Situated high up on the northern slopes of the ancient Boskruin Koppie, this home is enveloped by the Boskruin Nature Reserve, while being located just 12km west of Sandton with easy access to the N1 freeway, Beyers Naud� Drive, and Witkoppen Road.
No detail was overlooked or expense spared in the building of this unique upmarket, approximately 1 300 m2 home which was developed over four years. The 27 210m2 includes 2 subdivided stands where 2 extra residences can be built.
Designed by TPC Architects, this is an ideal four-bedroom family home for anyone who is looking for sophistication, tranquillity and privacy. The residence boasts hand-crafted iron work and woodwork by craftsmen, top quality fittings, the best in international and local building finishes, and has been designed with enormous windows, ample sliding doors and skylights so that the home can be opened up to become one with nature, letting in an abundance of light and air.
With a second-floor formal lounge offering unparalleled views, formal dining room, a large patio with built-in gas braai, temperature-controlled wine cellar with whiskey bar, acoustically designed media room, traditional South African fire-pit in the rear of the garden, as well as an entertainment complex situated alongside the pool with fitted bar, steam room and Jacuzzi, this home offers a unique lifestyle and is an entertainer's dream.
The crest of the Boskruin Koppie has been left as a private reserve, rich in flora and fauna such as porcupines, dassies (rock hyrax) and different types of birds, including owls and guinea fowl. The crest of the koppie is easily walkable and offers stunning all-round views of the city and some of the finest sunsets in Johannesburg.
Security is outstanding, with twin electric fencing systems and remote controlled armoured steel shuttering. There is, in addition, a strong room for all items requiring safekeeping. Despite the size of the property, it offers a complete 'lock up and go' lifestyle.
The home is designed to operate completely off-grid should this be required, with a powerful generator and a high yield borehole with storage that provides an emergency water supply.
The estate boasts a whole list of additional features which include a chef's kitchen equipped with Siemens and Miele appliances and a large pantry; hand-crafted wood door frames and built in cupboards; a two-bed staff house with kitchen, bathroom and storeroom; four garages and a carport; granite window sills throughout; underfloor heating; designer curtains; hand scalloped roof trusses; imported slate roof; gas reticulation system, central vacuuming system; vegetable garden; and landscaped and rock gardens, to name just a few.
