The interior renovation of this spacious family home is just about complete (completely habitable), but some of the exterior aspects await the new owners' personal touch.
This is a great opportunity to obtain a character home at a really great price. Owner has been relocated hence the attractive price.
Enter off the street into a "wet room" - typical of European homes, this is where visitors can leave their muddy shoes, coats and boots before entering the home - you also enter here from the attached garage.
Off the entrance you can enter into
1. the family room : spacious open plan room large enough for lounge chairs and dining table and chairs. A built in wood stove heats the entire area in the winter - many windows allow sunlight to brighten the area - open plan to the kitchen; or
2. a second more private lounge - this room is currently being used as an office but can be utilised as an office, bedroom, lounge, or whatever suites your needs. From this lounge to enter a passage which leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
Kitchen: many built in cupboards and storage space, sunny and bright and open plan to the family room (stove not included)
Main Bedroom : has en-suite bathroom (large shower, loo and basin) and built in cupboards
Second large bedroom - built in cupboards
Third bedroom - built in cupboards
Family bathroom with bath, large shower, basin and loo
A staircase leads up to a 4th Bedroom or lounge / entertainment area - off this room you exit onto the roof area from where you have a most magnificent view of the surrounding mountains - a peaceful spot for your morning coffee or sundowners. The roof area is been concreted so it is very solid (strong enough to carry heavy furniture etc.
The exterior walls for a double garage and cottage have been constructed - the roof and garage doors have yet to be completed.
A 7 x 4 m swimming pool awaits completion - plans have been approved for a roof over the pool. The wall which separates the pool from the garden is in place - you can either leave the openings to the garden as is, or install French or stack doors so that the entire pool area can be enclosed so that you may swim all year round.
The rear garden is spacious - many fruit trees and vegetables have been planted
2 x 10 000 liter Jojo water tanks are installed - these are filled by rain water
A burglar alarm
Polyurethane bars on all opening windows
Trellidors on all doors
State of the art block out blinds on all windows (no curtains required)
The house is entirely habitable and functional - the exterior requires completion but this is not a huge project. It is estimated that the roof over the garage will cost about R30 000 - the roof over the pool area about R40 000 (assuming you wish to close this and assuming you follow the owner's plan to use polyurethane sheets rather than solid sheets).
Paving stones and sand is on site so this is included in the price.
The plan for the cottage includes a kitchenette and shower, loo and basin - these items will be for your own account.
This is an exciting project and a great opportunity at a very good price!
Please note that the stated m2 of the house includes the garages and proposed cottage.
