You don’t have to be Alice, peering through the looking glass to realize that what lies ahead when you enter through the gates of this north facing, three-storey home - is something magnificent to behold.
“Open Sesame” springs to mind when the front door swings open to reveal a view straight through to the entertainment area outside. Before we venture outside, let’s take a peak to see what lies on the ground floor. The master bedroom has you taking in air as you experience not only the spaciousness but the incredible amount of natural light filtering through the large windows on either side. Sliding doors on the one side takes you out to the front garden whilst a step up into the open plan dressing room which is home to his and hers basins and built in cupboards, takes you out through another set of sliding doors directly out to the pool and entertainment area. Truly a bedroom to enhance serenity and peace of mind. A full, trendy, designer bathroom (with step up to bath) awaits just before you enter the master bedroom and adjacent to this is a guest bedroom/dressing room, which also has sliding doors leading out to the garden.
Let us take a walk up the spiral staircase with a beautiful glass chandelier that is fit for a mansion, to reveal what lies in store on the middle level.
Step aside Nigela Lawson….this designer open plan kitchen / lounge / dining room sets the scene for all out family living and entertaining. The massive kitchen island provides ample room for prep space and serving, a 5 place gas burner and space for 4 kitchen / bar stools where the family may sit and watch you flaunt your culinary skills. Behind this, two eye level ovens surrounded by a bank of pull out drawers. On one side, space for a double door refrigerator and built in microwave with again loads of storage and prep counter. Just around the corner, a galley style scullery with further storage and another space for a single fridge. Under counter plumbing point for dishwasher and a door leading out to a long balcony completes this scene.
The lounge, with wood paneling feature wall, wood burning fireplace and storage space for your cut wood, sets the scene for those cosy winter nights. You can just imagine sitting comfortably, staring at the fire whilst sipping on a good Cognac, enjoying the tempting aroma’s emanating from the chef at work in the kitchen. Loads of room for a large dining room table and surrounded by large windows (which will be great to open in the middle of summer) all goes hand in hand to ensure that this is indeed, the heart of the home.
On the same floor, you will find a further three, well-appointed bedrooms, one with en-suite and one with a ladder leading up to an additional sleeping space/bed above the cupboards for those kids sleep overs . All rooms have extensive windows permitting that all important natural light to stream through and offer wonderful views. Another full bathroom completes the middle floor.
Once again, up a small flight of stairs, just as you pass the feature wall complete with soft lighting to enhance the ambiance, we head to the top level. This floor is divided into two rooms which are surrounded by windows, providing magnificent views. One room is currently used as a home office and has sliding doors leading out to a large patio offering 360 degree views. The other room is used as a pajama lounge / play room and has sea and mountain views, however is also suited as an entertainment area with the built in 4 burner gas barbeque, ensuring that the views can be enjoyed by all guests and the chef him/herself.
Finally we go back downstairs to indulge in the outside entertainment area. A large covered patio opens up onto the garden with heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi and outside braai. Wild birdlife is encouraged by the beautiful stinkwood trees, two avocado trees, cycads, ferns and a mulberry tree which surround this idyllic garden that also supports a small greenhouse. This outside area is completely private and speaks volumes in peace and serenity.
5 garages including a workshop, electric fencing, double glazed windows, beams and a borehole along with a domestic room with en-suite bathroom and separate entrance, complete the offerings.
