Overview

About the property

5 Bed, 3 Bath, heated pool, tennis court and surrounding table mountain views.

The house is located 10 minutes from the center of Cape Town, within easy reach of the airport, the waterfront and golf courses. It is only 15 minutes to the beaches of the Atlantic or Indian Oceans. The Property has uninterrupted views over Table Mountain and is a short walk from South Africa's International Cricket and Rugby stadiums and the famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The property can accommodate 8 adults, has a large heated pool and floodlit tennis court.

The property was formerly the 'Hungarian Consulate' and seems to have been designed for entertaining and as such is larger downstairs than up. The formal nature of the Entrance Hall, Sitting and Dining Rooms with their high ceilings, polished wood floors and fireplaces are in contrast to the relaxed style of the Family, Games and TV rooms to the rear of House. All of the reception rooms with the exception of the Bar are large.

The Style for the whole property is Colonial African, the Sitting room has heavy 'Buffalo Hide' furniture, with a Sofa and chairs set around the large fireplace. This cool room, with large sliding doors opening up onto the South side of the property, is an ideal place for Adults to relax. Double doors lead to the Bar. The Dining room has a long table and chairs to comfortably seat ten, a curved glass bay window, with window seat, looks out over the gardens and tennis court.

To the rear of the property are located the open plan Kitchen-Breakfast and Family room, the Games and Television Rooms. The kitchen is hand made with a wide expanse of solid wood work surfaces and plenty of storage space, a large breakfast table with benches and arm chairs is within easy reach. The kitchen has a dish washer, microwave and stove style cooker, whilst the utility room, located nearby, has a fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The windows of the kitchen open and concertina back completely, this coupled with the slate floors keeps the kitchen bright and airy.

The family room adjoining the kitchen is the hub of the house, its wide sliding doors and the 'glass wall' effect open into the pool garden.

The television room also has sliding doors onto the garden and is equipped with a Television, DVD player and satellite box. The Bar is located through the games room (with a pool table and 'table-football') towards the rear of the house, it has double doors onto the rear patio.

Upstairs there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom has views up over the mountain and an en-suite bathroom with large shower, freestanding bath and under floor heating. Of the other rooms the guest bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom whilst the two twin rooms and the smaller room share the family bathroom.

The house sits in an acre of mature gardens, surrounded by a high wall. The entrance to the property is through two large iron gates which open automatically onto a sweeping in-out drive. There is secure parking for several vehicles in the drive as well as a garage under the property for two cars.

In the South of the Garden is a Tennis court, with floodlights. To the North side of the property lies the Pool and outside entertainment areas. The large Swimming Pool (at least 30 feet long) is kept to a minimum temperature of around 27 degrees by an automatic heating system throughout the months of October until April.

​There is an area under a Pergola with a Table for outside dining, plenty of space around the Pool and garden to sunbath as well as a large patio area to the back of the property for relaxing in the evening.

Most areas of the Garden and several rooms in the house have fantastic unspoilt views of Table Mountain.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A large gem of a house in a peaceful suburb of Cape Town with magnificent views of the back of Table Mountain. Quick access to the Clifton beaches, Camps Bay restaurants and the V&A Waterfront. Great restaurants and shopping centre nearby if you don’t want to venture out too far each day. The house is huge and beautifully decorated throughout, but still feels very homely and comfortable. We made daily use of the swimming pool, barbeque and outside seating area and had a tennis coach come out to give us a few lessons on the court in the garden – a great way to start the day. We loved our stay and would highly recommend it for larger families or groups – there are numerous spacious communal areas so you will never feel on top of each other. We didn’t want to leave!
