Exclusive living amongst the vines on La Grange de Cabriere, Franschhoek.
Set within a boutique estate with only 8 exclusive properties, this newly renovated residence on over 5,000 sqm presents from the outside as a classic Cape Dutch homestead set amongst the vines while the interior architecture surprises you with large open-plan living areas, contemporary double-volume spaces and clean European style.
The setting is unbeatable, within a mature wooded garden framed by soaring oak trees and uninterrupted views towards the Mont Rochelle mountains. The property is also planted with two private vineyard blocks of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producing the equivalent of approximately 500 bottles of wine per year. Ideal for either the aspiring winemaker or a completely hands-off approach under the current outsourced management arrangements.
The home itself has been completely renovated to European standards including continuous terrazzo flooring throughout, imported fixtures and fittings as well as a top of the range UPS electrical back-up system. Probably the most striking feature of this home, are the panoramic views captured from every angle through soaring window and door openings, fitted out with an imported Belgian aluminium system featuring double-glazing, tilt & turn windows and pivot and sliding doors.
Open-plan living is at the heart of this home, where a sleek Bulthaup kitchen flows seamlessly between double-volume dining on one side and a generous lounge with a suspended, rotating Swiss Fireplace on the other. A stunning glass-enclosed wine cellar leads through to a second kitchen and scullery which is privately positioned and fully fitted with every conceivable mod-con as a functional accompaniment to the central "show kitchen".
Three spacious bedrooms are positioned away from each other for privacy and offer stunning views as well as contemporary en-suite bathrooms fitted out to the highest quality standards. The main bedroom also includes a large walk-in dressing room with floor-to-ceiling cupboards.
An extensive elevated terrace flows out from the living areas and provides breath-taking views over a lush garden, swimming pool and vines towards the mountains. These vistas can be equally enjoyed from two of the bedrooms as well as the study which all enjoy doors onto the terrace.
A large laundry, a storeroom and generous double-garage complete the practical areas of the home with sketch plans available to convert the garage to a fully-self-contained one-bedroom apartment.
