Golden opportunity in Golden Hill

One of the largest suburban residential properties in Somerset West has come onto the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties.  

Set on over 8500sqm, the family home in Golden Hill lies adjacent to the Helderberg Nature Reserve, and commands sweeping views across the green belt as well as the neighbouring vineyards.  The property is priced at R21.8 million.

PGP’s area manager for Somerset West, Linda Killick, says Golden Hill is one of the most prestigious suburbs in the town, renowned for its upmarket homes set in large grounds, and for the panoramic views accorded by its elevated location.  The suburb lies on the lower slopes of the Helderberg mountain, close to the Erinvale golf estate and acclaimed Vergelegen wine estate.  “This particular property occupies an unusually large erf, even for this area,” says Killick, “and is located on the very back line of Hillcrest Road, immediately adjacent to the reserve.  As a result, it creates an impression of living in the countryside, despite being centrally located on the suburban fringe of Somerset West.”

Killick says despite the enormous grounds and sizable house, with over 1000sqm of living space, the property remains first and foremost a warm family home.  “The current owners have raised a family of active, sports-minded children on this property,” she says, “and we anticipate that a similar profile of buyer will want to purchase it, because of the healthy outdoor lifestyle on offer.  The home offers every luxury and modern convenience, and has ample space for entertaining and accommodating guests in comfort.  But above all, it is a welcoming place for a family to enjoy together, in a beautiful environment located close to leading schools.”

The home has five en-suite bedrooms as well as a separate guest cottage, providing visitors with comfort and privacy.  The five substantial reception areas flow into a sprawling landscaped garden teeming with birdlife, which is watered by an automatic irrigation system using a borehole and rain-water tanks.  The secluded garden contains a swimming pool, Koi pond and floodlit tennis court, all overlooked by several sheltered patios, ideal for outdoor entertaining.

Quality craftsmanship is reflected throughout the home’s interiors, with features including hand-crafted wrought iron gates, a custom-made Brazilian Mahogany bar, marble bathroom counters and gleaming wooden floors.  The kitchen has granite surfaces and contains a beautiful Godin stove, as well as sash windows overlooking the nature reserve.  A billiard room with full-size table is included in the asking price. Staff quarters, under-tile heating and a triple automated garage with direct access complete the picture of a stylish yet comfortable family home.
