This 745 sqm Classical American Homestead styled on the homes found in The Hamptons Estate outside New York City is situated on a comfortable erf of 2250sq meters. Located near the peak of the hill in this neighborhood in a secluded panhandle it has unusually spectacular views of the estate and Klipriver basin from both ground and upper levels.
From the secure driveway, you are met with 3 garages alongside an indigenous protea garden and a voluminous entrance colonnade consisting of two dramatic arches which extend through bringing light into the entire home from north to south. The entrance into a double volume hall leads open planned into the Grand room with its classic coffered high ceilings, dining area and designer kitchen. This flows onto a spacious enclosed patio area and the pool entertainment area with permanent gazebo. The TV lounge, guest restroom and study are styled into a suite so that business guests can be entertained without being exposed to the balance of the home. The Clive Christian kitchen boasts a separate scullery, functional centre island, large pantry and wine wall with a walk in fridge for those busy weekends. Completing the ground level are the ample laundry, sumptuous servants suite and an enclosed courtyard.
A silver black granite staircase with French balustrade leads upstairs to a landing and the family living area. Consisting of 3 private suites all with walk in closets, ample bathrooms en suite and private sitting areas and private balconies, the massive master suite has a magnificent dressing room and his & hers en suite. Off the landing are a pajama lounge, madam’s study and workroom. The front 60sqm balcony with its views of sunrise, sunset and night view over the city lights and the Eco estate oozes the serenity of country living.
The indigenous garden completes the setting with terraced serenely verdant walks, 30 grown trees and well tended natural beds are all obtrusively irrigated. A walk up the terrace brings us to a functional boma, the ideal setting for outdoor functions with spectacular views over the city at night. A modern day yet peaceful country manor personified.
