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.
This is a remarkable home with everything you could want for comfortable and luxurious living. North facing and on the 17th Fairway of the Pearl Valley Jack Nicklaus golf course, it is screened with beautiful mature trees for total privacy and a natural setting. Stepping stones over a Koi fish pond heralds something special and the double volume entrance hall with fairylights above, add to the enchantment. The house wraps itself around the stunning salt swimming pool with its wooden deck surround looking out towards the fairway.
The pristine Caesar stone kitchen is complete with a centre island and breakfast bar, and has integrated Gagenau appliances. It sits at the heart of the house with a double volume dining area and sliding doors opening onto the pool. A beautiful guest cloakroom with separate toilet and vanity is tucked away to the side. The scullery to the rear has a spacious laundry courtyard and access to the generous golf cart garage.
There is lots of living space in both wings of the house for entertaining and relaxing. A formal sitting room with a feature glass wine cellar leads to a fabulous indoor braai room which opens fully to the garden and pool and flows down to a large fire pit and seating area. The cellar has built in shelving for up to 90 bottles and storage space for many more. The braai room has a gas and wood braai, as well as a gas geyser for the sink. On the East side of the house there is an informal TV room, again opening fully to the pool. The Sun room can open onto the garden in the summer or be closed up, with the wood fire lit, for cosy winter days. The garden is wonderful with hydrangea beds down one side and fynbos down the other. Artificial grass provides a green and vibrant garden all year round.
A stunning feature wooden and glass staircase takes you up to the first floor with gorgeous wooden flooring throughout the spacious 4 bedrooms and the landing. The main bedroom has added surprises such as the twinkling fairy lights above the bath. Both north facing bedrooms have automatic shade blinds to the windows and large balconies where one can catch the sun and relax with a good book, while the southern bedrooms have shutters to allow the air to flow through.
