A graciously restored property, which is a national monument and offers ample accommodation, has come onto the market for R5.999 million.
In the historic heart of the town, the 2 700 square metre property, which is on the market through Pam Golding Properties (PGP) has 11 bedrooms spread across three different residences, each with its own separate entrance. The homes have been restored to pristine condition and are set within a lush garden.
PGP agent Adri Holm says the main house, known as “Eikenhof”, was constructed in 1900 and the cottage on the property, known as “Kleinehof”, is even older, dating back to 1890. Both buildings were declared national monuments in the 1970s.
“Eikenhof” is a single-storey villa with extensive Victorian detail. The home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, lounge, dining room and family room, study, double garage and staff accommodation.
"The spacious kitchen has a separate pantry and eat-in area, while an enclosed veranda provides a shady space to relax in all weather conditions."
Semi-detached to this homestead is a separate double-storey residence with bay window, known as “Op’thof”. This section offers four bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus another dining room, study and living room, and a kitchen with separate scullery. This residence also has a separate double garage.
The final home, the cottage “Kleinehof”, has three bedrooms, one bathroom, living room and pyjama lounge, as well as its own kitchen and store room.
Holm says the property would be ideal for a large and multi-generational family, allowing teenagers and grandparents to enjoy their own private space while still living within the family home. “This area with its beautiful oak-lined streets and gracious homes is close to some of the best schools in the country, making it ideal for families.”
PGP area manager for Paarl, Surina du Toit, adds that the property also has potential for development as a guesthouse, subject to planning approvals. “Heritage homes are particularly well-suited to the hospitality industry, and this property’s layout would lend itself to ample guest accommodation while still reserving a private space for the owner or manager,” she says.
