A warm welcome!
When I think of true Tuscan architecture specific thoughts and feelings arise. This 'Podere' falls in line with all the secrets and love that go into a True Tuscan Villa.
- Built with Local Stone and use of Natural Materials
- Terracotta and Sunbaked Colours
- An exterior feature of thick stone walls blends harmoniously with nature
- Surrounded by Romantic Landscapes and Beautiful views
- Vineyards of Sangiovese, Cab Sav, Viognier, Malbec, and Olive Groves
- Bold columns and Arches of Tuscan Order.
The main entrance is grand with an infiltration of natural light through large arched windows. The wrought Iron staircase spirals flowingly and is most certainly a feature of true Tuscan style.
During the day, the living room sliding doors open fully. to relax and admire your vineyards and Olive Grove. By nightfall, the fireplace is the beating heart of the living room.
The living room is separate but flows smoothly into the tv room. The tv room opens to a pool-facing loggia (South African equivalent to a porch/patio), and it also leads into the open-plan dining room/kitchen. In true Tuscan taste, a Mural Backsplash is the focal point in this working-size kitchen. Implements are on display and there is no doubt this kitchen is lived-in, well-used, and well-loved. A built-in Pizza Oven seals the deals for a full Italian experience. I can just imagine an evening, enjoying personally harvested Red wine and the last shavings of Pecorino being finished off the cheeseboard whilst family and friends snack on Olives from your Grove. Or waking up to the smell of freshly baked Biscotti di Prato and the familiar smell of coffee brewing throughout the day for a beloved espresso. Rustic Tuscan aromas are simply special. The kitchen is also equipped with a separate scullery.
There are 2 bedrooms with- Full en-suite bathrooms downstairs, each with their own patio and spectacular views all the way to table mountain.
Upstairs is the main en-suite with a full bathroom that is bold and spacious with double vanities. There are panoramic views and a "Every morning coffee" on the large balcony with Simonsig is considered a date. The second bedroom - en suite with shower room and balcony overlook the pool and Table Mountain.
Below ground is an impressive well aerated, dark, and cool Wine Cellar. Words cannot describe the magic down here and you truly need to see it to feel it. The Outbuilding Winery includes the fermentation cellar, maturation cellar and storage. Labeling and Bottling are also accommodated here. The office area is above the winery. (It is large in square meterage and can comfortably be converted into another cottage if desired.
The infinity pool is surrounded by the Pasta room (Original use- Flatlet) on one side, kitchen on the other, and a festive covered outdoor braai area/fireplace aka "The Boardroom."
There is a separate 2-bedroom cottage with an open plan living room, dining area, kitchen, and a private braai patio.
There is a laundry room to cater for the Guesthouse room turnover.
