COUNTRY LIVING AT ITS BEST - DURBANVILLE/PHILADELPHIA
Dreaming of living in the country side, but your Boss needs you in the city? Why not do both?! Here is an opportunity to make your dream come true and still live in the catchment area for the Durbanville schools. Or, should you choose Melkbosstrand Private school, you can take advantage of school transport with a pickup point conveniently close to the house.
Like the current owner said; “I have the lifestyle of a farmer without the responsibility. Every day I can drive to Durbanville, check on my sheep, look at my wheat and still arrive in town relaxed.”
The property is ideal for a big family including students studying from home and grand-parents living in. Alternatively, you can choose to benefit from the R7000 rental income currently achieved from the flatlet. The one-bedroom flat with its own private entrance, comprises of a bathroom, a big open-plan living area and a separate kitchen that walks out on a private courtyard.
When you enter the front gate, the impressive and elegant facade gives you the feeling you are at the ‘White House’. The house offers enough parking for all your guests when entertaining and a sparkling pool to keep the kids busy. When you enter the front door, you are welcomed by a farm-style interior which reminds of days when time moved at a slower pace.
Downstairs offers a light and airy open-plan lounge and dining area with large windows which invites the outdoors inside. The room boasts with an impressive fireplace. To the left of the staircase is a fourth bedroom with an en-suite which can also be used as a study. This room leads out to the double garage big enough to accommodate two cars, daddy’s hobbies and also a domestic’s room with a shower and toilet. To the right of the stairs, you will find a lovely kitchen where memories can be made which will last a lifetime. Big enough for a dining table as well as relaxing chairs at the dover stove for either husband or wife while deciding who will take the stove for the evening. Leading from there is a rustic braai room ideal for the Stormers vs Bulls braais leading out to the backyard for either the dog or the friend that needs to smoke. There is also a Wendy house with a cement floor as a store room.
Upstairs comprises of three large bedrooms with BIC and a family bathroom. The main bedroom has a spacious walk-in closet that still needs your help as there is plenty of potential for your dream bathroom.
