Rivermead, a wonderful place to be, and live!
The area, West Hill is like living in the country but is a mere 5 minutes’ drive to the hub of the city centre. Nothing is too far away. It’s a quiet suburb with hardly any traffic or noise. It’s well treed with established gardens, perfect to encourage a varied bird population including Green Wood Hoepoe, Knysna Lourie, Burchell’s Coucal, Green Pigeon and Amethyst Sunbirds. A birders paradise.
The property is perfectly positioned on the gentle slope of the hill, giving the home a wonderful view over Grahamstown/Makhanda and towards the green pastures of a farm on one side, the Settlers Monument on another and beyond that, the open hills that surround our city.
Living at Rivermead is exceptional. There are views of the outdoors from almost every room. Such an easy relaxing and calming but functional space to occupy and make your home in, entertain, and work or play in with family and friends. The children will have a spacious garden with interesting nooks and crannies to play “hide and seek” in. There are 3 garages.
It’s also great for hosting a celebratory occasion as guests spill onto the verandas and patios enjoying the friendly ambience of the situ.
And yet, if it all becomes a little too much, quietly escaping to the quiet of one of the suites for a moment or two to regain one’s energy is possible in the space of Rivermead.
Your home is where you retire to at the end of the day and Rivermead provides incredibly well for those special family moments in the living area or in the studio. For those re-energising moments of solitude there is the patio with its panoramic views of the 1820 Settlers’ Monument and the city valley, where your only disturbance will be the sounds of the birds.
This is an exceptional property with many refinements and luxury improvements. If you set a high standard for your family, this is the property to view.
