Set at the end of a cul-de-sac, on a rare 1727 sqm of land, this home is truly magnificent. The garden and grounds are a sight to behold. As you enter, you get the feeling of being in a botanical garden with not another home in sight. You are surrounded by an indigenous and beautifully maintained garden that’s watered by a recently established and fully functional borehole. Sitting on the patio, you can watch the eagles and hawks gliding through the sky as they play in the thermals. The mountains are so close by that you feel as though you could reach out and touch them. Private and peaceful, and in excellent condition, this home has an abundance of charm and character. Double-vaulted timber ceilings, quarry floor tiles and a stone-clad fireplace give the distinct feel of a European Alpine chalet. The living and dining areas are open-plan to the kitchen and there is good flow to an undercover patio from which to enjoy those spectacular views. Special features include Rhodesian Teak floors in the lounge. Accommodation on the lower level comprises of an entrance hall, guest toilet, study and double garage with plenty of storage space and direct entry into home. The lounge and dining room, with stack back doors, lead to the patio. The old-fashioned styled kitchen includes a fitted Eurogas oven, hob and extractor fan and a central prep island. The kitchen has a walk-in pantry as well as a large scullery / laundry. There are also two large family bedrooms with plenty of built-in cupboards and a full central family bathroom, complete with a Victorian bath. On the upper level of the home is a private mezzanine sitting room, as well as the large master bedroom with full en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom leads to an undercover balcony from which one has the most exquisite and expansive sea and mountain views, stretching from Kommetjie lighthouse, across Longbeach to Chapmans Peak and Cape Point Vineyards. There is also a flatlet above the double garage comprising of a large bedsitter room with space for kitchenette and large bathroom. This home is really a cut above the rest – it’s a true rarity.
