Modern living and views all the way to Stellenbosch

A magnificent modern home has come onto the market in a prime location in Upper Constantia – prestigious Belair Drive.  

Occupying over 9000sqm of land, the eye-catching home is equipped for luxurious family living and entertaining, and enjoys views across the Constantia Valley and False Bay, all the way to the Stellenbosch mountains.  The property is on the market at R18.75 million, exclusively through Pam Golding Properties.

PGP’s area manager Howard Markham says the home is just 12 years old, and was designed by architect Richard White with extensive use of glass to maximise the panoramic views.  A lift provides access between the three storeys, making the home accessible to those with mobility challenges.  “There is ample accommodation for family and friends,” says Markham, “with a total of seven bedrooms, all of them en suite and with built-in cupboards and heated towel rails.  Two of these rooms are located on the ground floor and open onto the garden, while two of the rooms on the upper level open onto a private patio.  The main suite has its own large dressing room and is equipped with air-conditioning and a gas fireplace for all-year-round comfort.”

The home’s entertainment areas are equally extensive, incorporating both formal and informal spaces with seamless flow between them.  The reception rooms include a formal lounge and dining room as well as a more relaxed family lounge and dining area, a fully-equipped home theatre room and a large games room.  A fitted study provides the ideal work-from-home environment, including sufficient space for a modest boardroom table, and a private balcony.  The gourmet kitchen is equipped with granite counter-tops and top-of-the-range appliances, including a double under-counter oven and gas hob.  The kitchen has a separate scullery and ironing room, and is open plan to the family dining area.

The extensive gardens include a black fibre-glass swimming pool, and are watered from a borehole via an irrigation system.  The property is protected by multiple levels of security, including an electric perimeter fence, electronic beams, alarm system and laminated windows.  Other features include triple staff quarters with their own lounge, both interior and external water features, and garaging for eight vehicles.

Markham says this would be the ideal home for an executive and their family, especially those who entertain frequently.  “This is the height of modern luxury living, set within a location steeped in rural tranquillity,” he says.  “Property in Constantia is always a blue chip investment, and this section in particular is one of the suburb’s most sought-after addresses.  The convenient central location, ease of access to all amenities, and magnificent surrounds of mountains and vineyards, will ensure this area never loses its high appeal.”
