Stellenbosch is a university town in South Africa's Western Cape province. It's surrounded by the vineyards of the Cape Winelands and the mountainous nature reserves of Jonkershoek and Simonsberg. The town's oak-shaded streets are lined with cafes, boutiques and art galleries. Cape Dutch architecture gives a sense of South Africa's Dutch colonial history, as do the Village Museum's period houses and gardens.
With a unique history dating back to 1781, this treasured family home with its spectacular high ceilings, large sash windows, and genuine Oregon pine floors and finishes, mesmerises with its old-world charm. Special features include original antique glass windows, shutters, French doors, large rooms, and pleasant proportions. A Scandinavian closed combustion woodburning stove has the capacity to heat the entire living area in winter. In summer, the thick walls and shutters keep the house lovely and cool.
In the main house there are three bedrooms, of which the main bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom and the other two bedrooms share a bathroom. A study with beautiful Oregon shelves, could be converted into a fourth bedroom in the main house. Separate from the main house, the en-suite guest bedroom has private access. Adjoining the house, a spacious, versatile studio offers ample storage space and could be utilised as an office to work from home, games room, teen pad or another extra bedroom. Through double doors, the entrance hall leads to an attractive Victorian style quarry tile stoep with garden views towards the sparkling swimming pool. The stoep runs along the full length of the house. A patio under a pomegranate tree and another under an avocado tree, are the perfect corners to relax and enjoy the tranquil garden.
Twice a week 'leiwater' is available for irrigation. A carport with sliding gate provides secure off-street parking, which is a scarce commodity in this area.
