Nestled in the heart of Higgovale in sought-after Higgo Road bordering Table Mountain Nature Reserve is this beautiful multi-level home in elevated position with magnificent all-round views of Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, lush vegetation and the City below.
Re-designed and completely renovated/refurbished in 2018 by Daniel Maggs Architects, this truly is a magnificent and unique property. As you enter the house, you’ll feel a welcoming warmth expressed by the marvellous play of wood, cement and stone, dark walls and high ceilings. There’s an immediate sense of a comfortable and happy family home with ample accommodation and generous spaces for easy living. The beautiful wooden staircase takes you upstairs to the main open-plan living area, formal lounge and dining room with a wonderful flow to the large entertainment deck with great views.
Your eyes will marvel at the stunning wooden cladding, the light coming in through teak wooden shutters and the lush greenery and views of Lion’s Head through the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. The narrow staircase in the lounge takes you up to the “Crow’s Nest”/cigar lounge/music/zen/artist room behind glass doors so you are still part of it all and yet private in your own space. On the same level, flowing off the kitchen, is the TV room with a fireplace for chilly winter evenings and this room leads out to the upper garden terrace with Table Mountain almost in your back garden. It is a peaceful and secluded area with lush vegetation and tall established trees.
The bespoke state-of-the-art kitchen with marble countertops and Miele appliances is open-plan to the living areas and it flows to cleverly hidden backrooms such as a separate scullery, separate laundry and enclosed back yard.
Down the passage on the same level is the main bedroom with its en-suite bathroom and bespoke dressing room. There is one more bedroom, a family bathroom, the cloak room and study/home office/3 rd bedroom on this level. A staircase takes you upstairs to another 2 spacious bedroom with built-in cupboards and a full family bathroom. One bedroom leads out to a little balcony where surrounded by tall trees and listening to the birds and Table Mountain as a magnificent backdrop, you really have a feeling of being in a treehouse.
Downstairs, on entry level you have a huge guest flat-let consisting of one bedroom leading out to the pool patio, lounge/dining area with a galley kitchen and an en-suite bathroom. There is also a large entertainment room with an inter-leading playroom for the kids/a studio/additional backup garage. These rooms flow out to the wonderful large pool patio area with a lap pool complemented by lush vegetation and beautiful vistas particularly of Lion’s Head.
Separate from the main house, basically under the pool deck, is the staff residence that features 2 separate 1 bedroomed flat-lets. There are Jo-Jo tanks for back-up water supply, an electricity back-up system – Inverter & Solar – so you’re almost off the grid. With direct access from your back garden onto Table Mountain Nature Reserve for walks and hikes, this is a home for lovers of nature.
