Property of the Month – Your forever home! R11 890 000
It will be love at first sight! Perfect bone structure, elegant proportions, original deco features, ideal location – this one is a keeper. For the family looking for proximity to some of the best schools in Cape Town, you will find no better place to settle and grow than this 4 bedroomed, double-story delight in Rondebosch’s Golden Mile. And when the children are all grown up, you won’t have to part company because UCT is also just a short hop away.
From the moment you pass through the front door, you will feel the warmth of a much-loved and welcoming space – helped in no small part by the furnishing and décor by the present owners.
The high-ceilinged sitting room glows with natural light from the abundant period windows and a gas fireplace invites you to linger. Or open the French doors to the full-length patio, classically black and white tiled and with drop down blinds for year-round living/dining/entertaining.
The patio leads onto a deck and sparkling swimming pool with a water feature, ideal for family fun in the sun.
Adjacent to the sitting room is a snug TV lounge, also with an additional fireplace and built-in shelving.
A spacious dining-room off the kitchen opens to a pretty courtyard with Italianate fountain – the showstopper moment for your entertaining needs.
The L-shaped kitchen is a chef’s delight – gas hob, two built-in ovens, plenty of worktops and storage. The kitchen opens to a separate laundry area and a handy storeroom. The back courtyard is the ideal space for a spot of potted gardening or a quiet cup of coffee.
And how about a man cave? Kitted out with a kitchenette, bar counter, indoor braai and two separate entrances – it’s fit for the whole family to enjoy movie nights, or to turn into a teen-pad for the grown-up years as it also has access to a guest bathroom with shower!
Pause for breath in the wide vestibule linking the downstairs via a 2-quarter landing staircase to the bedrooms upstairs. Leading off the top landing are the three family bedrooms plus full bathroom leading to the master bedroom with an en-suite. Each of the family bedrooms are generous and all have built in cupboards and built-in desk-space.
But it is the master suite that will have you finally head over heels. Capacious and with arched French doors – open up to the full-length balcony where your view is over and through the tree-tops to the back of Table Mountain and beyond. Ample space to turn this bedroom into your private sanctuary. You will enjoy the luxury of a separate dressing room, leading to the gorgeous en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and large vanity.
Lastly, the house has a lush but manageable garden, additional lockable storage, is wired for Wi-Fi, and undercover parking for four cars. The alarm and electric fence take care of security, and the water-wise garden is irrigated via a well point.
