Pop star's fascinating property in Saddlebrook equestrian estate on exclusive sole mandate with Seeff
The home, that was featured on Top Billing in 2014, is set upon 14 951m2 of rolling lawns, meticulously maintained rose gardens and has panoramic views of Johannesburg, says Chris Paxton from Seeff who is marketing the home.
“The American Colonial Style architecture with strong influences from the neoclassical scene, radiates superior luxury and chandeliers and mirrors inspired by the Versailles period adorn the open plan living areas.
There is also a piano lounge, formal lounge, formal dining area, finely crafted mahogany bar, informal lounge, family room and informal dining area equipped with a butler’s station and the designer kitchen is fitted with imported Italian Carrara marble counter tops while the separate scullery has a walk in refrigerator.
Even though all five bedrooms and six bathrooms in this home are remarkable, the master bedroom includes a gas fireplace, private balcony, walk in dressing room furnished with garments and shoes the lady of the mansion purchased from all around the globe and a full en suite bathroom”.
Paxton adds that the property is suited for equestrian use, with four stables, tack/feed room, two large white fenced paddocks and a lunging arena. Additional features include underfloor heating, air conditioning, a wine cellar, generator, bore hole and state of the art security features.
“Saddlebrook Estate is an idyllic secure enclave in Kyalami that is just a short commute to Sandton's business and retail hub.
The estate – where eight properties have changed hands in 2017 - is one of the safest residential estates in the country and includes many bridle paths, communal areas and jogging tracks
Although you don’t need to own a horse, or even ride to live in Saddlebrook Estate, you will have to like horses, because you will probably be living next door to one!
Starting at one hectare, the residential stands are big enough to include a few four-hoofed family members, so most residents keep their horses “in their backyards,” concludes Paxton.
