Built circa 1902, this late Victorian manor house is characterized by the grace and abundance of that architectural era.
Well positioned on a corner, quarter acre in a quiet Rosebank street, above the main road, this historic homestead faces squarely north and is flooded with sun and light.
Showcasing many original features: bay windows, tall, teak sash windows with several bays, original fireplaces, French doors and deep verandahs & balconies are just a few.
An entrance hall with original mosaic tile floor, leaded windows and stained glass ushers one to the lower floor and three grand reception rooms of sizable proportions featuring hardwood flooring of more that a century old. (One, with bay window offers a bathroom en suite and has an alternate use as a 5th bedroom).
The imposing staircase leads to the upper floor and to four very large bedrooms, main en suite and a further bathroom. Three of these rooms open to expansive balconies and sweeping mountain views.
Set in an established garden with front and rear lawns and old trees this landmark property has been owned and loved by the same family for more than 50 years. The grounds also offer doubling garaging, outhouses and cellars.
This home lends itself to a sensitive, contemporary reimagination which would see the property restored inter alia as a stately family residence or recreated as a guest house or retirement residence of great refinement.
A conversion to a sectional title property that then offers more than one residence is also a consideration.
Ideally situated, this classic property provides almost immediate access to UCT & leading schools, arterial roads to the city and a direct route to the airport.
