ONE-OF-A-KIND RESORT-STYLE HOME WITH THREE SELF-CONTAINED FLATLETS
Seemingly plucked straight from the glossy pages of your favourite lifestyle magazine, this sprawling family home is distinctive, stylish and packed with pizzazz. Within its contemporary walls, it contains four spacious bedrooms, three modern bathrooms, a formal lounge, dining room, family Tv room, an extensive kitchen and a bar brimming with character. To complement the interior of the home, there is an extraordinary outdoor entertainment scene which is liable to take your breath away. And with three additional flatlets on the property, there's ample room to share with extended family, guests or tenants. This home, located in the upmarket suburb of Cowies Hill, goes beyond "house proud"; it's interesting, upbeat and immensely fun.
The entrance to the home is dominated by a wrap-around porch which encloses a modern courtyard. This is where you find a sun-drenched seating area overlooking the terraced garden. From here, a pair of glass-panelled double doors lead to the entrance foyer. To the right is housed the living areas, while to the left, there is a passage to the family sleeping quarters.
Beginning in the formal lounge, whose spacious dimensions are highlighted to great effect by the high ceilings and the large picture window above the bay window seat. Ambient light saturates the scene while a textured stone-clad chimney breast adds a solid focal point. An open plan entrance leads from the lounge into the dining room presented smartly with a chandelier over a 10-seater dining table. As the home's formal dining space, this room is tucked conveniently between the kitchen and the outdoor entertainment hub.
An unobstructed doorway links the dining room with the kitchen. Featuring a spacious galley layout, this kitchen boasts sleek granite countertops and quality solid wood cabinetry. It comes fitted with a ceran stove, extractor fan, double eye-level oven, built-in wine rack and chic breakfast bar which overlooks the kitchen courtyard. There's space for a single fridge/freezer, double fridge/freezer, microwave and laundry. A glass-pane stable door provides direct access to the kitchen courtyard and its treasure trove of culinary plants. This courtyard space comes fitted with a built-in braai and room to accommodate an outside lounge/dining suite.
On the other side of the dining room, space flows into the entertainment heart of the home. To the right is the custom-built bar with its fusion of industrial chic with funky Pop Art explosions of colour. Meanwhile, a door to the left opens into the comfortably air-conditioned Tv lounge which features a vaulted ceiling from which three striking pendant lights are suspended. Both the bar and the Tv room open directly onto the enclosed patio, which in turn provides unrestricted access to the open-air entertainment extravaganza. The enclosed patio is tailor-made for hosting, with a built-in gas braai, exterior lounge and dining suites. A massive glass picture window and overhead protection mean this area is open for entertainment no matter the weather. From here, a gorgeous poolside patio unfolds to tempt you to dine alfresco at one of the outdoor tables, or perhaps soak up the sun from the comfort of one of the perfectly placed lounges that are dotted about the pool. And when the sun goes down, there's still fun to be had with a roaring poolside fire pit surrounded by built-in seating.
To match the upbeat enthusiasm of the living rooms, there is the style and serenity of the family sleeping quarters. A sumptuous master bedroom featuring built-in cupboards and dresser, walk-in closet, gleaming laminate wood floors, air-conditioning and glass doors which open to the front patio, invites peace and relaxation. A stylish ensuite fitted with a freestanding bathtub, frameless shower, heated towel rail and marble-top single vanity completes the picture perfectly thanks to its feature stone walls and dazzling skylight. The three additional family bedrooms include another lovely ensuite room with built-in closets and dressing table, laminate wood floors, air-conditioning and access to a sleek modern bathroom with a seamless shower, single vanity and a feature raw brick wall. The final two interconnecting bedrooms are spacious retreats boasting glossy laminate floors, built-in closets, ceiling fans and one with air-conditioning. Both enjoy direct access to the front patio via glass double doors. These rooms are serviced by the contemporary family bathroom equipped with a seamless, walk-in shower and single vanity, all illuminated by a skylight.
The property also encompasses three self-contained flatlets. The first being a 26sqm studio flat with a bathroom and kitchenette. The second 30sqm flatlet is comprised of a bedroom with a neat ensuite bathroom and kitchenette. Finally, residing above the double automated garage is the 46sqm well-appointed studio flat which includes a kitchen, bathroom and balcony with treetop views.
