DELIGHTFUL "DOLL'S HOUSE" WITH BEAUTIFUL OUTLOOK AND MANICURED GARDENS
This gorgeous character home, endearingly christened "The Doll's House", comes awash in old world charm and elegance. Encompassing four generous bedrooms (including two master suites), two and a half bathrooms, a spacious formal lounge, dining room, cosy Tv room, modern kitchen, extensive covered patio and swimming pool. Set on an elevated above road position, with breathtaking tree views, the house is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped garden with water features and well-maintained lawns.
Situated in the sought-after suburb of Cowies Hill, the home falls within the proposed Cowie's Hill Estate and enjoys all the benefits of being located within 10 minutes drive of numerous well-regarded schools, popular restaurants and shopping facilities, such as the Westville Mall.
Being built along graceful architectural lines means a timeless elegance is bestowed on the property. This is reflected in the pitched gable roof with its slate tiles, the elegant white colonnade that marches along the patio, and the quintessential cottage pane windows. All these combine to make this appealing home picture-postcard perfect.
The downstairs area of the house comprises the main living and entertaining areas. The entry to this level is through a mirrored foyer which leads into the large formal lounge. This impressive space is highlighted by original decorative crown moulding, beautiful wall sconces and a gas fireplace set in a striking stone-clad feature wall. The lounge enjoys access through two double glass doors onto the extended patio. A further set of double doors with decorative glass panels opens onto the separate dining room. The space in this room can be extended even more by folding back the double doors in the dining room, which lead out onto the patio. The patio is a truly marvellous space for entertaining and soaking up the outdoors. Protected by storm blinds, there is plenty of room to fit outdoor dining and lounge furniture comfortably, and it also includes an extended covered area incorporating a brickwork bar, built-in gas braai and a built-in coal/wood braai. The patio boasts beautiful views of the pool, peaceful water feature and lush garden beyond. The configuration of these living areas serves a dual purpose. It allows spaces to be clearly defined but also means the doors can be opened wide to allow a free flow of movement between the dining room, formal lounge and patio - making it convenient for easy entertaining. Situated in the passage just off the formal lounge is the neat and handy guest facilities.
Further down the passage is the well-maintained kitchen that comes complete with sleek granite counters, under counter lighting and an eye level oven with a warmer drawer and ceran top. A back door allows for convenient direct access to the kitchen. Completing the main living areas of the home is the snug Tv room which features a wrought iron chandelier. The room can be entered via the foyer, or directly through the double garage - providing secure access to the house.
The lower level is also home to a spacious downstairs master bedroom suite. This remarkable space is composed of two rooms: a generous, bright bedroom with neat ensuite bathroom; and a pyjama lounge finished with a chandelier, crown moulding on the ceiling, and decorative work on the row of built-in closets. This entire suite of rooms comes with a private entrance, which means it can easily be used as a separate guest suite.
The upper level hosts the sleeping area of the home. This encompasses three generous bedrooms - including the 2nd upstairs master suite - a modern full bathroom and a large balcony. The master suite is a spacious affair with room enough for a comfy reading nook under the pitched roof. The room comes equipped with air-conditioning and built-in closets. It also boasts direct access to the full bathroom. These facilities (which are finished in warm, earthy tones) feature a modern stone soaking tub, double stone vanity and separate shower. The bathroom can also be entered via the passageway, allowing it to function as the family bathroom. The additional two bedrooms both have convenient built-in closets, with the larger of the two enjoying access to a private balcony which boasts beautiful treetops views of the surrounding area.
Aside from the classic architecture and gorgeous garden, the property also includes: domestic accommodation, a separate laundry room, double automatic garage, automatic gates within a walled entrance and is secured with beams, alarm and boomed access control.
