Sub­stan­tially so­phis­ti­cated: Your private perch in par­adise

Southern Real Estate Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

Some­times words are not enough to de­scribe a prop­erty as breath­tak­ing as this. Beau­ti­ful and spa­cious inside, 121 Polo Prince Drive comes with grandstand views of the great out­doors, and is as close as it gets to a slice of par­adise that’s within com­mut­ing dis­tance to the big hus­tle. Lo­cated in the semi-rural set­ting of up­mar­ket Al­fris­ton, this six-bed­room brick beauty is per­fect for those who would like to leave town at the end of the day to their own private re­treat - but can’t wait to re­join the town­ies back in the morn­ing! Set at the end of a long drive­way on a rolling 5010 square me­tres sec­tion, this sub­stan­tial and stylish ex­ec­u­tive home in­cludes all con­ve­niences for the busy fam­ily. A two-bed­room unit at­tached to the main dwelling adds fur­ther to the ap­peal of this prop­erty. It’s ideal for ex­tended fam­ily or teenagers who want their own space, or could be utilised as a home and in­come. It has its own sin­gle garage, while the main home en­joys an in­ter­nal ac­cess dou­ble garage. There’s also off-street park­ing for ex­tra ve­hi­cles or the fam­ily boat. This es­tate is not your stan­dard-is­sue land­scaped gar­den, it also in­cludes a cou­ple of pad­docks to raise a few sheep for the kids. The main en­trance leads you into a large, el­e­gant foyer. To the left is a for­mal lounge with high stud ceil­ing, a cathe­dral-type win­dow on one side, and a row of sweep­ing win­dows on the other that stream in all the light you could pos­si­bly want. From here you move on to the large open plan din­ing area, a semi-open plan blue-themed kitchen that’s a state­ment in style, and a spa­cious in­for­mal liv­ing area that’s private and opens via huge bi-fold doors to the fully fenced en­ter­tain­ment area out back. With a cov­ered pa­tio that’s the ul­ti­mate in al­fresco din­ing, land­scaped gar­dens, ma­ture trees and un­bro­ken views, this prop­erty is per­fect for sum­mer liv­ing. There’s a study down­stairs that faces the yard so you can keep an eye on the front of the home. The mas­ter bed­room down­stairs comes with a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite. All other bed­rooms have been po­si­tioned for ex­cel­lent views and day­light. In to­tal there are three bath­rooms and four toi­lets. While lo­cated far from the madding crowd, don’t for a mo­ment think there aren’t any city ameni­ties. There’s town sup­ply wa­ter and a bio-cy­cle sew­er­age sys­tem. Plus there are ex­cel­lent schools and re­tail ther­apy close by. OPEN HOME: Sun­days 1pm-1.40pm. AUC­TION: On site, Satur­day, De­cem­ber 8, 2007 at 12 noon, open one hour prior.
