We bring to market a ‘picture perfect’ property in the best position in sought after Glenferness. This architect-designed, mediterranean-style equestrian property is situated in a prime position, on 2,25ha.
With 6 stables, two shady paddocks and a 60 x 40m sand arena, this is a must-see for horse lovers looking for privacy, prime location and a secure investment.
The homestead comprises four bedrooms (two en-suite), three lock-up garages with direct access to the house, and four open garages, set in a landscaped, indigenous garden, with in-situ irrigation and mature trees. An exceptional ecological garden features grassland, wetland, water feature and forested areas, creating diverse habitats for abundant wild- and bird-life.
A charming and sizeable vegetable garden adjacent to the house, is enclosed by a stone wall.
A spacious, open plan entrance hall / lobby encompasses an informal TV lounge, dining and kitchen area, leading to a double volume formal lounge, study, guest cloakroom and a large basement wine cellar. An entertainer’s patio, fully under-roof, runs the length of the house, fronted by the pool.
A compact chef’s kitchen with concealed scullery is backed up by an outside pantry, with ample shelving and additional refrigeration.
Two (children’s) bedrooms share a double bathroom and a spacious work-station. A self contained guest suite comprising bedroom, lounge and bathroom has access to the lock-up garages. The master suite has a walk through dressing room with ample cupboards, leading to a spacious double bathroom with double vanities and a double shower. All the bedrooms feature doors leading onto patio / garden areas.
The equestrian dream starts with an immaculately maintained sand, trotting track of 700m. on the perimeter of the property, a 60mX40m sand arena, six brick stables,a secure tack room, covered horse box shed, and wash bay.
A free standing cottage adjacent to the stable complex offers staff accommodation- two bedrooms, open plan living and kitchen, with a covered patio entrance. A third staff bedroom and bathroom are part of the stable complex.
Security features include a high street front wall embedded with steel sharks-teeth, a CCTV Camera at the entrance gate and an infrared beam.
Boundaries with neighbours have secure palisade and electric fencing.
Glenferness is building an excellent security infrastructure via a proactive Resident’s Association and has monitored street cameras at all intersections. It has an excellent broadband infrastructure and cellular connectivity.
It is in close proximity to several private schools - from pre-primary to tertiary - and is close to shopping amenities as well as major retail precincts at Fourways, Mall of Africa and Woodmead.
The small enclave of Glenferness falls outside the UDB (urban development boundary) and is one of few suburbs offering large erven with limited through traffic, yet close proximity to major highways. This, coupled with its north and east aspects, river frontage and unspoilt, rural character make it unique.
Current owners are retiring to farm and reasonable offers from viewings by appointment, will be considered.
