Everything about this property is big. Situated in Chartwell Country Estates, the sizeable, Freehold, 2.6Ha of land has the Klein Jukskei River on one boundary forming part of the Chartwell Conservancy and 3rd Road in Chartwell on another.
The large 550sqm family home, originally a 5-bed plus guest-suite home, has now been divided up with thoughtful modifications into three separate homes, whilst still giving owners the opportunity to return the home to its original state with the simple removal of some drywalls.
The “main” home comprises of a wrap around, covered veranda enclosing a spacious, double-volume open plan lounge and kitchen with double stack doors and a purposefully placed skylight for natural light. The modern cherry wood kitchen is complete with a lustrous center island, gas hob and double electric oven. There is a separate scullery and walk-in pantry. Adjacent to the living area is a formal dining room that could comfortably seat 10-12 people. A guest-suite with en-suite shower is alongside the dining room. One king size bedroom opens onto the wrap around patio and the main, also king-size bedroom, is upstairs with an en-suite ball and claw bathroom. The balcony overlooks the garden and pool. The main house has a gas geyser.
The single bedroom cottage (+-80sqm) has a private entrance off the driveway. The open plan living and kitchen has one of the many fireplaces in the home, centrally located to warm the entire cottage during winter. The outsize parquet floored bedroom has an en-suite and modern shower bathroom with a laundry room hidden neatly behind a cupboard door.
The two bedroom cottage (+-120sqm) is on the north extension of the home and again has a private entrance. The bedrooms and living rooms all share the same views of the garden and pool that the main home does. The living room easily accommodates a lounge and dining-room suite and also has a fireplace. This self contained home has a well appointed kitchen, a full bathroom and two sunny, double-sized, carpeted bedrooms. There is a third smaller room with built in cupboards that could be a child’s bedroom or a work from home study. This cottage comes with a gas geyser.
The immense, three bedroom cottage (+-170sqm) is separate from the main home and was originally stables, but which has been delightfully remodeled into a huge living area, separate kitchen and 3 bedrooms with 1 bathroom. This cottage comes with solar panels.
Rental potential for cottages only R20 000. More if you include “main home”.
The additional outbuildings include 2 staff accommodations, 2 storerooms and 3 garages with plenty of space to park tenants and visitors cars. There is also a borehole with a 5000L tank with a booster pump, 3 septic tanks and wiring for generator.
The rock pool and tennis court will keep family and visitors entertained for hours. The garden is well maintained and the immediate perimeter of the home secured with a wall on the street boundary and a palisade with industrial electric fence on the other sides. There is an alarm and cameras.
