Set in one of the most sought after tree lined streets in the heart of Essenwood, you are welcomed into this stylish home down a cobbled driveway. The vast entrance hall welcomes you and leads into both the formal lounge and dining room.
The three meter high ceilings, wooden floors and generous proportions of all of the rooms are reminiscent of yesteryear yet the fixtures and fittings are contemporary. This character is echoed throughout the home by the inclusion of large sash windows which were used in the recent sympathetic renovation and extension of this characterful home..
The chandeliers, vast fireplace and wooden floors all add to the elegance of the formal dining room. Sash windows overlook the garden and the glass door from the entrance hall create an airy and bright environment. The formal lounge leads into what was the original entrance hall of the home which is now the center of the home and features a lovely wooden staircase, as well as allowing access to the open plan kitchen and the family room.
The modern kitchen has bespoke cupboards, Caesar stone counter tops with a large center island and French doors that open out onto the large covered veranda. The kitchen is open plan to the family room that accommodates a TV lounge as well as a breakfast bar and this is the heart of the home. This family room has wall to wall stack back doors that open out onto the veranda creating a wonderful flow from inside to outside entertaining with ease. Again, the vast windows and the clever use of a skylight, which ensures privacy from the neighbours but still permits light, ensures that this room is airy and bright. A modern guest cloakroom is located off the family room. The veranda overlooks the swimming pool and offers views of the Durban skyline.
The upstairs landing is currently being used as a home office / study. The main bedroom is carpeted and has floor to ceiling large sash windows, fitted with American shutters, that offer stunning views of Durban, as well as a dressing room with bespoke cupboards and an en-suite bathroom.

All the bedrooms have ducted air conditioning with the main bedroom having its own air conditioning unit.
The second bedroom is carpeted and features built in cupboards as well as a built in desk and shelving. The modern en-suite bathroom offers a bath, shower, basin and toilet. Just like in the main bedroom the large sash windows have been fitted with American shutters. The third bedroom has a wooden floor, and built in cupboards.
