Seven-bedroom family home in Hout Bay has much to offer
This substantial house offers everything a buyer could wish for. It is in excellent condition, well presented and keenly priced.
It is a seven-bedroom home on a plot of about 1 hectare, in the central, yet equestrian heart of Hout Bay. The property has a tranquil, private and rural feel to it, but is a mere 10 minutes from local beaches, mountains and shopping, and only 25 minutes from Cape Town’s CBD and southern suburbs.
Not only is it a generously proportioned family home, it also offers fantastic leisure opportunities with a lap pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, tennis court, dam, separate gym, stables and paddock/manége (horse training area).
The house has ample room for all-year entertaining, with wraparound terraces adjoining the living areas and balconies on both floors. There is a large outdoor lapa with a built-in braai, overlooking a pool and affording wonderful views over the valley.
The spacious bedrooms are all en-suite, and several rooms on the ground floor serve as potential ante-rooms for work-from-home use, as well as domestic work rooms and pantries/sculleries.
Fountains and a koi pond around the house add to the sense of calm and zen-like well-being. This is truly a place where one can switch off and enjoy life, but which accommodates a variety of uses and lifestyles.
There is generous space to raise a family, entertain, work – or even run a guest house. Other amenities include garage and outdoor covered parking for up to eight vehicles. Accommodation for staff is located in the gardens.
The property has its own borehole and water treatment plant, which delivers high-quality purified drinking water. While the property is ready to move into, having been refurbished, there are areas for development and possible remodelling.
Equally, there is opportunity to sub-divide or create an income-generating model. Some contents are available by separate negotiation. Such a wonderful home has to be seen to be appreciated.
