Rondebosch' older stately traditional homes still appeal to buyers

30 November 2012

 If there is one area in the Cape Peninsula which is still characterised by large, solid, traditional family homes, many with an “English” style and ambience, it is Rondebosch, says Jeanne Cowan, one of two Anne Porter Knight Frank agents serving this area – and, she adds, for this reason it has always been especially popular with professionals. 

Just such a home has now come onto Anne Porter Knight Frank’s books at a price of R4,8 million.  A double story, it has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, an upstairs study and four living, dining and reception areas, most of which flow into an enclosed north facing verandah, which in turn links with the spacious well kept garden and swimming pool.
The home’s kitchen has been fully renovated and adjoins a family TV room and laundry.
On the ground floor, under the staircase, there is a large guest suite. 
The floors in the communal areas are made of solid Oregon pine and the attractive small pane windows are all wood framed.
The garage can hold four motor cars and the home offers further secure off-street parking.  The erf covers 1 332m².
Commenting on the home, Lanice Steward said that it epitomises the high standards found in Rondebosch homes built over 30 years ago.
“You simply cannot get a better investment than these stately, spacious, comfortable Rondebosch homes,” she said.  “They impart a wonderful feeling of grace and calm and they are very easy to live in because each member of the family has his or her space.”
The list price of R4,8 million, says Cowan, equates to a very competitive rate per square metre.
