Four-bedroom Victorian beauty in Eastwood, graciously refurbished and positioned in a secure environment
This eye-catching Victorian beauty in Eastwood was built in 1926 and recently refurbished to perfection to maintain its Victorian charm. The house still has its original features like pressed steel ceilings, Oregon pine floors, doors, windows, picture rails and eye-catching leaded glass windows.
Sought-after Eastwood residential area and part of bigger Arcadia is well known for its historical and fascinating buildings and embassies, the latter adding to the good security of the area.
The active and vibrant Arcadia Residents and Ratepayers Association organises community and heritage events, local street markets and art exhibitions, which contribute to the lovely local community sense of belonging in one of the most tranquil and underestimated residential areas of Pretoria.
This tranquil area has seen a transformation on its perimeter with a lot of upmarket developments adding immense value. A new benchmark development is the impressive commercial Abland building next to Loftus Stadium, offering excellent restaurants, a supermarket, gym, office space and hotel, and other trendy shopping malls and restaurants are within a 3- to 5-minute drive away.
Eastwood is also well located within a 2km drive of the University of Pretoria, Boys High, Affies and Pretoria’s CBD. The property on offer consists of the main house, a fully self-contained and spacious garden cottage as well as a smaller second cottage.
From an elegant entrance hall, leads a spacious lounge with cosy fireplace and a dining room big enough to accommodate a 10- or 12-seater dining table.
Doors lead to an outside entertainment and braai area and offer lovely views of the landscaped garden with irrigation system and pool. The four bedrooms and two modern bathrooms, as well as the pyjama lounge/TV room, are clustered together in a well-secured safe haven, with direct access to double, remote-controlled garages.
The spacious main en-suite bedroom is fit for royalty with its magnificent Victorian bathroom. All bedrooms have custom-designed and ample built-in cupboards. A huge bonus are the two fully self-contained cottages on the premises.
One cottage, with own street entrance, garage and a private garden and patio, has also been fully renovated and has a lovely kitchen, spacious open-plan living area, well-sized bedroom and a bathroom with shower. It could also double up as offices for an owner who wants to work from home.
The other well-equipped cottage is ideal for a live-in domestic worker or a student. There is top security with a 10-strand electric fence surrounding the entire property, a fully operational alarm system with sensors in each room, embassy grade burglar bars and security gates, as well as extra police and diplomatic security street patrols on a 24/7 basis.
