal Hill vistas.
The imposing entrance hall has Burmese teak strip flooring and unique teak-panelled walls, alluding to the quality with which the house was originally built. To the right is the formal lounge and the grand teak-panelled dining-room, which in turn flow to a terrace overlooking the pool. On this level is an additional family room and study en-suite, which could be a guest bedroom. The kitchen, upgraded during the current ownership of the house, contains a pantry, laundry, breakfast room and a butler's pantry.
Leading to the left off the entrance hall, is the ground-floor bedroom wing, comprising four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The original teak staircase leads up to a private main suite of amazing proportions. In addition to the master bedroom, there is a separate lounge and study, his and hers bathrooms and a full dressing-room, all leading onto a balcony with panoramic views. On the landing just prior to reaching the main suite, is the seventh interior bedroom, also en suite, which would make an ideal younger child's room or additional study.
Should the accommodation in this ambassadorial home not quite suffice, on the lower ground level you will discover a family room and pool room (both with their own bathrooms), which lead out to the sheltered swimming pool and large patio area. This is the perfect space for entertaining on a grand scale.
Off the back courtyard is a full two-bedroom (both en suite) cottage, ideal for work-from-home offices or deluxe domestic quarters if required.
The two full double garages (for four cars) and storage area, have access directly into the property. A further remote-controlled sliding gate provides secure off-street parking for six to eight cars where a ramp for easy (or possible paraplegic) access to the house from this parking area, has been fitted.
