This gorgeous family home has a Provencal farmhouse feel – well positioned on the 6827m2 stand, the lush, well-established garden shows the fine hand and the owner’s green fingers in the well-laid out, terraced garden with its mature trees and shrubs, a formal rose garden, well-tended vegetable and herb garden, and rolling lawns bordered by finely-gravelled pathways and lush border planting with pots of tumbling, colourful flowers.
One enters the home to be met by solid Rhodesian teak parquet flooring in the entrance hall, leading down two stairs to the spacious formal lounge with wooden windows and doors. A statement fireplace combats those chilly winter evenings. Two sets of French doors open onto the covered patio with a trickling water feature bringing the outside in. The covered patio is large, featuring a built-in gas braai and built in cupboards and worktops, leading through gently curved arches to the pool and verdant garden. The French Country family-styled kitchen and dining has a wonderful feel; beautifully appointed, with a large gas hob and oven, granite tops, a central island, and a scullery out of sight, with a door leading to the 4 garages. The back door leads onto an archetypal gravelled Provencal courtyard, with a water feature, lemon tree, herb garden and al fresco dining – perfect for those long Sunday lunches! Lavender abounds, and benches overlook the tennis court which has it’s own outside cloakroom.
Leading off the dining room is the family room - character-filled - as it is a converted domed wine cellar with wall-to-ceiling exposed facebrick. This leads onto a study with cosy wood-burning fireplace which in turn, opens out through french doors to the covered entertainment area. The 4 bedrooms are spacious, carpeted, with built-in cupboards and wooden cottage pane windows. The main suite has a calm elegance, with lovely views of the garden. A walk-in dressing room is followed by the en-suite bathroom with a double vanity, shower, and a heavenly slipper bath!
4 garages and staff quarters complete the property. A Jojo, a borehole (with potable water!), and a generator gives peace of mind. The property is well-secured, with electric fencing, CCTV, intercom and an alarm, etc. This home is situated in a prime street in Bryanston, with easy access to the highway, close to many schools (both government and private), shopping centres, restaurants, places of worship and the Sandton, Rivonia and Fourways business hubs.
This is home to nurture and grow a family: secure, with a quiet elegance and loads of character, in beautiful surrounds, with a prime Bryanston address. Call me to set up an appointment to view this property today!
