This stately home has reminded many of the creations of Sir Herbert Baker because of its elegant lines and imposing presence on the erf. However, it is not a Sir Herbert Baker creation. Nevertheless, it has something about it that draws the eye to it and then evokes a satisfying sense of grandeur in the eye of the beholder.
Instinctively one looks at this home and imagines the circular driveway amidst manicured lawns leading to the gently curving steps and the wooden front door with portholes catching the eye. Once inside you are drawn into the retro world of wooden floors and window benches, of abundant wood panelling and small glass panes…… and space!
The home has a multiplicity of rooms which can be used for varying activities – a large lounge; a TV room for the family; a music room; an enclosed veranda; a kitchen; a dining-room; – and so the list goes on. With nearly 400 m2 of floor space in the main building and a further approximately 65 m2 in the annex, you certainly have space to swing a cat!
This is a home crying out for a dedicated decorator with an eye for sophistication and elegance, but also with children to bring the warmth and love of a family into the mix. These will transform this “Grande Dames” back into the outstanding family home that she should be.
