This incredible 561m² home in the established Pearl Valley at Val de Vie Estate, will instantly make you feel at home.
A water feature frames your walk to the front door, restoring a peaceful atmosphere with a hint of lavender lingering in the air. Upon opening the front door, you are greeted with oak flooring and lovely natural light coming from the atrium. Modern features are evident throughout the home, such as the keyless front door, while the design by Johan Malherbe ensures the home is warm and welcoming.
Just off the entrance you will find a large private office with dedicated high speed fiber line, making working from home a pleasure. A guest toilet keeps the space separate from the home, offering the wonderful balance between work and private life.
The large open plan living areas ensures quality time with the family with a natural flow between the living spaces. The well-designed kitchen has a French country aesthetic, with stunning cabinetry and a large center island. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee in the atrium with the lovely winter sun offering warm rays. A separate scullery with built-in pantry cupboards has a functional skylight making the most of the natural light and offers direct access to the garages – ideal for unpacking the groceries. Just off the scullery is the large laundry with access to a private service courtyard.
From the kitchen you overlook the dining space with doors opening to the undercover patio and atrium. The natural flow between the areas offers a great indoor-outdoor feel, with the lounges overlooking the garden. The formal lounge features a gas fireplace, which warms up the space, while the TV lounge leads to the garden and sunken braai area. An additional living area, which can be closed off from the open plan areas, is just off the formal lounge, ideal as a games room, music room or additional home office.
The outside living areas are well designed for entertaining with the dining area leading to the undercover patio with built-in braai. The lounge opens to a second patio area, once again offering space for the whole family to entertain. The pool, with energy saving pump, links the two patios. The stunning mountains of the Cape Winelands offer a lovely backdrop to the outside entertainment areas. Soak up the last of the day’s rays or stargaze from the sunken braai area. Many family memories will be made while toasting your marshmallows or simply enjoying the natural beauty all around.
The first bedroom is located on the ground floor and features a private entrance and access to a private section of the garden. A separate bathroom and coffee station makes this bedroom the ideal suite for guests. Once again making use of clever design, the under-stairs area has been converted into a separate storage space. As you head upstairs the landing has been designed to be used as a second office or a study nook.
The second and third bedrooms share a walk-in closet and full bathroom, while both have private balconies with incredible mountain views. The showstopping master bedroom is fit for royalty! The spacious master bedroom has space for a private lounge area with a gas fireplace and features a separate balcony with gorgeous mountain views. The large en-suite bathroom and walk-in dressing area are just another extra that makes this a home worth viewing.
The garage is any car lover’s dream with space for four vehicles and a golf cart.
