Land Size: 1600m²
Floor Area: 750m²
Stylish 6 bed family home, magnificent views, in one of South Africa’s most prestigious golf estates
Situated near Nottingham Road in the beautiful rolling hills of the KZN Midlands, and close to leading schools, lies Gowrie Farm & Golf Estate. Covering an expanse of 350 hectares, the Estate offers dams for trout fishing, walking, jogging and mountain biking trails, an indoor heated pool, tennis courts, as well as the signature golf course, making it arguably one of South Africa’s most idyllic places to live and to raise children.
Built in 2009, this refined family home is one of the first built on the Estate. With sweeping views over fields down to a dam and with Inhlazane in the distance, this home has been cleverly designed for use all year round and takes full advantage of the spectacular views.
Designed to accommodate a range of different family needs, this elegant home has 3 bedrooms on the ground floor and 3 on the first floor. The spacious main bedroom with a full bathroom and outside shower plus 2 separate dressing rooms is situated on the ground floor off a charming central courtyard with a nearby staircase that leads up to an ideal section for children; a large pyjama lounge and two well-sized bedrooms, a spacious bunk room plus a full bathroom and separate loo. Near the front door are another 2 spacious bedrooms with full en-suite bathrooms cleverly positioned to be cordoned off from the main part of the house making them ideal as income-generating rentals. In addition there is a self-contained large ‘flat’ with its own entrance which can be used for an older child, staff accommodation or for a rent-paying tenant. This home offers enormous possibilities.
The open-plan kitchen with its wood-burning fireplace, gas hob, vaulted ceiling and mahogany wooden floors is the heart of this welcoming home with ample space for a dining table and family room area with windows overlooking the garden and magnificent view. This leads out to another living area which accommodates another dining table and living area which draws one out to the veranda and beautiful garden. There are two well-sized studies which are ideal for working from home. Rimless stack back doors enclose the veranda and off to the one side of the house is a fish pond in a gorgeous low maintenance garden which is cleverly planted and well established to ensure total privacy.
This home has so many extras; a double garage with direct access in to the scullery and kitchen, spacious walk-in pantry, a storeroom big enough to accommodate a trailer, golf carts & bikes plus a workshop. Care has been taken to ensure warmth during the winter months with under-carpet heating, central heating in the bathrooms and 7 Rinnai gas heater stations installed throughout the house. There is also an inverter and solar panels. This is undoubtedly a home to suit every family member’s needs.
