The property on offer is situated in Austerville, Durban - South Coast, Kwa-Zulu Natal
Rather than to speculate as to the age of this stately home rather focus on the attributes on offer. The unique architecture offers more than meets the eye. The front half-round porch will of course need that typical gleaming red screed flooring as a finishing and inviting touch. The value of the home should be a strong motivating factor to consider for renovating it to its former glory as there is still solid wood flooring in parts of the home.
Homes of this ear do have spacious living areas and lighting was always taken into account which should be utilized to accentuate the wood flooring and display pieces. The formal layout is also of major benefit to mirror the era with defined living areas and those impressive high ceilings.
The kitchen is spacious as was the norm of the time.
The dining room can be one of those elegant stately affairs with say a chandelier to accentuate the ambience of the room.
Two bedrooms on the ground floor are very spacious and sunny and serviced by a single bathroom.
The staircase should be a feature piece with the wood capping leading to the bedrooms on the first floor. If carpeting was lifted from the staircase one would in all likelihood find rich wood?
The master bedroom is very spacious and sunny.
The remaining bedroom is just as spacious and sunny.
These homes also has an enclosed back porch which, if memory serves where tea rooms.
The front porch becomes the typical balcony on the first floor.
There is also a flatlet set in the back of the home for extra income.
A double lock-up garage secures the family vehicles.
