Where in the world can you have a 5-acre equestrian property with superb sea views in a security estate with exclusive mountain trails, bridle paths and complete privacy, all within 30 minutes of the city centre of Cape Town?
This classic Cape Dutch thatched home has three en-suite bedrooms (two upstairs and one downstairs) plus a study wing that is plumbed and can therefore easily be converted into a separate guest bedroom wing.
A delightful country-style kitchen with a separate scullery is located at the heart of this farmhouse.
Downstairs is a comfortable lounge (with a built-in, glass-fronted marine aquarium) facing the garden, which leads to a covered veranda overlooking the stables and across the ponds towards Noordhoek beach and Kommetjie lighthouse.
The main house has rolling lawns down to a thatched Lapa entertainment and pool house with an outside braai and seating area.
This home offers outstanding barn-style stabling for five horses, including a tack room, grooms' kitchen and toilet, plus extra cellar space for storage and feed.
There is a lunging ring next to the stables, outside shelters for two more horses, and 11 sand paddocks, which can be enlarged and grassed, including two formal grass paddocks above the dam.
A separate dual-living cottage, with its own entrance and driveway, overlooks the dam with spectacular views of Noordhoek beach and comprises a main en-suite with an outside shower, comfortable kitchen, scullery, and full guest bathroom, plus a mezzanine 2nd bedroom upstairs.
This tree-lined property has been extensively landscaped to incorporate a small top-pond and waterfall feeding a larger dam below.
The grounds are unbelievably beautiful with magnificent mountain views.
Added extras include resident ducks, a chicken coup, Tilapia in the dam, an established koi pond at the front entrance, a sheltered kitchen garden plus a greenhouse tunnel allowing you to realize the dream rural existence.
This is paradise.
