Immaculately Restored Bo-Karoo Victorian Cottage In the heart of the Bo-Karoo lies the picturesque and peaceful town of Loxton – renowned for its endless open landscapes, tranquillity, tree-lined streets, water furrows, Die Rooi Granaat, the Moerdyk-designed church building, artists, authors and movies… like Jakhalsdans and The Last Tango. On Church Street you will find an aptly named cottage, Sunnyside, with its pear trees and Karoo cypresses of over a century old, surrounded by a beautiful soutbos hedge to ensure privacy. Sunnyside is beautifully restored - all the comforts found in modern homes were added without compromising its old world charm. The plot, in excess of 1 200 m2, has a lush garden with age-old pear trees giving a lovely atmosphere to the garden and shade to the stoep. With Loxton’s weekly leiwater, the garden and soutbos remain lush and in good condition. An old quaint cottage, also on the property, offers additional en-suite accommodation and storing place. The home’s large attic (solder) also offers safe storing place for old furniture and bric-ad-brac items. In summer the small plash pool with its cool water adds to the property’s charm. The main cottage boasts high ceilings and original Oregon pine flooring, lounge, big modern bathroom, two large bedrooms and a living area with open plan kitchen, Bollinger Stockholm coal stove and 5 meter glass doors that lead out to the stoep and its lovely view of the pear trees and the garden beyond . The house, circa 1905, is approximately 110 m2 (excluding outside building) and is the ideal retreat, retirement or family holiday home to escape to the peace and quiet of the Karoo.
