This awe-inspiring architect-designed, interior-decorated home exudes charm and sophistication: from the circular cobble stone driveway, to the moment you enter the awe-inspiring "Great Room" with it's high, vaulted ceilings and front- & rear-panel folding glass doors, and on to the spacious bedrooms with Plantation-style shutter doors that open up to the most incredible views across the estate.

When the front and rear glass panel doors are open, the entire "Great Room" space is unified - from the back porch with its views of the indigenous landscaped gardens, to the front deck with rim-flow pool - that has sweeping views over the entire estate and the wildlife and horses that roam free therein. The kitchen has a separate scullery and pantry, separate from the "Great Room". 

The bedrooms are separated into main and guest wings, flowing off the "Great Room" - to the east and west - and offering complete privacy to both homeowner and guest, alike.

The security system is sophisticated, incorporating double exterior doors with lockable shutters for ventilation in bedrooms, and dual area interior and exterior alarm-system on the exterior verandas. There is also night-time security lighting. The garden is landscaped, with a timed-irrigation system inclusive of low maintenance trees, plants and lawn. There is a borehole in the estate, and the home uses both borehole and municipal water.
