Ever wondered what it feels like to live in a Palace? Well…….. Wonder no more!
This Gem of a property has come on the market and will sell to the discerning individuals who know and appreciate ultimate quality, style and finesse. It is sold fully furnished!
Garden and Outside
As you arrive at the second of two automated gates, your eyes fixate upon the wonderful Tuscan architecture with its warm tones and “Gamma-Zenith” clad plaster work, bespoke gates, balustrades, and palm trees accompanied by lush cycads all cocooned in a practical and seemingly simple manner. High perimeter walls guard against wind and winter frost assuring an evergreen lawn and garden throughout the year. Water is supplied via strong borehole to an irrigation system and the whole property can be watershed within minutes.
Approaching the rear, classic Spanish-style gates enclose the pool area as additional safety for young children and privacy of pets. The 100,000-lt. pool is heated and features additional pumps for jets and fountain features along with pool lighting which can strobe and pulsate as required. Outside shower facilities are also available. Additionally, there is a self-starting/self-charging 23KVa backup generator capable of handling all load shedding inadequacies. For your live-in domestic worker, there is a dedicated staff quarter which includes bedroom and bathroom with shower, basin and toilet.
Garaging and Parking
The automated double “Saligna” doors open up to accommodate five large vehicles (Ford Ranger/Toyota Fortuner type) with ample space left over to open all doors without encroaching on one another. The garage also offers a built-in kitchenette if you don’t want to mess in the Gourmet Kitchen and a designated workshop with ample storage and work top space to tackle fairly large DIY projects.
