Welcome to Chez Evergreen Lane, a boutique estate of just three exclusive double-story homes located in one of the most desirable settings in Cape Town' Southern Suburbs. Classical Georgian-style architecture is reinterpreted for modern living in a design aimed at maximising the connection between built structure and nature. An easy open-plan flow that's flooded with light fuses these homes to their verdant surroundings. Finished to the highest standards, Chez Evergreen Lane offers you the epitome in luxurious contemporary living.
Nestled in the Constantiaberg valley, a mere 15km from the centre of Cape Town, lies Constantia, one of the oldest suburbs in the country. Suburb is a misnomer though because the Constantia lifestyle is anything but suburban. An abundance of green belts, where you'll encounter hikers, runners and cantering horses, are on your doorstep. Some of the best premier wine estates in the country are your neighbours, including the historic Groot Constantia estate dating back to 1685. Constantia does not disappoint when it comes to the dining scene either, with anything from vibey coffee shops, to intimate bistros to 5-star fine dining on offer. It's a pastoral paradise that encourages outdoor country pursuits, yet the beating heart of the Cape Town CBD and Waterfront are mere minutes away. Add one of the best private hospitals and top schools and Constantia ticks all the boxes for a family-friendly, highly livable place where residential properties are a sound investment not just for tomorrow, but for today.
The design aesthetic that underpins the Chez Evergreen Lane boutique estate is a fusion of easy contemporary living with timeless classical style. It's modern and clean with simple lines and a neutral palette, making an Evergreen home a space that easily adapts to your unique interior style.
Oversized windows let the outside in and sensitively integrate these exclusive homes into the landscaped gardens featuring mature established trees, borehole and irrigation. Top-of-the-line security provides peace of mind. The development includes a guard house at the perimeter, an electric fence and cameras linked to an off-site monitoring company. Each home is also equipped with an Ajax alarm system with interior and perimeter beams and two Hikvision indoor stations linked to the perimeter gate station. Additional features such as hydronic underfloor heating, linked to a heat pump and hot water ring main, plus a backup battery unit to reduce loadshedding interruptions are included for each home.
The heart of the home and a keen cook's dream Ergonomically designed to optimise workflow and equipped with top-of-the-line Bosch appliances, this is a kitchen any keen cook will love. But more than that, with its open-plan flow into the rest of the living areas, this is a space that entices people to gather.
Engineered oak flooring imbues the room with an organic warmth. Oak feature cabinets and wine storage continue the theme, while cupboards are classic in white Shaker style, with a large central island in contrasting grey. The elegant design is continued with white composite stone tops, brushed brass handles and a farm-style prep bowl. The hob, oven and extractor are included, with space provided for a large double-door fridge. Off the kitchen you'll find a practical scullery with double sink and Torino mixer. It's wired and plumbed for your dishwasher, washer and dryer.
The upstairs master suite is expansive, with large windows that brighten up the room and connect it to the outdoors. A private balcony with pergola continues the connection to nature. A walk-in master dressing room provides plenty of packing space and there's the option of adding even more with floor-to-ceiling built-in cupboards in the bedroom with large-screen TV and dressing table inserts. The space is fully carpeted, as per your specifications. A natural cooling solution is provided in the form of an elegant wooden paddle fan and there's the optional addition of ducted airconditioning. Off the bedroom you'll find the large en-suite bathroom with soaker tub and generously sized shower. Luxury abounds with white marble-look tops and contrasting dark cabinetry, under-counter double basins, oversize mirrors and elegant wall lights.
The bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms. The restrained, classical design aesthetic of Chez Evergreen Lane continues in the bathrooms, which feature white marble-look tops, contrast-colour cabinets and under-counter basins. Elegant wall sconces and oversized mirrors reflect light and add focal-point drama to the design.
