Riverside Cottage

If a bit of quirky combined with traditional and a wee bit of modern is your style, this could very well be the ideal house for you.

In the same traditional style as most farm houses were built back in the day, this house has 3 doors into the house from the front stoep. Two of the doors are identical with some stained glass trim on either side of the stoep.

The left wing has a bedroom, bathroom and an extra room which could be a lounge or office or perhaps be converted into a kitchenette. The right wing has an array of rooms including a library or study, a kitchenette, bathroom and bedrooms. Both sections have direct access into the house.

On entering the double French doors of the front stoep, which is the third door, you enter the passage which leads to the lounge. The lounge has a lovely large fireplace which I’m sure is the heart of the house in winter. From the lounge you could wander into the different sections of the house, including the right wing. If you walk straight on through the lounge, you are welcomed by the large open plan dining and kitchen area. I am pretty sure this becomes the heart of the house during the longer, warmer summer days. When you open the stack doors you bring the outdoors in, the perfect place to entertain large or extended families. The huge garden with river frontage and a farm as your neighbour, what better place than this to host evening garden parties during the summer months?

From the kitchen you head off to another few rooms and bathroom. Here you'll see a courtyard with an outdoor shower which I think is only accessible from the outside, hence the name. I am sure you are scratching your head in confusion. I am!. I did say quirky, remember!?

The separate loft area which is accessible via stairs located on the outside offers another bedroom and bathroom. And going up those stairs you can’t help but stop on the deck to admire the breathtaking views of the farms and mountains. An outbuilding, separate from the main building is ideal for storage or a workshop.

The house and garden in its current condition does need some TLC but one can easily see the amazing potential it has to offer. It could be a magnificent home for a larger family and when empty nest syndrome kicks in, it can become an income generating property as a B&B or guest house or just dive straight into generating income.

Villiersdorp is particularly beautiful and tranquil due to the many fruit farms. It offers a 9 hole Golf course which is situated next to the Theewaterskloof Dam. The Theewaterskloof Dam covers an area of 5 100ha with a capacity of 483 million cubic meter, when it is full. The Theewaters Sport Club is very popular for its sailing and camping. The Mediterranean climate allows for many outdoor activities.

Caledon Casino as well as Franschhoek is 25km away. Hermanus, Worcester, Paarl, Somerset West , Breedekloof, Montague and Robertson are a stones through from Villiersdorp.

The town boasts excellent Primary and High Schools
