Renovated Historic single-level, dual-entrance property on large grounds containing original Coach House. Originally bought from Pam Golding herself, nearly 50 years ago, this distinguished property includes the original Coach House and is set on large, leafy grounds of 3412 sqm.

Sub-divided in 1880 from the original homestead belonging to Lord de Villiers, this home is the epitome of old world style and grace, transporting you to a bygone era.

Two elegantly curved grand Bay windows flank the gracious entrance steps which lead across a wide verandah to the handsome front entrance doors. This opens onto a view through the graceful entrance hall and imposing central Voorkamer to the courtyard beyond. The Voorkamer serving as the social hub of the home and the perfect space for a variety of social events.

Adjacent to them both is the "Great Room" which contains kitchen dining and sitting areas under exposed beams with baronial wood-burning fireplace and covered verandah, perfect setting to shield from the elements, overlooking the East lawns and garden. The inside-outside flow between the spaces is a defining feature of the home.

Also on the East side of the home, the grand main bedroom with its theatrical curved Bay window allows expansive views of the garden, tree-lined driveway and beyond, as far as Muizenberg. The main bedroom also contains an original Victorian fireplace which captures the quintessential aura of the property.

Between the main bedroom and Great Room lies a cosy TV room with a wood-burning stove and double French doors leading to the garden.

On the West wing there are 3 additional bedrooms, 2 of which have en-suite bathrooms. There is also a built-in study area off the end bedroom in the West wing. The second Bay window room, with Jetmaster wood-burning fireplace is an elegant room which could potentially serve a variety of purposes.



Coach House

Separate from the home is the absolutely charming and original Coach House dating back to the 1880s that has been superbly renovated to incorporate a guest suite in the loft with its own separate staircase.

Downstairs lies a second bedroom with en-suite that has direct access to the back of the Coach House through double French doors.

Two separate entrances provides a private guest entrance or alternatively a second entrance should one elects to let out the Coach House.

The lush romantic (borehole) irrigated garden surrounded by mature trees is the perfect landscape for a family or discerning buyer wanting privacy all round. The vast lawns provide the perfect setting for impromptu ball games.
