Greeff Christie's are proud to present this iconic Hermanus residence, the former home to renowned author Jan Rabie and artist Marjorie Wallace.

The current owner has managed to retain the integrity of the original house as far as possible, whilst creating a comfortable home for the family. Wooden flooring and Kiaat cabinetry bring texture and warmth to this beach cottage steeped in history.

This charming residence has four bedrooms, two on the ground floor, of which one is being used as a family room, and another two bedrooms upstairs, enjoying breathtaking ocean and mountain views. Indoor living areas, with wood burning fireplace, provide comfortable spaces for entertaining and relaxing during the cooler months, whilst the spacious verandas, front and rear of the home and the garden braai area offer fabulous outdoor options during the warmer months.

Set in the tranquil green garden, amongst the olive trees, is a self-contained cottage perfect for guests or a fabulous art gallery/studio.

The picturesque suburb of Vermont, which borders Onrus, has been developed with twenty percent of its area dedicated to retaining the original coastal fynbos, which forms natural green corridors between the homes, up the mountain and down to the Ocean. These green passages not only protect fynbos, they are also home to antelope, caracal and porcupine.

The coastal town of Hermanus lies nestled between the green mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. Hermanus is a popular tourist destination, famous for whale watching, over 50 wineries and its outdoor lifestyle.
