What you should know about this house

Amenities and special features of this house

In the heart of one of the most coveted roads in the Silwood area of Rondebosch sits this Victorian gem. It's a gracious, inviting home that combines the elegance, proportions and living space of times past with all the modern amenities you could wish for.

This is a home for entertaining in, for raising a family in and one of those houses that seldom changes hands. Within walking distance of schools like Bishops, Rustenburg Girls High and Forres and set behind old stone walls, the house is placed well back on its 1486sqm plot. The well-established garden and lawns immediately invite games of cricket and soccer. Pool parties, pizza parties and elegant dinners soon come to mind... all this before you approach the front door where a wrap-around veranda provides ample space for outdoor meals.

An imposing entrance hall welcomes you and your eye immediately travels up the Oregon pine staircase and is arrested on the landing by a beautiful stained glass window. There are five generously proportioned bedrooms and two tastefully modernised bathrooms. Some of the bedrooms have fireplaces and some lead on to a wrap-around balcony with bird's eye views.

Downstairs the reception rooms with their high ceilings are on a grand scale and flexible as to their use. There's a large study with a fireplace, a lounge with sliding doors to a patio and a covered braai area with a large pizza oven. A further room with a fireplace could be a formal lounge, a dedicated dining room or a family room. And then there's the kitchen. It's magnificent... a cook's delight and has ample room for a large table for family meals. Tucked under the stairs is a quirky cloakroom and storage space.

Extras include a guest flat, laundry room and solar powered geysers.

They say, "You never regret the purchases you make, only the ones you don't." Don't miss this one!
