EAST LONDON’S LANDMARK RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY ON THE MARKET

Built in 1950 by an eccentric Italian, East London’s famous residential landmark, ‘The Castle’ in the sought after Bonnie Doon area, is on the market through Pam Golding Properties at R9.95 million.

Hanlie Bassingthwaighte, Pam Golding Properties’ area principal comments: ‘Situated in a prime location in one of East London’s most prestigious suburbs, this grand property, which is said to have been built on the ruins of a lost love, has an intriguing air of mystery which fascinates visitors to the area.”

Set on a large erf of 2702sqm, the buildings comprise a sizeable 1075sqm in total. The home incorporates seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, four reception rooms, fitted bar, study, wood, granite and chrome kitchen, laundry, scullery, store room and strong room. The well-secured property includes a large swimming pool, three garages and off-street parking for eight cars, as well as staff accommodation comprising one bedroom and one bathroom.

“This luxurious and extremely spacious home has been completely refurbished for a modern family, with minute attention to detail. An exquisitely detailed wrought iron balustrade graces the grand staircase, with a chapel-like painted dome above. The bar is crafted in sold Imbuia, reminding one of those found in the English countryside, while most rooms and the Juliet balconies which adorn the bedrooms have unspoilt scenic views over the suburb, Nahoon River and the sea,” adds Bassingthwaighte.
