PGP agent Angela le Roux says the home is steeped in Italian influences, from its wrought iron entrance gates and cobbled brick entrance courtyard with central water feature, to the chapel-like tower which welcomes visitors as they enter the home. Gothic windows, ornate chandeliers and high ceilings combine with cosy nooks and hearth-like fireplaces to create an atmosphere of a luxurious yet intimate country villa.
 
“The home is designed around a central undercover patio which overlooks the extensive park-like gardens with swimming pool and established trees,” says le Roux. “On one side of this patio is the main family wing, containing open-plan informal living areas and a separate bedroom wing with seven luxurious en-suite bedrooms. Two of these are located upstairs with their own private balconies, making them ideal for guest use. The spacious Shaker-style eat-in kitchen has a central island and ample cabinetry, as well as a separate laundry and scullery.”
 
On the other side of the central patio lies the extensive entertainment wing, which includes a substantial fireplace, enormous lounge and separate bar-kitchenette. There is easy flow from the indoors to the outdoor areas, creating an ideal environment for entertaining, all year round.

Linking the two wings is a library with built-in bookshelves and a basement cellar.
 
Additional buildings on the property include a three-bedroomed staff cottage located at the bottom of the garden, as well as a separate work-from-home office with its own entrance, also accessible via the main house. Garaging is provided for four vehicles, with ample space for additional off-street parking.
 
Other notable features of the property include central air-conditioning, under-floor heating and wiring for surround sound and WiFi, as well as a separate rainwater piping system, grey and black sewerage systems, and both solar and heat pump circular hot water system.
 
“This home would be ideally suited to the large family that enjoys entertaining on a regular basis and/or on a grand scale,” says le Roux. “The convenient location is just 10 to 15 minutes away from major amenities at Tyger Valley Centre, and is easily accessible via major roads. It is a truly unique home that will appeal to those with a love of Italian flair and style.”
