Hidden from the road, one drives down the meandering brick paved driveway to the homes grand façade with real curb appeal. Through its architecturally symmetrical doorway, an inviting non-pretentious stable door leads to the double volume entrance hall from which is the formal living room and dining room, both with beautiful fireplaces, and an array of French doors which lead out onto the veranda and manicured lawn. Down the hall is the country style kitchen, with beautiful open beam vaulted ceilings, breakfast island, gas range and open plan informal kitchen dining room, ideal for family living. This room if flooded with light, and overlooks a formal herb garden. The kitchen also benefits from a large walk in fridge, two utility rooms and a pantry, as well as a study.
The second pool lounge and dining room opens up seamlessly through sliding doors, which cleverly disappear into the walls, making the room feel more like an undercover veranda perfect for enjoying warm summer days entertaining next to the adjacent swimming pool. This well-proportioned room has wonderful vaulted ceilings, both a gas braai and wood burning braai and the most magnificent views of Helderberg Mountain.
In the west wing one finds a light and bright executive study, climate controlled wine cellar, and guest bedroom with private veranda and en suite bathroom with both a shower and bath.
Heading up the Cinderella staircase one finds the main accommodation of the house. The east wing has two bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms with bath and shower, which lead onto a generous shared balcony. At the heart of the accommodation is a family lounge with fireplace and Juliet balcony, and the west wing of the house encompasses the opulent main bedroom with large dressing room and en suite bathroom with bath and shower. A fourth bedroom completes the level with en suite bathroom, with bath and shower.
The main house is completed by staff accommodation with living room, kitchenette, bedroom and en suite bathroom, and two double garages with direct access to the house.
Across the level lawn is the guest cottage, currently used as the ultimate man pad. The spacious open plan living room, dining room and kitchen is blanketed by a wall of floor to ceiling glass sliding doors which gives a great indoor to outdoor flow as well as a great deal of natural light. This room has a fireplace, which doubles as a wood burning braai, and direct access to the extra-large double garage which doubles as small gym. The spacious bedroom has an adjacent bathroom with both a bath and shower. The cottage has its own second entrance from the road, giving it independence from the main house.
The gardens are beautifully landscaped with a formal rose garden, level lawns, established shrubs and trees, and for the more sporting there is a tennis court. The gardens are under full irrigation which is fed from the Redwood pipeline scheme which gives the property mountain water. This is primarily used to fill the reservoir, with support from the private borehole if necessary.
The property has fibre optic internet, with one of the fastest connections in the area at up to 100mb/s. There is also an integrated security system with electric fencing, armed response and 12 security cameras which can be monitored off site by a security company or by your smart device.
