This remarkable home has evolved from elegant Cape-Dutch origins and developed a unique and eclectic architectural style of its own! Situated just inside the boundary of the Irene Boomed Estate, it offers a unique opportunity for the work-from-home professional to benefit from the developing business corridor along Alexandra road, while enjoying the space and family lifestyle offered by Irene. Add a pair of income-generating flatlets with a proven track record, and this property becomes not only a home, but an investment!
The attractive northern façade of the main dwelling is dominated by a giant fir tree surrounded by a wooden deck. The front door opens into an entrance hall leading to the spacious interior that includes a formal lounge, an enormous triple-volume living room, a sunny study or home-office fitted with solid oak cupboards, and a sprawling farm-style kitchen with scullery and laundry. The living quarters include three bedrooms with built-in cupboards and two bathrooms, of which the main is en-suite.
The living room has glass sliding doors opening onto a covered patio surrounded by an established garden rich in bird-life, and offering a view of the sparkling swimming pool. With ample lawn to keep pets and kids happy, the garden also features a basketball practice area with hoop and backboard. The broad swathes of paving around the pool are perfect for sunbathing, or lighting up a barbecue on a Sunday afternoon!
The first of the flatlets is an upstairs studio consisting of a spacious living area with well-appointed kitchenette and bathroom, leading off a generous balcony with stunning views of the pool area. Although this unit is eminently lettable, it could equally well be used as a man-cave or entertainment room, with its granite-topped bar counter built from trademark Irene stone.
The entrance to the second flatlet is discreetly located around the side of the garage. Modern and stylish, the unit comprises a double-volume living area open-plan to the kitchen, a sizeable bedroom with built-in cupboards, and a bathroom. Finishes are up-market, with caesar-stone countertops in the kitchen and warm laminate flooring throughout. A glass sliding door in the living room opens to the garden and pool area.
Three garages with motorised roller doors take care of your motor vehicles, with plenty of paving in front where your guests can park. Other noteworthy features include a fibre connection installed in the main house, alarm systems, and an outside toilet for the gardener.
The Irene Boomed Estate is ideally situated for easy access to most of Gauteng, including Johannesburg, Pretoria, Krugersdorp, Lanseria Airport, Kempton Park and OR Tambo International. The Gautrain and its shuttle-bus service offers a more relaxed daily commute.
Other attractions include an array of shopping malls, top-end gyms, golf and sporting facili
