CHARACTER DOUBLE STOREY RESIDENCE OFFERING UNIQUE POSSIBILITIES.
This much-loved family home is perfectly placed for quick access to all the Wynberg precincts as well as the M3 and is zoned GR4. Lying close to the Victoria Hospital and Alphen Hill Road it would also give the new owners many other possibilities should they wish to expand the dwelling or work from home. The Wynberg schools are a short drive or ride away.
Built in the first quarter of the last century, the home is filled with a sense of the warmth, space and the comforts of yesteryear. Much attention has been given to the use of wood in its features and the wood floors, though currently carpeted, form the base of all the rooms. From the garden and hallway one takes a step down to the main lounge where a stunning character pub in imbuia and yellowwood is in place. Doors to the relaxed patio lead from this area. An informal TV nook with Jetmaster fireplace and a dining area share the reception space. A large double bedroom with built-in cupboards and study are also situated on this level. The study is spacious enough to become a fourth single bedroom and has built-in shelves and cupboarding. Like many homes of the era, there is no en-suite bathroom downstairs but a bathroom with bath, handbasin and toilet serves the area. The kitchen has its own wooden-warmth appeal and provides a hob, extractor and double eye-level oven. A separate laundry room is plumbed for a washing machine and has a large washing trough basin besides extra storage and space for a dryer. Under the stairs a door leads to the property's wine cellar. The handsome wooden banister leads to the upper storey and light streams into the upstairs bedrooms. The large main bedroom is on the north side of the property. Here interesting walk-in as well as built-in cupboards are for clothing and storage. Under-roof space has been well utilised. The second spacious bedroom has similar features and both have interesting alcoves for multiple usage. Fitted mirrors form a part of the features and a door to a juliet balcony opens up a stunning view of the Constantiaberg mountains. A little 'chat-room' connects the space between the two bedrooms. The upstairs bathroom consists of shower, vanity unit and toilet.
The front garden and the side garden are manageable and carefully landscaped and the patio leads down to the gunite pool with paved surrounds and garden. The pool is solar heated and maintains a comfortable temperature even in cooler weather.
This property boats two entrances - front and back. The front entrance leads to a single, extra-length garage with the staff quarters alongside. This room has the makings of a neat separate entrance bedsitter and has a shower, basin and toilet. The back entrance has a security gate and paved, secure parking for 3 vehicles.
An interesting, quaint and welcoming family home or premises for those who think 'out of the box'.
