THIS im­pos­ing res­i­dence oc­cu­pies nearly 8 00m² on Ho­hen­hort Av­enue, Con­stan­tia Up­per, close to the bor­ders of the Ta­ble Moun­tain Na­tional Park. The ad­dress is just 4km from the con­ve­nience of the Con­stan­tia Vil­lage Shop­ping Cen­tre and has more than 1 700m² of liv­ing space. The prop­erty oc­cu­pies a north-fac­ing as­pect, which is quite un­usual for this sec­tion of Cape Town.

Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties’ area man­ager for the South­ern Sub­urbs, Howard Markham, says the house and ex­ten­sive gar­dens are well-se­cluded from the road and are shel­tered from any wind.

“The home it­self has been built to the high­est lux­ury stan­dards,” says Markham, “and has a num­ber of en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly fea­tures, such as an en­ergy-sav­ing home au­to­ma­tion sys­tem, a bore­hole-based ir­ri­ga­tion sys­tem, ecofriendly in­su­la­tion, a grey-wa­ter re­cy­cling plant and a Lil­liput sewer treat­ment plan. No de­tail has been over­looked in cre­at­ing an out­stand­ing mod­ern prop­erty that of­fers a num­ber of lux­ury fea­tures, yet re­mains gra­cious and wel­com­ing, a warm home for a large fam­ily to en­joy.”

The house fea­tures five en­suite bed­rooms, in­clud­ing a su­perb mas­ter suite with Ralph Lau­ren wall­pa­per, solid wal­nut cupboards in the dress­ing room, and a mar­ble-tiled bath­room with a dou­ble shower, sep­a­rate toi­let, un­der­floor heat­ing and air-con­di­tion­ing, as well as an en suite gym room and sauna. Two of the fam­ily bed­rooms have their own dress­ing rooms, while all the bath­rooms are fin­ished with Hans­grohe taps and heated towel rails.

There are a fur­ther two bed­rooms pro­vided for staff ac­com­mo­da­tion, as well as a cot­tage of­fer­ing guests two en-suite bed­rooms with their own kitchen and liv­ing area.

The gen­er­ous re­cep­tion rooms in­clude a large mar­ble-tiled en­trance hall with dou­ble stair­case, a for­mal din­ing room and lounge each with a gas fire­place, a sun­room and an in­for­mal liv­ing room with built-in TV cupboards. There is also an up­stairs “py­jama lounge” for com­fort­able fam­ily down-time, and a study with builtin cupboards and a solid wal­nut wine cel­lar. An ex­ten­sive en­ter­tain­ment room in­cludes an indoor stain­less steel braai and gas braai, as well as a built in TV lounge with TV, pro­jec­tion screen and black­out cur­tains and fold-back doors al­low­ing for ex­cel­lent indoor/out­door flow. This area also in­cludes a solid wood bar and bar-stools, plus built-in fridges.

The home’s kitchen is fin­ished in solid tim­ber with gran­ite and mar­ble tops, and fea­tures Miele ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing two in­te­grated fridges. There is a bar counter for in­for­mal din­ing and a sep­a­rate scullery/laun­dry-room.

Other lux­ury fea­tures in­clude a Rus­sound sound sys­tem, a cen­tral vac­uum sys­tem and un­der-tile heat­ing, as well as a wire­less com­puter net­work and two ADSL lines, plus a Pana­sonic PABX sys­tem for tele­phone traf­fic. There is a fully-au­to­mated Daikon air-con­di­tion­ing sys­tem, plus touch­screen pan­els to con­trol the home au­to­ma­tion sys­tem. Un­usu­ally tall doors and sash win­dows have been built to suit the build­ing’s ma­jes­tic di­men­sions. The award-win­ning in­dige­nous gar­den in­cludes a rim­flow heated swim­ming pool and au­to­mated sprin­kler sys­tem linked to the bore­hole. There is garag­ing for six ve­hi­cles.

Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties’ MD for the Western Cape metro re­gion, Lau­rie Wener, says the hitech se­cu­rity sys­tem is in keep­ing with the level of so­phis­ti­ca­tion and qual­ity of the prop­erty, and pro­vides peace of mind.

“The prop­erty is pro­tected by elec­tri­fied perime­ter fenc­ing, au­to­matic gates manned via a guard­house, and a CCTV cam­era net­work,” she says. The alarm sys­tem in­cludes ex­ter­nal and in­fra-red beams to monitor the ex­ten­sive grounds as well as the in­te­rior of the home. The out­door en­ter­tain­ment area is pro­tected by au­to­mated elec­tri­fied blinds.
