Newly renovated, enchanting house with separate studio flat.
This property is perfectly located in Newlands Village in a quiet cul-de-sac half way up Palmboom Road and importantly is on the Canon River with an unusually beautiful aspect of the river and access to it.
As you enter the property you are met with a wonderful view of Table Mountain and Devils Peak. The house is North-facing, light and bright with a large aqua swimming pool set in a pretty English garden. The substantial veranda has a built in barbecue, perfect for entertaining. The veranda is warm and sunny in winter. To the South the house appears to be nestled in the forest and a wrap-around wooden deck overlooks the river which flows year-round and comes down dramatically in winter. On hot Summer days, the deck provides a cool retreat even when temperatures reach the upper 30 degrees.
The main house offers a double volume, open-plan living area with two lounges and a large cathedral-like window framing the established trees on the river banks which lends the feeling of being in a tree-house suspended in the forest. There is a central double-sided fireplace which warms the entire living area and offers a wonderful ambiance. The kitchen has a spacious farm-house feel with a substantial sit-around kitchen island to allow for fun social interaction with the cook! The cooking station has a dramatic hearth above it and caters for extraction to the outside. There is a neat scullery adjacent to the kitchen which houses the washing machine, tumble dryer and dish washer.
There are three large bedrooms with high ceilings and Knysna Timber ceiling fans. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with shower, toilet and double basins. The main bathroom is a family bathroom with a Dado Quartz free-standing bath a shower and basin. There is a separate guest WC. All bathrooms are fitted with Victorian Bathrooms fittings.
The main bedroom has French doors that open onto the veranda and swimming pool. The third bedroom has a large sliding door which opens onto the river deck.
The studio flat has its own deck over-looking the Canon River. It has a small kitchenette, en-suite bathroom and comfortably accommodates a queen bed, large desk and 3-seater couch.
The property can accommodate two cars parked outside in the driveway. There is space for three cars inside the property and an internal car-port for one car.
The property is equipped with a full solar back up system that caters for all needs other than the stove and swimming pool pump. The garden is fully irrigated and given the rich Newlands soil easy to nurture.
