Charming Three Bedroom Village Home
This very special property is a fine example of a charming village home, carefully updated to present elegant European style all within the setting of a rambling, country garden with gorgeous mountain views.The living areas offer expansive double-volume ceilings with stacking cottage-pane glass doors creating a light-filled interior with a seamless flow between the inside and outdoor living spaces which incorporate a balau-decked outside dining terrace and built-in braai overlooking the swimming pool, as well as a classic Finnish Sauna in a hidden corner of the garden. A well-designed kitchen incorporates built-in appliances with a practical cooking and prep counter ideal for relaxed entertaining and open-plan to the dining area with fireplace. The scullery and laundry is adjacent to the kitchen but hidden from the living areas.
A large but cosy lounge area with contemporary Morso combustion fireplace, is well positioned for both entertaining as well as relaxed family time with stacking doors to the garden. A further area currently incorporating a baby grand piano, would be suitable as an additional living area. The master bedroom suite on the ground level, incorporates a fireplace and feature bath positioned to take in peaceful garden views and also offers a luxurious en-suite bathroom with classic marble finishes adding to its contemporary spa feel. A second, smaller bedroom is located on the other side of the property, also with its own en-suite bathroom and doors to the side courtyard garden. This space converts well between a guest bedroom and its current use as a yoga/meditation studio. Finally, a bespoke steel and solid wood staircase adds a practical yet architectural feature to access a lofty third bedroom upstairs with another luxurious bathroom and a large patio looking down over the gardens and towards the Mont Rochelle mountains. This charming village home is well located within easy walking distance to the high street and also offers a single garage, two off- street parkings, a storeroom and it’s own private borehole.
