Stel­len­bosch home is set in tran­quil ‘Golden Tri­an­gle’

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A LARGE “am­bas­sado­rial” home, set in a tran­quil set­ting among vine­yards in the his­toric town of Stel­len­bosch and of­fer­ing breath­tak­ing views of moun­tains and sea, will be auc­tioned on site by the ClareMart Auc­tion Group at 1pm on Septem­ber 29.

Si­t­u­ated in “The Golden Tri­an­gle”, a top wine-grow­ing area, the thatchedroof char­ac­ter home of about 721m² com­prises a main house and an at­tached guest and en­ter­tain­ment wing, says Mike Baigel of ClareMart.

On the lower level of the main house are five bed­rooms, a spa­cious lounge and din­ing room, a fit­ted kitchen and scullery, and sev­eral cov­ered pa­tios and decks from which to take in the panoramic views of moun­tains, sea and vine­yards, he says.

“The liv­ing ar­eas have a good flow from one room to the next and the clever ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign al­lows for a bal­ance of sunny and shaded ar­eas, with just enough nat­u­ral light stream­ing in.”

Baigel says, in keep­ing with the style of an am­bas­sado­rial or of­fi­cial res­i­dence, the up­per level houses a study, a li­brary, and an of­fice, mak­ing this an ideal work-from-home prop­erty that dis­tinctly sep­a­rates the work space from the fam­ily’s liv­ing area.

The guest wing is set on rolling green lawns and in­cludes three spa­cious bed­rooms, a kitchen, a lounge or li­brary, and a study.

“It also in­cludes staff quar­ters for two, ideal for male and fe­male house­keep­ing staff or man­age­ment. In ad­di­tion, there are two dou­ble garages and se­cure park­ing for 14 ve­hi­cles.”

Elec­tri­fied perime­ter fenc­ing se­cures the one-hectare prop­erty, which Baigel be­lieves “must be viewed to ap­pre­ci­ate the life­style of grandeur, fi­nesse and pri­vacy” it of­fers.

The prop­erty – Bel­len­bosch, Por­tion 6 of Farm 1328, Eik­endal Road, Stel­len­bosch – will be on show both on Sun­day and on Septem­ber 24 from 2pm to 5pm.

A 5% de­posit and 10% auc­tion­eer’s com­mis­sion (ex­clud­ing VAT on the com­mis­sion) will be payable on the fall of the ham­mer. The bal­ance will be payable on reg­is­tra­tion of trans­fer.

For more de­tails or an ap­point­ment to view the prop­erty, call Mike Baigel on 021 425 8822 or 082 926 9479, email or see www.
