This beautiful house, built by the current owner as a family home 25 years ago, is on the market for the first time. The subject of many recent improvements, you will fall in love with this very neat property, its lovely and spacious gardens, the sweeping panoramic views of both Hout Bay?s majestic mountains and sea and its location in the prestigious and secluded Victorskloof area.
The house is approached from its own driveway through pillared gates (controlled by intercom) up to the parking area, double garage, carport and outdoor storage. Dual entrance to the house is via either the back, or garden front of the property.
The back entrance leads through the updated, tidy and spacious kitchen, with tasteful wooden cupboards and black granite work tops. Through to the capacious dining room with adjoining sitting room, fitted with upgraded aluminum double glazed doors and windows, all with magical views. A corridor leads back through the house to the guest cloakroom, study (with amazing picture window onto mountains and sea), garden entrance door and up to the first floor, with under stairs storage. Flooring to the downstairs areas is a mixture of terracotta tiles and recently laid new carpets.
There is also access through the lounge to the pool area and the very stylish bar/braai/party hut - beautifully thatched, in a circular shape with a curved bar, this really enhances the outdoor entertaining potential of the house.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms, all carpeted and with underfloor heating. Two updated, clean white bathrooms complete this very neat house. The first floor can be sealed off from the remainder of the house due to intricate leaf-patterned ironwork security grilles over the windows, together with a screen over the landing with lockable grille door, crafted in the same style. The alarm and intercom can both be set/operated from upstairs, as well as downstairs.
The garden, much of which is taken up with a magnificent rectangular lawn (big enough to host 5 a side football matches) is a little slice of heaven. Gazing across to the mountains at Vlakkenberg, or the sea in Hout Bay, it is easy to feel as if you are in your own patch of paradise. There is a great feeling of space and being within one?s own territory, assisted by the fact that this is a peaceful part of Hout Bay. The gardens are flanked on all sides by mature trees & thick vegetation and the borehole system and JoJo tanks are neatly concealed behind a screen of trees and bushes. Pets would be as happy here as their owners, as the two current canine incumbents will testify.
Further information: The house is fully alarmed and beamed, extending into the garden and there are outdoor floodlights that have day/night sensors fitted.
The borehole has capacity to pump out around 10,000 litres per day of good quality water, which is currently used for irrigation purposes, as well as to feed the swimming pool.
There is a new recently installed geyser and energy efficient heat pump. The house is connected for fibre internet, with advertised speeds up to 100mbps available. Some contents of the house may be available separately, subject to negotiation with the owner.
*For buyers in search of extra accommodation, there may be potential to build a flatlet above the garage, and/or a cottage in the garden, subject to the necessary plans and consents*
