Property description
This spectacular property is set in De Goede Hoop Security Estate, one of South Africa's premium security estates and best-kept secrets.

Each stand is 5 acres in size, with access to bridle paths for horse riders around the entire estate plus direct access to secure hiking trails on a private section of the mountain.

This contemporary Noordhoek farmhouse with spectacular mountain views is nestled in a forest with two perennial streams offering an unrivalled sense of peace and natural beauty.

There are multiple dwellings including the four-bedroom main house, a studio apartment, plus a completely separate and substantial stand-alone three-bedroom cottage a short walk from the main house.

The natural gardens are magnificent and include a 300-year-old English oak with a Kirstenbosch Boomslang treetop walkway from the main house via a treehouse deck through the tree canopy, past the dam and on to the cottage.

The modern Cape Vernacular barn-style main house is eight years old. The bedroom wing has reclaimed yellowwood floors and doors lending a sense of going back in time without losing its contemporary edge.

This is a home of proportions and textures with high ceilings, voluminous spaces, wood-and-steel ceiling trusses, charcoal limestone floors, Malmesbury stone, raw concrete and natural materials.

The spacious light-filled kitchen is the heart of the home with a large open fireplace and modern conveniences. Textures, light and functionality were key in the design of this country kitchen.

The main bedroom has double sliding doors onto a wooden deck with an outdoor bath and shower overlooking the forest. The indoor main en-suite has floor-to-ceiling glass keeping you constantly in touch with nature whilst maintaining the utmost privacy.

There are two additional en-suite bedrooms, each with an upstairs mezzanine and sliding doors leading onto the garden, as well as a separate full en-suite guest suite with a lounge and kitchen of its own.

Entertaining options are endless from long lazy lunches under the Wisteria-lined terrace overlooking the pool; cosy winter evenings around the open hearth in the kitchen; or in the shade of the covered veranda with views of the dam, forest and Chapman's Peak beyond.

The Cottage is a three-bedroom home, which was the original main house on the property.
It overlooks a natural pool/fishpond and has sweeping views of the dam, forest and mountains.
In keeping with the style of the property, it is Cape vernacular with an open-planned kitchen, lounge and dining area.
The main en-suite has an additional outdoor shower, there is a large 2nd bedroom/study with an en-suite bathroom and a third upstairs bedroom.
A bonus is a brand-new studio-style apartment with a small kitchen above the double garage.

Added Extras in the main house include:
• Mezzanine office space area (large enough for 2 or 3 separate workstations)
• Oversized triple garage
• Underfloor solar heating exchange system throughout
• Off-grid water filtration
• Double glazed windows/glass doors
• Large wine cellar
• Laundry room, scullery and walk-in pantry
• Space to build stables
