Pearl Valley at Val de Vie lies in the beautiful Berg River Valley between Paarl and Franschhoek, with fabulous views of the Simonsberg and Drakenstein Mountains. With Stellenbosch and Cape Town a short distance away, it is ideally located for business, residence and leisure. The estate boasts the Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, 42km mountain bike routes, 21km jogging and walking trails, picnic spots next to the Berg River, stables, parks and paddocks. With top schools nearby, it is a safe and secure environment for residents of all ages.
A stunning open plan, double volume sitting room with wood combustion fire and floating staircase, with lighting that reveals its magic in the evening, sets the tone for this impressive house. Built-in shelving and work station at the garden end of the sitting room makes for a perfect library and reading area, and is currently home to the grand piano.
The state of the art kitchen has beautiful Caesar stone tops, a centre island with a breakfast bar and table. Every detail has been considered for clean lines and immaculate décor. A spacious scullery has ample storage and looks onto an attractive sandstone wall concealing the laundry courtyard behind. The dining area is open plan to the kitchen with a wine cellar as its backdrop. This is an art piece in itself - glass enclosed with its own air conditioning system, wine fridge and specially lit aluminium display shelves with storage for +/- 300 bottles. The indoor braai room opens up to the wooden deck and water facing garden on two sides with large sliding doors. It has its own wood store to the rear with direct access to outside for easy deliveries and to ensure dry wood at all times.
The upstairs main bedroom suite has been personally designed with walk through closets, open plan bathroom with underfloor heating, a separate shower and toilet. Sliding doors open to the balcony which overlooks the garden, and enjoys stunning views over the golf course towards the Simonsberg mountains. Two beautiful ground floor en-suite bedrooms make up the west wing of the house. Again, they are pristine in their design and both look onto garden, with a pretty undercover patio between them.
There is a generous garage for 3 cars, complete with car wash facilities and a work space. Above is a large loft with a textured rubber coated floor, the ideal place for a studio or gym.
Additional features include fully automated air conditioning, centralised music system, central vacuum system, solar heating and battery power inverters.
