Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A NORTH-FAC­ING Tus­canstyle home, lo­cated in Sil­vertree Es­tate in Con­stan­tia, is be­ing brought to auc­tion by Raw­son Auc­tions Western Cape at the end of June.

The house has four bed­rooms, four bath­rooms, two kitchens and two open-plan lounge/din­ing room ar­eas, each com­pris­ing up­stairs and down­stairs sec­tions.

“Each floor has its own kitchen, din­ing and liv­ing ar­eas, and a pa­tio and en­ter­tain­ment area,” says Tanya Jo­vanovski, fran­chisee of Raw­son Auc­tions Western Cape.

“The con­fig­u­ra­tion of the rooms makes this prop­erty ideal as a fam­ily home, a du­al­liv­ing space, work-from-home premises or two sep­a­rate, twobed­roomed flats.”

Jo­vanovski says the down­stairs sec­tion com­prises a master bed­room, with hand­crafted wooden cup­boards and an en-suite bath­room, a sec­ond bed­room and bath­room, a store­room, an open-plan kitchen/din­ing room, and a lounge that leads to the pa­tio and gar­den. The kitchen is equipped with solid cherry wood cup­boards with gran­ite coun­ter­tops, and has a sep­a­rate scullery.

Up­stairs there is an­other main bed­room with built-in cup­boards, a pri­vate bal­cony and an en-suite bath­room with bath and shower. The fourth bed­room, with built-in cup­boards, is also on this level, and there is a bal­cony that wraps around the side of the house and leads to the liv­ing area. A sec­ond bath­room is also lo­cated on this floor, and an open-plan kitchen/din­ing room and lounge. The lounge opens on to a bal­cony, which is also used as a braai and en­ter­tain­ment area.

The prop­erty has a well­main­tained gar­den and dou­ble garage with di­rect en­trance to the house.

Sit­u­ated at 16 Har­row Lane in the gated Sil­vertree Es­tate, the prop­erty is pro­tected by 24-hour se­cu­rity.

Jo­vanovski de­scribes the house as “ma­jes­tic”. “It’s what you would ex­pect from a Con­stan­tia home, and more,” she says. “Beau­ti­ful ar­chi­tec­ture com­ple­ments the de­signer’s take on the mod­ern, Tus­can style of this home, which has a sky­light en­trance, and large win­dows that of­fer stun­ning views.

“The prop­erty is within walk­ing dis­tance of Red­dam School, which can be ac­cessed via the es­tate.”

The auc­tion will be by silent ten­der, with writ­ten of­fers to be sub­mit­ted in sealed en­velopes. Ten­ders will close at noon on June 28. The re­serve price is R8 mil­lion, but all of­fers will be reviewed. The seller is reg­is­tered for VAT, and trans­fer duty will there­fore not be payable.
