Gracious family home in one of Sandhurst’s most south-after roads.
Situated in one of Sandhurst’s most prestigious roads lies this totally elegant and charming home perfectly positioned in an enchanting garden. Entering the property down a long driveway, under jasmine covered arches, one’s eye is drawn to the elegant front door of this remarkable home. From the entrance - one sees through to the garden on the other side. Designed in the mid 1990’s by renowned architect Philip Watermeyer, the home has perfectly proportioned living rooms; a formal sitting room, dining room and family room all with windows or doors opening out to the beautiful garden. The family room opens out to a spacious, welcoming verandah which invites one to sit down on the comfy sofas and take in the beauty of the garden and pool. Ideal for get-togethers with family and friends, this space forms the heart of this wonderful family home.
The spacious kitchen comes off the family room and is well-equipped with a separate pantry, scullery and laundry.
Upstairs are three well-sized bedrooms each with their own full bathrooms, ample cupboards and each facing north overlooking the garden. The main bedroom suite is positively sumptuous and comprises a spacious bedroom with windows on three sides taking full advantage of the amazing views and a full bathroom which offers 2 basins, 2 separate loos as well as 2 separate dressing rooms! Part of the main bedroom suite is a separate study with built-in cupboards which could easily be converted in to a fourth bedroom. The main bedroom and second bedroom share a balcony offering privacy and wonderful views of the garden. Situated off the passage upstairs is a spacious linen cupboard while above the passage are skylights which look down over this double volume space.
Downstairs is a gorgeous guest cloakroom and stairs up to the separate cottage positioned above the 3 garages. With a well-sized sitting room, bedroom and full bathroom, it is an ideal space for an older child or extended family, as it offers total privacy. It has also been plumbed for a kitchen. There is under carpet and underfloor heating throughout the home. The wine cellar has been cleverly designed with access from the garage.
