When I sold this home to the current owners, 14 years ago, this home was in the style of a Swiss Alpine Lodge.
The owners lovingly transformed the space to a contemporary style- a blend of old and new which works really well.
The home is built into the hillside on a split level. The ground level offers at least two off-street parking bays and a large garage with space for two cars, a workshop and a separate access office and shower/toilet. The office is great for working from home undisturbed. The space could be converted back to a fourth bedroom for domestic quarters/teenagers pad and there is even potential to turn the garage into a flatlet.
A staircase leads up to the first level and front door.
The open plan lounge, dining, bar and kitchen is really the indoor hub of the home.
The modern kitchen will be the envy of your friends and includes a gas cooker and soft close doors.
The lounge has a feature rock wall behind the closed combustion fireplace which warms the entire space during the winter months.
There is a floor to ceiling sliding window door opening to a generous patio. The window brings the lush vegetation and mountain views inside.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms- the third bedroom is slightly smaller than the other two both of which open to the pool area. The main is en-suite.
The outdoor space will probably be the area that makes you fall in love with the space. Panoramic mountain views, ancient trees and hedges give superb privacy.
The north east side of the house (the sunniest side) includes a patio deck, pizza oven style braai area, play fort and a decent sized pool.
Security is excellent- particularly because of the split level design. A huge added bonus is the roadside camera which is monitored by an off-site armed rapid response team 24 hours a day.
The home is set near the bottom of Suikerbossie Hill making it super convenient for access to Cape Town and Southern Suburbs
In its current format it is a family home- but neutral enough to suit any buyer. At its heart this is a home with excellent flow and tremendous advertising space.
We can't wait to show it to you :)
