Property descriptionSOLE MANDATEOwned by one family for almost 50 years, this much-loved property is situated on quiet Links Drive - the best-kept secret on Leisure Island. North-facing, with views of the distant Outeniqua Mountains & fronting onto Kingfisher Creek Conservation Wetlands, this windless side of the island is serene & allows year-round outdoor living. The house is set back on a large stand with an indigenous planted garden & mature shade trees set in a rolling lawn.
Owned by only two families, it was originally constructed incorporating antique teak elements salvaged from a historic hotel in Cape Town which was demolished in the 1960s. These elements were incorporated into the sleek classic interior when the architect-owner fully renovated the home, giving rise to timeless detail & a tailored aesthetic. The home is designed for easy maintenance to allow for time away without worry. The favorite room of the house is the north-facing, deep & wide covered verandah that has a folding frameless glass enclosure for year-round use. The house is deceptively compact from the street, however, has a generous & flexible layout. It has an intimate feel for a small family yet can comfortably expand to accommodate two families when needed.
Aside from 3-bedroom suites with master suite & private balcony boasting northern views over the lagoon in the main dwelling, there is a separate bachelor flat with a private balcony above the double garage and an additional small outside room with a bathroom situated next to the pool area – useful as overflow accommodation or a workshop.
Living spaces flow throughout the house allowing for different social groupings.
