This suburban paradise is nestled in tranquil manicured gardens and has extraordinary views as far as the eye can see, perfect to enjoy a sundowner from the elevated north facing balcony. There are many beautiful character features that have been kept with the modernisation of this home such as the gleaming parquet floors, lead stained glass and the wooden architectural features such as the window frames and wooden doors.
The home is in immaculate condition and the ground floor offers a lovely entrance hall with the stairs leading to the second level, an open plan living and dining room with interleading doors to a large kitchen with ample space for all your culinary needs. Out the back we have an entertainment area covered by the wooden balcony which in turn overlooks the sparkling pool and lush, established gardens. The self contained granny flat is off of the entertainment area and consists of a sizable room with a full bathroom.
Upstairs we have 3 large bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and the fantastic main en-suite which also overlooks the north of Johannesburg. There is a family room upstairs which leads out onto the balcony.
The property has garaging for two vehicles and the one garage has a drive through option for additional off street parking. There is also a private office next to the garages and the property has additional features such as a diesel generator and a heated pool.
