Rare opportunity to buy a superb single level home in a quiet setting. This home is at the end of a cul-de-sac, next to a wetland area so your privacy won’t be disturbed by any passing or peripheral traffic. In fact, there is no nearby traffic. Built in the Karoo shuttered style, using an eminent architect to the owner’s specifications, with wide passageways and easy access. The whole home is wheelchair friendly. The north-facing home is well positioned on the erf of 2 348 m². The magnificent garden features a raised dry wall vegetable garden and pond, with many indigenous trees and plants including a prolific banana plantation all providing a forest-like atmosphere, and its utter peacefulness will soothe your soul. This 3-bedroomed house has 4 bathrooms and 4 extra rooms and features an open plan dining and living area with sprung wooden floors of Siberian Larch, and a Peter Oswald furnished kitchen. The bedrooms are carpeted, and two have underfloor heating. There is an inordinately large Veranda of over 150 m², around 2 sides of the house in the Karoo style, perfect for entertaining on a large scale. An independent cottage is adjacent to one corner of the main home. The homestead is built on the historic remains of the Old Water Mill and is mentioned in the Overstrand Heritage Survey Draft Report. The erf has the use of “Leiwater” (free-flowing water in open channels) which was allocated to 98 sites in Stanford in about 1858.
