A most beautiful Victorian masterpiece …. in a most beautiful road in Silwood. As you enter the long drive you immediately feel the personality of this magnificent home which is set well back on the property. An elegant and graceful wrap-around balcony from the upstairs looks down on an expansive established garden with trees and lighting. The large pool is private …. and there are jasmine creepers everywhere!! Matching the upstairs balcony you will find a downstairs wrap-around veranda with ample space for a good sized luncheon. This looks out to the garden where you can watch the children play. An impressive hallway leads to many voluptuous rooms which include a large study with fireplace, a lounge with sliding doors to outside patio and covered braai area with pizza oven. There’s a good sized eat-in kitchen and either a separate diningroom or a family room or a formal lounge with fireplace (currently unused) as well as a quaint guest loo with storage space under the stairs. A Beautiful Oregon staircase with a stain glass window on the landing leads you to the upstairs where you will find 5 bedrooms, some with fireplaces, as well as 2 bathrooms. There is no en-suite but an easy conversion could establish one.
Additionals: A guest cottage or full domestic quarters, a good sized laundry, double garage, 2 x double carports and loads of parking space. Solar powered features. Features: Oregon flooring, high pressed ceilings, Victorian fireplaces, stained glass window, arches and sash/bay windows with shutters. This home has been updated in certain ways leaving some authentic spaces for old world charm. This really is Colonial living at its best.
