It is a privilege to be marketing this landmark Franschhoek property, Roubaix House, which has been the residence and gallery of renowned potter and ceramist, David Walters for more than 20years. Wandering through the various rooms downstairs where all the wonderful pieces of art are on display, one can imagine it as a beautiful spacious home circa 1840 with the gleaming wood floors, architraves, shutters and staircase. There is an enormous room with fireplace suitable for a dine-in kitchen, with doors opening to the charming garden and enclosed stoep. The upstairs floor is currently the owner’s residence made up of the large living area, kitchen and dining room, study and two bedrooms en-suite. All rooms open to balconies with a large balcony on the west side suitable for al fresco dining. These rooms can also be reconfigured into more bedrooms should the house be converted back to a residence only. There is also a lovey bright studio apartment above the garaging for four cars. All this accommodation is set in an intriguing garden with lots of trees, a stream, a well and loads of off-street parking.
Asking price: R9 950 000
