The property on offer is situated in Irene Farm Villages, Centurion.
Homes in estates are by default seen as prestigious which stems mostly from the status of estate living. These homes have a brief to which they have to adhere such as footprint and architecture.
The park like communal grounds is majestically stately, and certainly speaks of an estate. This home or abbey if you will has enjoyed hours of attention to detail. The manicured Victorian Garden sets the tone for the interior theme, replete with lavender and topiary hedges and shrubs.
Stepping into this home one would expect the valets and parlour maids to stand in wait, in their coat tails and white pinafores, of the lord and lady. The home begins with the obligatory entrance hallway and double doors of solid wood and high polish brass fittings. Off to the left one steps into a warm waiting room lounge which enjoys volumes of natural sunlight through wood framed full-length windows and French doors with brass fittings. The fire place sets the tone for the gatherings in cooler winter months. The theme of the time is also echoed in the fire place capping which is durable railway sleeper wood. The sparkling pool with its rock water feature feeding into the pool invites summer guests outdoors.
As was custom of homes of the period living areas like the drawing room or cigar lounge is a defined well-proportioned tranquil space luring the Chinese Zen garden and manicured surrounds indoors. Natural Sandstone tiling sets a classic undertone adding richness to the lounge and heavy foot traffic areas.
The kitchen is by all intent and purpose custom fitted with expert craftsmanship on display. There is nothing veneer clad here, solid wood and granite are set in an ergonomically user friendly layout. Space for major appliances does not detract from the clean lines of the kitchen and its overall theme. The scullery is where the Victorian theme continues and all the major appliances are moved here for convenience and aesthetic appeal.
The family sized dining room shares space with the informal lounge and meals begin with an aperitif at a custom solid wood built-in bar.
The study harks back to the Victorian era with its solid wood flooring.
In the well-proportioned master bedroom the valet and parlour maid has drawn the curtains to reveal the garden. Sandstone tiled flooring has made way for rich solid hardwood flooring. Period built-in cupboards are finished in rich Cherry wood and offer storage for crease free clothing. The Victorian en-suite bathroom cements the theme with a slight modern touch for functionality.
The remaining three bedrooms are equally well-proportioned with the same hardwood flooring and voluminous built-in cupboards.
The pool is hugged on three flanks of the home which has the obligatory high gloss red screed flooring and the wraparound patio.
Family vehicles are secured in an automated double lock-up garage.
