MEDITERRANEAN STYLE VILLA BUILT FOR FAMILY AND ENTERTAINING
Boasting distinctive curb-appeal, Mediterranean architecture, and a well-established terraced garden this family home, affectionately known as "Blue Doors", encompasses: four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, open plan living/dining area, lounge/bar, galley kitchen, covered patio and swimming pool with sundeck - all set within a lush tropical garden.
Due to its location in the sought-after suburb of Woodside, this home falls within the proposed Cowies Hill Estate, and is situated 5 minutes from the Westville Mall and has easy access to the M13.
With its arched portals, exposed beams, terracotta roof tiles and white wall finishes, this Mediterranean inspired villa on the hill comes loaded with character, beautiful views and eye-catching features. Taking full advantage of its north facing aspect, the home soaks up the sun throughout the day, living up to its balmy Mediterranean ethos.
In keeping with the Mediterranean Revival style architecture, the home is accessed through the striking blue door, which is protected by a terracotta tiled portico. This gives entry into the bright and spacious open plan living area. This space encompasses the living and dining areas which are beautifully enhanced by wooden posts, cross beams and a feature wall of warm, exposed brickwork. A large row of windows bathes the room in natural light and frames a picturesque view over the pool and treetop canopy. The space moves seamlessly into the chandelier-lit dining room and on through into a separate lounge with bar. With a built-in bar and wall to ceiling ceramic wine rack, this room is ideal for entertaining while watching the latest sports matches. Alternatively, this room would make a great games room for the kids to watch Tv or play video games.
Off the living area, double doors open out onto the covered corner patio which features terracotta tiled roof and elegant archways. This versatile patio is an entertainer's dream which allows you to host guest in style by the built-in braai, whilst enjoying the large inviting pool and garden vistas, regardless of the weather. The outdoor entertaining space is extended even further beyond the swimming pool by a sundeck which is surrounded by swaying palm trees and overlooks the lower garden.
A passageway from the main living area gives access to a large galley style kitchen graced by a high ceiling. Equipped with sleek black granite counters, double eye-level oven, breakfast bar, room for a double fridge/freezer and loads of cupboard space, the kitchen then flows through an archway into the laundry area.
Also housed off the main passageway is the family sleeping quarters. This encompasses the spacious master suite, which features a wall of built-in closets, ceiling fan, laminate flooring, exposed beams and beautiful garden view. Two additional spaces comprise the master bedroom: the full ensuite bathroom and a study (which could easily be converted into a walk-in closet). The other two bedrooms on this level feature solid wood built-in closet units with dressing tables/desks, ceiling fans, laminate flooring and windows looking out onto the back garden. Both rooms have easy access to the family bathroom.
The fourth bedroom, an ideal guest suite or teen pad, is located up a flight stairs off the main living room. The bedroom, which has access to an ensuite bathroom, features solid wood built-in closets and dressing table/desk along with a ceiling fan and elevated pool and garden vistas.
The property also includes a one bedroom flatlet with terracotta tiled roof and encompassing a kitchenette, ensuite bathroom and private patio overlooking the lower garden. With its separate entrance from the driveway, this flatlet could potentially be upgraded to a self-contained unit for rental income or domestic accommodation.
