Family home to delight. It will be love at first sight! Perfect bone structure, elegant proportions, original deco features, ideal location, this one is a keeper. For the family looking for proximity to some of the best schools in Cape Town, you will find no better place to settle and grow than this 4 bedroomed, double-story delight in Rondebosch’s Golden Mile. And when the children are all grown up, you won’t have to part company because UCT is also just a short hop away. Really your forever home! From the moment you pass through the front door, you will feel the warmth of a much-loved and welcoming space, helped in no small part by the furnishing and décor by the present owners. The high ceilinged, sitting room glows with natural light from the abundant period windows and a gas fireplace invites you to linger. Or open the French doors to the full length patio, classically black and white tiled and with drop down blinds for year round living, dining, entertaining. The patio leads onto a deck and sparkling swimming pool with a water feature, ideal for family fun in the sun. Adjacent to the sitting room is a snug TV lounge, also with an additional fireplace and built-in shelving. A spacious dining-room off the kitchen opens to a pretty courtyard with Italianate fountain – the showstopper moment for your entertaining needs. The L-shaped kitchen is a chef’s delight – gas hob, two built-in ovens, plenty of worktops and storage. The kitchen opens to a separate laundry area and a handy storeroom. The back courtyard is the ideal space for a spot of potted gardening or a quiet cup of coffee. And how about a man cave? Kitted out with a kitchenette, bar counter, indoor braai and two separate entrances – it’s fit for the whole family to enjoy movie nights, or to turn into a teen-pad for the grown-up years as it also has access to a guest bathroom with shower! Pause for breath in the wide vestibule linking the downstairs via a 2-quarter landing staircase to the bedrooms upstairs. Leading off the top landing are the three family bedrooms plus full bathroom leading to the master bedroom with an en-suite. Each of the family bedrooms are generous and all have built in cupboards and built-in desk-space. But it is the master suite that will have you finally head over heels. Capacious and with arched French doors - open up to the full-length balcony where your view is over and through the tree-tops to the back of Table Mountain and beyond. Ample space to turn this bedroom into your private sanctuary. You will enjoy the luxury of a separate dressing room, leading to the gorgeous en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and large vanity.
Lastly, the house has a lush but manageable garden, additional lockable storage, is wired for Wi-Fi, and undercover parking for four cars. The alarm and electric fence take care of security, and the waterwise garden is irrigated via a well point.
