Great value for his top-notch home with amazing views and features.

This stunning property, on 2629 sqm, nestles in The Glades Nature Reserve, a tranquil little valley abutting the big Wedderwill game reserve. The majestic beauty of the Hottentots Holland mountains provides a stunning backdrop

Designed with flair to support a luxurious, classy country lifestyle. The homestead is built on three levels and is marked by large expanses of clear glass, they are double-glazed for winter comfort. The windows and doors accentuate natural light and bring the outdoors inside. Every room has physical access via sliding and stacking doors to the decks and verandas.

The impression of spaciousness is accentuated by the unimpeded flow of open plan and double volume space through to the luxurious treed garden, the wooden deck and pool and the entertainment area. 

Access from the upper entrance or the paved driveway to the entrance courtyard. 

The heart of the home is at ground floor level. The double-volume entrance hall leads to the generously proportioned living areas. The open plan dining room flows into the formal lounge and family TV room as well as a wine bar with an airconditioned wine cellar/storage facility. The abutting Master Chef kitchen is designed for entertaining, as well as convenience. The state-of-the-art kitchen has a full range of integrated top-end appliances, supplemented by a well-fitted scullery and a laundry.

The centre of the relaxed lifestyle of the owners is the entertainment patios and verandas, shaded by large trees.

The double-glassed sliding/folding/stacking doors from every room create a feeling of living in the trees. The infinity swimming pool, a large water feature, a “conversation fire pit” with seating, encourage an unparalleled indoor/outdoor lifestyle for family and friends.

The Master Bedroom is a dream, with verandas on three sides allowing you to feel as if you sleeping in a tree house. The birds might wake you in the morning. The Master Bathroom is a symphony of style and class. Everything is top-notch and designed for living life to the fullest. The adjoining walk-in dressing room is so spacious you would be envied by Ivanca Trump.

The private guest wing leads from the entrance area and accommodates the expansive office with an adjoining bedroom. The spiral staircase leads to the loft Bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a veranda from which you touch the trees.

The garden borders the Glades Nature Reserve and provides breath-taking views of the valley and the surrounding mountains – it’s for people who need breathing space and don’t like living on top of neighbours. A wine cellar/ man cave (currently used to display the owners’ collection of motorbikes) and two substantial store/work rooms are located on the lower level.
