This family home is designed around a quintessential French Provencal inner courtyard with the living areas all opening out to this sheltered, private courtyard. The Fleur De Lis decal on the entrance gates provides a hint of the French style which is evident throughout the home.
The expansive, open plan entrance hall accommodates the staircase and is the center of the home. The formal lounge leads out through double French doors to the front patio, level garden and swimming pool as well as providing direct access to the kitchen ensuring an easy flow for entertaining. The exceptionally large formal dining room offers French doors that open both to the inner courtyard and a patio at the front of the home. The large country kitchen offers a center island with a wooden countertop which incorporates a breakfast bar. The kitchen has a combination of wooden and screeded concrete flooring. A separate pantry provides the additional storage requirements needed to support a large family home. Large steel pane French doors open out from the kitchen to the sheltered, private inner courtyard. An independent laundry leads directly outside to the smaller courtyard and washing lines. The family lounge / TV lounge similarly offers direct access to the inner courtyard which offers a sheltered and private locale for family gatherings or entertaining. The garden guest suite similarly has steel pane French doors that open out from the inner courtyard. The garden guest suite offers a bedroom, separate seating area currently used as a home office and an en-suite bathroom which has a shower, toilet and basin. A guest cloakrooms completes the compliment of downstairs rooms.
The staircase leads up through the double volume entrance hall to the three bedrooms upstairs. The air conditioned main bedroom offers neighbourhood views over Durban's skyline through the French doors that lead out to a balcony. The en-suite bathroom has a bath, basin and toilet. Both the air conditioned second and third bedrooms feature steel pane French doors that open to a Juliet balcony with decorative railings. The second bedroom is en suite with a screeded concrete floor, a ball and claw bath, toilet and a basin set in a vanity with a natural stone counter top. The third bedroom utilises the family bathroom which has a bath, shower and basin with a separate toilet.
Many of the original features of the home have been retained and all add to its character and style. The arched wooden front door, the wooden floors and high ceilings, the cast iron strap hinges on the kitchen door to mention just a few. This is a large family home set on level land which is ideally located in Currie Road.
