Impeccably presented, this North West facing residence epitomises luxury beachside living, with far reaching views of the turquoise Ocean. Walking up to the front door through a manicured garden, a lovely water feature and Koi pond greets you first. Entering through a glass enclosed patio, that is a room in itself, the glass front door opens into a welcoming foyer. To the left of the foyer, the well-planned study has loads of built-in cupboards and shelves, and provide a practical space for storage and books. To the right, the sun-filled living space incorporates the dining room, large lounge, and open-plan kitchen. The heart of the home is the well-equipped gourmet kitchen, big enough to cater for large gatherings of friends and family. The kitchen has a generous breakfast bar, ample cupboards, modern finishes, a built-in stove & stainless steel extractor fan. The fully plumbed scullery and laundry area is out of eye sight, and adjacent to the kitchen. It has space for several electrical appliances. A large serving hatch opens from the kitchen to the well-proportioned and sunny dining room. There is a mini-library / reading corner between the dining room and lounge. A wall of bookshelves creates a welcoming, lived-in feel. The lounge area is generous in proportion, and the staircase forms a backdrop to it. The braai room and alfresco entertainment area, just off the lounge, has large stacking doors that open directly onto a patio. The patio is covered by a roof, and is built in such a way that it is well sheltered from the summer breezes. The master bedroom has a lovely en suite bathroom with a fantastic corner bath as well as a shower. Large sliding doors and windows provide spectacular views.... A second spacious bedroom, kitchenette and full bathroom downstairs, can also be used as a separate self-catering unit, with its own external door. The upstairs level homes a large, welcoming living space and kitchenette, with its gorgeous exposed thatch ceiling and carpeted floors. This room walks out onto a long, wide balcony with a built-in braai. To the right, is a large bedroom, with direct access to the patio through a sliding door. It has an en suite bathroom with shower. To the left, is another generous bedroom that opens to the patio, and has its own en suite bathroom. A second study, or 5th bedroom, completes the top level. The established garden is irrigated and landscaped. Unfortunately the drought has had some affect on the previously lush garden. A footpath through a greenbelt of natural Fynbos between the house and the beach, gives you easy access to endless walks on the long, white sandy Dwarskersbos beach. Tandem garages offer enough space for several vehicles, a boat, motorbike and even a motorhome. Above the garages, is a large storeroom. The house has an alarm system, burglar bars on the opening windows, a solar geyser, heated towel rails as well as air conditioners. The thatch roof is fitted with safety irrigation. From the large patios to the sunny living areas, there's no shortage of beautiful spaces and breath taking ocean views. This magnificent home is perfect for the extended family, and lends itself well to entertaining. Enjoy the Mediterranean weather and spectacular sunsets over the turquoise ocean, cocktail in hand. On a clear day, you can see all the way across the bay towards St Helena Bay. The layout of this unique beachfront home, with its striking thatched roof, offers the potential to transform it into a guest house, or rent out the self-contained unit. Viewing by prior arrangement essential.
