About this listing
This 380 m² home on a 1449 m² fully enclosed plot is situated in Durbell which is an upmarket area of Durbanville where you won't overcapitalise by building on or renovating. The facebrick exterior and aluminium windows with paved garden offer a saving on property maintenance and water.
The main house consists of a spacious lounge with fireplace, open-plan kitchen/bar area with solid wooden finishes, a gas hob and undercounter electric oven and a scullery.

There are three spacious bedrooms all with outside access (main with walk-in cupboard), a study (or smaller fourth bedroom), two bathrooms (family with bath and shower), a separate toilet and basin, en-suite with shower, basin, toilet and bidet, a utility/scullery room and a walk in pantry/linen cupboard. The side courtyard has a built-in braai and there is an outside toilet and basin. The house has its own automated front gate, leading into a double volume garage with 2 automatic doors and there is wheelchair access from this garage. There is another double carport next to the garage with shade net.
Flatlet 1 has a lounge with underfloor heating and an eating/counter area, a kitchen with gas hob and eye level electric oven and a spacious bedroom with built-in cupboards and en-suite bathroom with shower, basin and toilet. It has a lovely balcony from where you can enjoy mountain views and a separate courtyard off the bedroom. Flatlet 2 has a big bedroom with tiled floors with underfloor heating and walk-in closet, a separate kitchenette and en-suite bathroom with shower, basin, urinal and toilet. The flatlets share the double carport under shade net in front of Flatlet 2 and have their own automated gate. These flatlets can be combined into I unit.
The plot lends itself to further extensions of the building and there are plans drawn to build a two bedroom cottage above the garage. There is also a large orchard at the top of the property.
The flatlets can be rented out on a short/long term basis for extra income or are ideal for an extended family or grandparents to share the property with the children and their family. It is also ideal if you would like to run offices from home and there is more than enough paved parking space behind security fencing and electric gates.
Extras: Fibre WIFI connection, Satellite dish, 5 DSTV points, alarm system (each unit has separate zones), JOJO Tank (2200 l) with pressure pump, separate electricity and water meters for main house and flatlets, Wendy House.
