We take you inside an elegant, free-standing home in Kloof which appeals to the sophisticated entertainer who seeks space, tranquillity and those all-important luxurious extras

Nestled in a quiet area not far from the beautiful Krantzkloof Nature Reserve and conveniently close to schools and all necessary amenities, this is a truly unique Upper Highway home – just waiting for you to make it your own.

Its magnificent setting of tall trees, sweeping lawns and landscaped gardens allow for a lovely outlook, and really gives you the feeling of living in the heart of the countryside. It also brings with it that much-needed serenity we all pursue in order to take a step back from the busy, everyday life most modern families tend to get caught up in today.

Tastefully decorated and completed with finishes of the finest quality throughout, this home offers a fluid floor plan, expansive spaces and a welcoming, airy ambience. The entrance hall flows into two separate lounges, and also situated on the ground floor is the dining-room and a fully equipped open plan kitchen – with Caesar stone counter tops and display cupboards with down lighting as well as counter lighting. There is also a very convenient laundry storage area with plenty of built-in cupboards.

Upstairs is where you will find four bedrooms as well as a large and cosy pyjama lounge and games area with snooker table. This section of the lounge could easily be converted into a fifth bedroom. The main bedroom offers an ample dressing room and an en suite bathroom with a wonderful double shower. The second bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a shower, while the two other bedrooms share a full family bathroom. The front rooms upstairs lead on to a veranda with an amazing view over the garden.

The extensive veranda downstairs, boasting a built-in braai, granite prep counters and a rinse bowl, perfect for entertaining. There is also a gazebo overlooking the sparkling pool, and a jungle gym in the garden to keep the little ones busy. And let’s not forget about the alluring wine cellar – which really has to be seen to be appreciated. All this, along with piped music throughout the home – including the gazebo and both verandas, allowing each area to choose to their individual taste – certainly makes large scale entertaining a pleasure.

Luxurious extras such as ducted air-conditioning, bathrooms with underfloor heating and gas fireplaces in two of the lounges as well as an open flame gas fireplace in the dining-room, make sure this home is equipped to handle both humid summers and cool winters.

The unsurpassed security features are very tastefully installed and gives peace of mind, while the beautiful domestic accommodation with a granite kitchen, as well as backup power supply from three large UPS units in the tiled double auto-garage, adds to the magic of this well-appointed home.

Designed by Peter Whitehouse and extremely well maintained by its owners, who simply love sunny afternoons on the patio watching their children swim and play soccer in the garden, this really is an exceptional property – in immaculate condition and with immense attention to detail.

Now that it’s on the market for the first time, we have no doubt that many happy memories will be carried forward!
