Beautiful Constantia Upper estate on the market
Historic 1790 Klaasenbosch Winery converted to luxury Constantia estate on the market
The historic Klaasenbosch Winery located in Constantia Upper and dating back to 1790 is looking for a new owner.
It is one of the original Cape Dutch buildings which date to the early wine farms in the area and has been converted into a spectacular five-bedroomed homestead featuring one of the most unique interior designs on offer in the Cape according to Janine Stevenson and Steven Holvec from Seeff Constantia Upper.
It is set on a large plot of 2,949sqm with beautiful gardens. Features include traditional barn-doors in the entrance hall, a double-volume living room with a feature wood-burning fireplace, built-in bar and doors opening onto the inner courtyard. There’s also a billiard room and study and a separate laundry and scullery.
The beautiful master-suite is the epitome of luxury, with its own lounge, indulgent ‘his hers’ dressing rooms, additional built-in wardrobes, a deluxe en-suite bathroom with a two-way fireplace and sliding glass doors into a conservatory with a private temperature controlled swimming pool. The two dressing-rooms are easily convertible back into two bedrooms with a dedicated full bathroom, say the agents.
There is a further versatile guest bedroom or home-office with adjoining en-suite bathroom and a private gym. The property also offers two garden cottages, staff accommodation, garaging and fabulous garden with a swimming pool and borehole.
Constantia ranks in the top ten most sought-after suburbs in the country for its exclusivity, scenic surrounds and rural quality and of course, its top class homes, especially in the Constantia Upper area where you will find large plots and sprawling mansions.
Property values have not only grown over the last ten years but have held firmly as the suburb has retained its allure even during periods of economic decline, say the agents. It is ideal for families and you have the opportunity to stable horses in the area and have access to prestigious wine farms on your doorstep.
