Property descriptionThis exquisite home is located on a large, residential erf of 8763m among woodlands at the base of the Constantia Nek hiking trail. This extraordinary property commands the most breathtaking views of the Constantia valley, vineyards and False Bay. The three-storey homestead offers a generous 1400m of under-roof accommodation. The dwelling has been designed in a beautiful, contemporary Cape Dutch style and is an entertainer's dream with a wonderful flow throughout the home, providing stunning formal and informal sitting and dining rooms. Built in an U shape, the structure hugs a large courtyard to the north, with extensive parking space, while the south features two grand patios on the basement and ground floor levels. Both patios run across the length and breadth of the home and offer views of the enchanting, terraced garden abounding in fruit trees, roses and shrubs. The dwelling has been designed in the style of a classic old Cape Dutch manor, but the structure is in fact, much newer, built in 1991, with the upstairs bedroom component being remodelled in 2017. Extensive use of solid wood is a defining element as seen in the doors, windows, shutters and much of the panelling and shelving. A grand double-volume entrance hall sets the tone. Leading off the polished quarry tiled entrance hall to the left and right are four beautifully appointed reception rooms. Also on this level, the kitchen, with separate scullery, is open-plan to a cosy lounge, which leads to an inviting braai room/TV lounge enclosed by stack-back, floor-to-ceiling glass panels, embracing magnificent views and incorporating the woodlands to the east and False Bay to the south. The basement houses a generously proportioned tiled family/entertainment room with a built-in solid oak bar, a wine cellar and tasting room, as well as an office or gym room, three staff quarters with a lounge, a shower and toilet and ample storage. The upstairs level, with five en-suite bedrooms was remodelled in 2017 and offers expansive windows allowing in lots of sunshine.The bathrooms are luxurious, particularly the generously proportioned main en-suite which is complemented by spacious his and hers walk-in dressing rooms and an exceptionally large main bedroom, leading to a comfortable pyjama lounge. The property includes a heat-pump warmed pool, a Jacuzzi, borehole and a tennis court as well as a separate self-contained cottage.
