Set within the secure parameters of the Wedgewood Golf and Country Estate just outside the "Friendly City", the property comprises 2 stands. On one stand is the house - the other is level, lawned and big enough for the kids and dogs to play all day.
The paved driveway culminates at a double garage on remote and a porticoed entrance surrounded by manicured gardens and offset by a magnificent water feature. Double doors lead into a vast open-plan living area with stacker doors throughout and a trendy monochrome colour scheme. At its heart is a large state-of-the-art white kitchen with Caesarstone counter tops, central island with glass hob, double oven and plenty of room for a table and chairs. A separate scullery/laundry, with space for all the appliances, keeps things neat and practical.
Large format porcelain tiles create a seamless flow between the living areas which include 2 lounges, 2 dining rooms and a fitted bar, all boasting luxe chandeliers, trendy light fittings and remote controlled blinds. There is also a guest toilet on this level. Leading directly off the indoor living areas is a wooden deck with a modern swimming pool and plenty of lighting to create a fairy-tale setting at night. This part of the property is fully walled to ensure maximum privacy. A contemporary-style stainless steel and light wood staircase takes you to the upper level.
Aside from 3 huge sunny bedrooms, all with full ultra-modern bathrooms en-suite, there is a pyjama lounge and 4 separate work stations so everyone has a place to call their own. The bedrooms boast American shutters, high vaulted ceilings, aircons and fireplaces and the main bedroom opens out on to a balcony with endless views over the golf course, trees and lakes.
