A spacious house of great character and charm.
Built in1893, the house faces north and east on a corner plot.
Located in a leafy heritage enclave above Main Road, it is within walking distance of UCT, close to mountains and forests, and only about 10 minutes drive to the city or the airport.
Intact Victorian features include wooden floors, four-meter-high pressed ceilings, three beautiful working fireplaces, and a wrap-around porch.
The generously proportioned rooms in the main house include living room, kitchen, four bedrooms (3double+1single), and two full bathrooms.
There are two garages plus off street parking for one more car.
In addition to the main house there is a loft with over 75 sq metres of space, a gorgeous view of the mountain, and its own bathroom, offering great potential as a studio or separate loft apartment. There is also a separate little cottage with a small bedroom and bathroom and sunny living room/kitchen. The house could do with modernizing in terms of fitted cupboards and finishes, but it is structurally in very good condition.
Pretty patios in front and back and a roof-top terrace with beautiful mountain views.
An ideal venue for academic accommodation or a work-from-home business (the current owner runs a flower and cake business; it would be equally inspiring for a design studio, an architectural practice, doctors’ rooms, a small institute, etc.)
The location feels very safe as it benefits from an exceptional security presence from UCT and GSCID as well as Mowbray SAPS around the corner.
