Enduring classic in Kei Mouth
Built to endure the ravages of the coast, this home offers plenty of accommodation and is just 200 meters from the beach. The massive grounds give you plenty of options for future development. Built in the 1950's this solid home is constructed with cement and shingle bricks which rest on an iron-stone cellar. It boasts 1 year old aluminium windows and beautiful Oregon floors and external doors. The skirting and door frames are also Oregon, although it will take a bit of paint stripping to reveal the natural beauty of the wood. The front door opens to the large reception room. Off of which is the first bedroom with open-plan toilet, shower and basin. The 90 square meter entertainment area sits above the double garage and laundry-cum-domestic room below. Partly covered and fitted with a Jetmaster braai, this elevated, tiled area is the perfect spot for braaiing while watching the rugby or grand prix and relaxing with loved ones after a long, blissful day on the beach. The other side of the reception room takes you between the lounge and dining area. Down the passage you will find two bedrooms large enough to accommodate a small family, the main bathroom, separate toilet and a normal sized bedroom. The back door of the old-world kitchen takes you down a stairway to the rear of the house. A partially walled area shelters the el fresco built in braai where the sounds and smell of the sea filter through the leaves of the wild bananas. Below the house is a low ceiling bedroom reclaimed from the cellar, a single garage and the sixth bedroom which is en suite.
Kei mouth, as the name implies is built along the headland of the Great Kei River. It has shops, restaurants, library, churches, police station, and schools. The Pont or Kei Mouth Ferry will take your vehicle across the river to the wilder side of the Wild Coast.
