4 Bedroom House For Sale in Houghton Estate, Johannesburg

4 4 5 Land Size: 3386m² Floor Area: 995m²
Magnificent one of a kind residence on Houghton ridge
Welcome to Houghton Falls, a Fleming -designed heritage home neatly nestled on the gentle slopes of Houghton Ridge and built in the 1900’s by the Oppenheimer family as the coachman’s house. Constructed completely in stone, masoned by Italian POW, the home has been renovated to become a classic modern home with exceptional finishes.

Located on a leafy and exquisitely landscaped 4000m2 the property is highlighted with cascading water features, fountains, ponds, gazebos, and sundecks. The approach is through stately Chinese palace gates followed by a 130m-long gently uphill winding cobble-paved driveway spanning a stoned-masoned bridge flanked by enchanting duck- and koi- ponds. Passing under Italian-style lamped arches, the final approach to the home leads to a turnaround courtyard with a central fountain, porte-cochere and access to the residences and garages.

The voluminous single-level 4-bedroom north-facing home comprises three residences with the “main residence” comprising two luxurious en-suite bedrooms, a magnificent 18-seater dining room with marble fireplace and an elegant lounge with adjoining TV lounge – all with exceptional finishes. Leading off the elaborate entrance hall are two internet fibre-connected studies as well as a guest toilet for a work-from-home/ consultation rooms scenario. A spacious gourmet kitchen with electric- and gas-cooking options is adjoined by a separate scullery and garage.

Classical finishes include Crema marble flooring with wide barge-board skirting, stately extra-length solid kaya-wood doors with complimenting wooden architraves, sculptured bolection moulds and gold-leafed cornicing. American shutters feature throughout. A combination of split-unit air-conditioning, gas fireplaces and underfloor heating ensure that the house remains comfortable in the winter months and pleasantly cool in the summer. A complete sound & video system with separate controls is available in each room, there is also Wi-Fi throughout.

The “Cottage” comprises a spacious en-suite bedroom, kitchen, and a bright open-plan combined lounge/ dining room which leads onto a private Provençale-styled ‘secret’ garden and double garage.

Above the double garage is an equally spacious open-plan bachelor studio [the “Studio”, currently used for business purposes, with a kitchenette, toilet, American shutters, and quaint flower-boxed Juliette patios. The unit is accessed via yet another charming private garden.

The staff accommodation comprises three separate rooms with a communal kitchen, bathroom, and toilet all leading on to a central covered courtyard.

There are two double-extra length garages as well as a single garage leading directly into the main residence [5 parking spaces all-in-all]

A rock pool with an infinity edge circulates water back to the pool by way of a cascading water feature.

The uber carbon-friendly home is fully off-grid with an extensive state-of-the art solar plant, solar geysers, gas piping and a steady year-round flowing borehole. Sixty-four [64] solar voltaic solar panels with 24 lithium storage and back-up batteries produce sufficient electricity to power the home with 100kW of electricity daily. The 15,000L-a-day water-handling capacity includes three 5,000L JoJo tanks automatically filled by the borehole and pressure pumps, a high-tech filtration system and an extensive sprinkler system throughout the gardens. Solar geysers produce 600L of hot water daily.

The property is fully walled with a single entrance and double electric fencing along the full perimeter. Motion beams and a fully integrated eight-view panel of CCTV cameras monitoring the periphery of the property can be viewed from every room in the house. The alarm system is linked to 24-7 Rapid Response.
