This beautiful Edwardian home circa 1903 is referred to in Dr Hans Fransen’s “The Old Buildings of the Cape” as follows:
“A single storeyed Villa on stone plinth, symmetrical with two bay-windows flanking a very fine front door, like its sidelights with stained glass and arched heads and set in an arched recess. Its veranda is of masonry under imitation half-timbered and dentilled pediments.”
Now lovingly restored on two erven with a large garden to develop or landscape to your heart’s desire. Elevated and north facing, basked in light and boasting grandiose inter-leading reception rooms with the most beautiful wooden floors, high pressed steel ceilings and a period fireplace (now fitted with a wood burning stove).
Enjoy beautiful views from the multitude of tall sash windows with its original shutters and gorgeous city and mountain views from the newly renovated main suite with a pyjama lounge and nursery upstairs. There are four beautifully appointed bedrooms with two separate bathrooms downstairs and a large informal dining room flowing onto a pretty courtyard at the back from where one can look straight down the wide passage to the ornate stained glass front door and the city beyond.
Conveniently situated on a most sought after Avenue within walking distance to St Cyprian’s school, Will’s café and the Oranjezicht City Farm. A spacious double garage with direct access to the large level garden adds further value to this most desirable home.
