NEW! R1,95m - Two houses on a supersized plot with pool & gazebo!


photo21 A property full of surprises. Just visible above an indigenous hedge is a flat-roofed building of local stone which blends perfectly with the Karoo surroundings. Take a step through the gate and the vista which opens up is one of quiet order and serenity against a distant backdrop of the Swartberg mountains.
To your left is the main building, a compact house with a deep, plant shaded verandah overlooking the extensive lawns, swimming pool, gazebo and a second cottage to the right. This is for guests, while the owners occupy the first house.
Every brick and stone and beam has been placed by the owners, who have designed and built a home filled with soul, and yet convenient in every possible way.
The open plan living and dining room lead to the big shady verandah, and adjoin a fully-fitted kitchen finished in smart charcoal. The kitchen opens to an enclosed courtyard for laundry and other utilities.  Off the living area is a guest shower and toilet, as well as a compact laundry and linen storage area. There are gleaming natural concrete floors throughout the house, making housekeeping a breeze.
The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom, and thanks to a clever use of space, a small dressing room as well.
Step off the verandah and across the lawn to the pool and entertainment-sized gazebo with lounging day-beds and a fridge. Roofed over and half-walled with corrugated iron, it fits perfectly into the Karoo environment.
Overlooking the pool is the second cottage for overflow family or guests. With two double rooms, and TWO en suite showers and toilets, it offers a surprising amount of space and luxury in a small package. There is also a comfortable living/dining room with kitchenette. French doors lead to the verandah with views of the pool and the garden.
No detail has been overlooked here, and the property also has a storeroom, outside shower and toilet.
The entire property has been loved and nurtured from day one, so that its glowing and immaculate appearance today is not a cosmetic layer, but a true reflection of a home that truly has a soul.

Fun Facts
holbol
Our logo is based on the unique Prince Albert  gable, a variation of the original “holbol”, with vertical and horizontal moulding and a pediment with the date of construction or the owner's initials.

The use of the gable is a visual statement of our commitment to the preservation of Prince Albert’s architectural heritage.
