Magnificent estate home in wildlife setting with good security

Bateleur Bastion, a unique estate to the east of Pretoria, nestles against the northern slopes of the Bronberg mountain range and within the municipal boundaries of Wapadrand.

It provides perfect peace of mind and an opportunity to own an ideal stronghold in the mountains, with views interrupted only by indigenous vegetation.

A variety of water birds can be found at the dam on the estate. Picture: Supplied

There are several buck species, abundant bird life, indigenous trees and natural bush and rock outcrops – ideal for the professional or retired person who wants tranquillity on their doorstep, but in the centre of a 24/7-manned security estate.

Bateleur Bastion consists of 13.5 hectares on which 76 fulltitle owners have built their ideal homes. The estate also includes a dam from a natural flow of water from the higher-lying areas.

Strict regulations regarding the preservation of the natural environment and the promotion of indigenous plants and trees are applied by a management body. 

The sites are located on three natural plateaus, some offering breath-taking northern views.

The living room is the heart of the home and sliding doors lead to an outside area. Picture: Supplied

This magnificent five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom, architect-designed house has a refreshing, staggered layout in the bedroom section, while the house has a U-shaped layout around a centrally located garden-courtyard and patio area, accessible from adjacent rooms.

The heart of the house is a generously sized living room, flowing to a spacious undercover stoep connecting with a practical bridge over a sparkling pool and private wooden deck.

There is a pool and an entertainment /braai area.

There is also an open entertainment/braai area. An open-plan kitchen is separated from the living area by a six-seater granite slab.

The kitchen offers a pantry and fridge/freezer compartment. A connecting room houses scullery and laundry facilities.

A separate private lounge/study to the left of the entrance hall offers sliding doors to the courtyard, and a formal dining room has a connecting hatch to the adjacent open-plan kitchen.

The main bedroom is en-suite, while three others downstairs are all north-facing. Trees provide privacy. Each bedroom has a spacious walk-in cupboard.

The garden offers relaxation and tranquillity. Picture: Supplied

A fifth bedroom is en-suite with a large multi-purpose room upstairs with its own balcony and awesome views. Added are two large store rooms and staff accommodation adjacent to the house. There are four garages, two automated, and plenty of parking space for visitors.

The homeowners’ association is planning to provide means to deal with load-shedding. Are you interested in this property?
