Property Description

Once an historic farm house surrounded by farmlands, this Cape Dutch-style Constantia home – now with soft terracotta-coloured walls rather than the traditional whitewash – has cleverly retained its poise, position and discreet charm in the heart of an established garden. Through the gates and up the driveway and you are immediately private and secure. Walls of greenery and sturdy, mature trees create a secret garden on a property surprisingly, only a few minutes’ walk from Constantia Village shopping centre. It’s a home for all seasons; cool in summer with its thick walls and terracotta tiles underfoot, large double doors lead from one informal living room to an enclosed pool area for high summer and lazing about on loungers. The grass remains green despite the year’s low rainfall with borehole water used sparingly so that the hibiscus and hydrangeas retain their pink and purple blooms.

The garden so pivotal to the character of the home survives and thrives. In winter under-floor heating in the bedrooms, an open fireplace and a wood-burning fireplace stove entice you indoors for red wine, crusty home baked bread and ripe Brie, perhaps the spoils of your morning out at the markets or the nearby wine farms. Stacked at the fireplace dense, hard Kameeldoring wood adds russet warmth to the room and when the wood burns, the house is fragrant with its distinctive musky, aromatic scent.
