A grand slam for tennis lovers

A substantial home occupying a prime location in Newlands Upper, Cape Town, has come onto the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R14 million.  

Occupying an unusually large erf of over 2100sqm, the home’s other most notable feature is a floodlit tennis court – a rarity for this area.  PGP reports that the residence would make an ideal home for a family with children attending school in the Southern Suburbs, or for tennis lovers and those who enjoy entertaining all year round.

PGP agents Vickie Francis and Heather Turner say the property in Newlands Avenue has had just three owners in its lifetime.  “The home was designed by architect Charl Roux and was built in 1991,” they say.  “It has a timeless, elegant design with superior fittings and finishes throughout, and makes wonderful use of natural and reflected light.  It enjoys a very private location at the bottom of a pan-handle, creating a sense of tranquil remoteness, even though the property is in fact within easy reach of the city centre and numerous leading school and sports facilities.”

The accommodation includes four double bedrooms and three bathrooms, each with its own secluded courtyard garden.  The home’s spacious reception rooms are inter-leading, allowing for grand-scale entertaining that can flow from the indoors to a large covered patio overlooking the swimming pool and tennis court.  The modern kitchen is stylishly finished in wood and granite, and offers ample cupboard space, a breakfast nook, integrated dishwasher, eye-level oven and walk-in pantry.

Other features of the home include en-suite staff accommodation, a double garage, study and under-floor heating, as well as electric perimeter fencing.
