Nat King Cole sang: “When I fall in love, it will be forever…”.
This is what you think when you enter this hidden gem nestled in a very secure, private cluster in the heart of Brooklyn. Your new home is waiting to be discovered by you and loved forever.
When you walk through the front door you get the sense that you are hugged by history, passion, and a brand-new beginning simultaneously – a gift waiting to be unwrapped. All the walls are lined with masterpieces and the rooms filled with antiques that you wish could stay when you move in. The parquet-covered hardwood floors are warm and cool at the same time and radiate a sense of durability.
Your eyes are drawn to the sunny family room to the right where you can imagine a couple sipping on an ice-cold beverage, sharing their thoughts of the future, or children doing their homework or playing games. Just outside the door of the family room to the front of the garden is a very inviting, sparkling pool for those hot summer days.
From the front door looking straight ahead, you find a small entrance hall and beyond that a spacious open-plan lounge and a dining room where the family can share stories about their day while enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal, a warm drink or a glass of wine.
The homely kitchen, where many special meals will be prepared for family and friends, is to the left. It has a separate pantry and a laundry- and scullery area which leaves the kitchen open for its most important function: to prepare delicious meals.
Down the passage is the study filled with stories and advice on shelves, specifically placed there from end to end for this purpose. Under the staircase hiding in its little corner is a guest bathroom for those days when the house will be packed with family and friends you could not wait to invite into your special home.
Moving up the stairs you find 3 spacious, sunny bedrooms. The main bedroom has a walk-in closet and a very neat, full, en-suite bathroom, as well as its own private balcony where a couple can chat till late or just sit and take in the day turning into peaceful, quiet dusk and then evening. The other 2 bedrooms are serviced by a neat bathroom with a bath, shower, toilet, and basin.
Downstairs and at the end of the house is a very spacious guest bedroom with a kitchenette and an en-suite bathroom. It can be used by young adult children, elderly parents or it can even be rented out as it has its own entrance and small garden.
The garden is neatly covered intermittently with paving blocks and the home has a beautiful slate tiled roof, a spacious double garage, and burglar bars on all the windows.
This double-storey, 395m² home is on a 527m²stand and is situated in a private estate, with only 4 homes, in Brooklyn. It is close to the Brooklyn Mall, prestigious schools, and the University of Pretoria. It is close to the main arterial roads.
