A somewhat interesting marriage of old and new. This house is located in the lower part of Villiersdorp. The front section of the house is a heritage home full of character dating back to somewhere between the mid to late 1800’s, showing off the original round wooden beams and reed ceilings of more than a century old.
As you enter the house you step into the lounge where you’ll immediately see the old world charm with its wooden floors and character door frames of yesteryear. The same character is maintained through most of the front section of the house. This section has 2 possible bedrooms, a bathroom and a bar area.
Heading to the newer section of the house which interestingly is Nutec, you walk into a dining area with a wooden sliding door which automatically invites you to the patio. But as you step into the dining room, you are immediately distracted; adding to the history of this house is the patented Swedish cast iron coal stove/wood burner with a side kettle dating back to 1895. One can only wonder what life was like so many years ago and who called this place home.
After being sidetracked, you’ll find the bright and sunny kitchen to the left of the dining room which offers more modern features.
To the right of the dining room is the informal lounge which also has access to the back garden. A small section of the lounge is currently set up as a home office. Of course, with 5 bedrooms there is plenty to choose from to have a dedicated office or two for remote working. Villiersdorp’s internet connections are of excellent standard for working remotely or even online schooling.
A separate enclosed area is perfect as a laundry.
Down the passage you’ll find the family bathroom, 2 bedrooms and a main bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The main bedroom as well as one of the bedrooms has access to the back garden.
The large garden is perfect for family fun and hosting get-togethers and you’ll still have ample space for a veggie garden. 2 Water tanks collect rain water for irrigation. A swimming pool for summer fun or just relaxing by the pool. Under cover parking and garage offers secure off street parking. The loft with access from the outside offers ample storage space or could be converted into a living area; the options are endless.
The house is ideal for family living. Or, for the investor or entrepreneur convert it back into a B&B by taking full advantage of its heritage.
