A spectacular modern family home has come onto the market in the Boland town of Somerset West.  The property is situated in the sought-after suburb of Monte Sereno – known for its upmarket family homes.  “Knightsview” is so named for its spectacular views, which encompass the entire sweep of False Bay from Rooi Els to Cape Point (whose lighthouse beams can be seen from the home at night).  Boasting every conceivable luxury finish and a number of hi-tech modern fittings, the home is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R19.8 million.
Knightsview is built on a sloping plot of 2500sqm, which has been sculpted into three split levels rising over 12m to road-level.  The home offers over 1000sqm of living space, including five en suite bedrooms and six spacious reception rooms, as well as 167sqm of patio space.  Attention to detail is evident in every room, from the high gloss imported Italian tiles, Miele appliances and walk-in fridge in the kitchen, to the carefully chosen statues and sculptures which will be sold with the home.  Numerous walls of glass maximise the spectacular views and create a sense of light and space.  They also create a feeling of connection between the home’s interior and its large landscaped garden, which includes numerous established shrubs as well as a formal herb garden.
The home’s hi-tech features include a state-of-the-art home automation system, controlled via two touch-screen panels.  This system operates everything from the lighting, heating and air-conditioning to the Nils central sound environment, which uses subtly concealed speakers to create a free flow of sound between the different parts of the home.  Also linked to this system are the home’s security features, including a burglar alarm and eight security cameras with direct links to every TV and computer point in the house.  The property is further protected by a solid brick perimeter wall with electric fencing.
Other luxury features include two swimming pools, one of them heated, a private cinema, Jacuzzi and sauna, wine cellar and bar, fully-equipped gym room with Kettler home exercise equipment, a billiard room, walk-in safe and roof-top putting green.  The property also boasts automated garaging for three vehicles, as well as staff accommodation.
PGP’s area manager for Somerset West, Linda Killick, says the home could be suitable for corporate use and may be of interest to foreign investors.  But, she says, it is most ideal for a large modern family.  “This is the ideal home in which to raise a family, with every possible luxury feature and entertainment area,” says Killick.  “It is also well-placed for top local schools, with private schools such as Somerset House and Somerset College situated within a 10km radius.  It is just 2km from the Somerset West CBD with its excellent restaurants, and only 4km from extensive shopping opportunities at Somerset Mall.  For golf lovers, there are three golf courses within a 6km radius, while families with older children will enjoy the proximity to Stellenbosch University, just a 15 minute drive away.”
PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg regions, Annien Borg, says this is one of the most prestigious properties to come onto the market in Somerset West in some time.  “Knightsview is no ordinary home, even when assessed at top-end standards.  It has an absolutely superb location with outstanding views and so many high-quality features and finishes that it is truly a home fit for a modern-day knight.  There are not many homes which offer two swimming pools or their own rooftop putting green!  We believe that this price tag represents very good value for what the property offers, and feel sure that this will make an ideal home for the discerning buyer who acquires it.””
