This magnificent property is located in a private position on over an acre of lush indigenous gardens high up in Victorskloof and is home to a reputable guest house or an incredible dual living opportunity with a myriad of accommodation and development options. Please refer to the upper portion of the subdivision diagram.
In typical colonial victorian-style the home has a full wrap around verandah on the north facing side that enjoys magnificent mountain vistas of the back of the twelve apostles and sweeping views of the valley toward Orange kloof reserve. The natural setting and serene environment exudes tranquility and and you will find many private spaces off of most of the individual accommodation and the numerous footpaths that explore the garden to relax and unwind for guests or family alike.
The main house boasts generous accommodation with 6 double bedrooms all with built in cupboards sharing an equal amount of bathrooms.
The main bedroom en-suite is spacious, light and bright and leads out to a private patio enjoying north facing mountain vistas and is a perfect place to welcome the day to the sounds of the abundant birdlife or capture the last of the evening’s rays.

Directly above this and nestled into the garden is a glass conservatory or greenhouse that was built to raise and nurture most of the indigenous plants that make up the magnificent flora on the property, but now serves as a magical space for entertaining or relaxing.
