This stunning family home with solid oak floors, sash windows, chandeliers and pressed ceilings offers authentic finishes and real old world charm. The driveway leads up past an exquisite garden to the house featuring a deep veranda on the north side of the property. This elegant colonial homestead is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac adjacent to a peaceful park in the sought after lifestyle Estate of Belvidere, Knysna. At the front door one enters into a roomy entrance hall. The formal, smaller lounge with jet master fireplace is just right off the entrance hall. Beyond that is the light, spacious lounge/dining room with happy doors out on to the most glorious patio area, facing north, looking over a sparkling, salt water pool (with its own solar heating) and green garden filled with bursts of colour. Lazy summer days are spent on this gorgeous veranda – no need to move, ever! In addition there is the north east facing sunroom which also has doors out on to the patio. A large farm house kitchen, guest loo and a study are also on ground floor level. The study has a generous bank of fitted cupboards and has a door leading off it, to a stair case below which features a wine cellar that has the capacity for 800 bottles of wine! The enclosed courtyard off the kitchen keeps wash day linen out of sight, and also offers access to a further neat outside room and shower. At the top of the beautiful oak staircase are four good sized bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have complete northern aspects while the fourth has a north/western aspect. There are peeps of lagoon views from upstairs and the long patio off the bedrooms, provide for additional sun and views whilst sipping on your early morning cup of coffee. There is remote access for the gates at the end of the driveway. The garage is larger than a regular double garage for additional storage space. Belvidere Manor and The Bell Pub are just a stroll away from this charming homestead.
