South Africa's leading asset sales and services company, the Alliance Group,
will soon be selling a prime home at Marlbank, in the heart of the Vaal
River's Millionaire's Bend. With 55 kilometres of South Africa's most
dynamic and permanently navigable inland waterway on your doorstep, this is
a water-lover's dream home.
This extraordinary home, just over an hour from Johannesburg, is right on
the river's edge and offers the ultimate in exceptional and luxurious
detail, with a rare blend of opulence and tasteful livability. The property
is situated on 3.27 hectares with river frontage and rolling paddocks
housing stables with five horses. An exquisite home, it has approximately
1500 square meters under roof, including outbuildings, with five bedrooms
all with bathrooms en suite. Four of the bedrooms overlook the river and one
bedroom overlooks the stables and green-lawned estate.
Features of the home include a spectacular entertainment area and
wrap-around bar; as well as a lovely dining and sitting area with private
lounge and huge built-in gas fireplace. The open-plan dining room leads onto
a gourmet kitchen with an open serving area to the bar. Other features
include a scullery, glass cellar, study and a gym.
Amenities include the stables with tack room and lunging ring, a swimming
pool overlooking the river, a boathouse, intercom and fully-wired computer
network. There is also a borehole, alarm and security system - and last but
not least, beautiful landscaped gardens and magnificent staff quarters for
four staff members. The architects were Howard Johnston Architects.
There's no doubt that this is a fine home, ideal for getting away from it
all - plus a good investment. Warren Aronson of Alliance Group comments:
"The property offers an ideal opportunity to live in the country, but close
enough to work in the city''.
The auction will take place on site on the 30th October. The property can be
viewed on the 11th and 18th October.
