Be transported back in time to the 1930s in this tastefully decorated Art Deco home with all of the original detailing lovingly preserved.
The architect has thought out every single detail from the oak parquet flooring to the hidden cupboard features for wine and glasses as well as wall detailing to match the detail of the glass doors and windows. There are three working fireplaces throughout the home.
Enter through the magnificent entrance hall which has a sweeping curved timber stairway polished by the many feet who have entered it over the last nine decades.
Each of the reception areas is interlinked and flow seamlessly from one to the other. Although the home is large it flows beautifully.
The Kitchen/breakfast room has the original imported solid timber cupboards throughout with a surprise detail on the inside of one of the cupboard doors.
There is a sunroom off the formal dining room for those after-dinner drinks as well as a one-off in the main bedroom for your morning coffee. The dining room has hidden cupboards for all your glasses. There is a wine cupboard with shelving expertly tipped to conserve the wine. The conservatory leads out to the garden from the entrance hall and creates light throughout the ground floor.
Each bedroom is spacious and well thought out. The extensive bathrooms have been modernised without losing their character.
The self-contained flatlet behind the property has its own entrance and terrace garden to entertain guests.
This property affords views across the Sandvlei (Lake) upwards towards the Muizenberg Mountains and beyond. It is within a five-minute walk to the ocean and Surfers Corner where one is spoilt for choice with the finest coffee shops and restaurants.
This property has to be seen as the photos cannot do it justice.
