This unique generously proportioned home simply exudes warmth, charm and character. Dating back to the early 1900s and purportedly built by Welsh stonemasons, the property has changed hands only three times and has been lovingly cared for and maintained, testament to which lies in the deep, rich patina of the gleaming wooden floors and windows that are in excellent condition. Some of the cupboards and fittings are said to have been made from teak timbers salvaged from the S.S. Clan Stuart which went aground off Glencairn in 1914, and the house was originally designed and built for the then Deputy Mayor of Simon's Town, D. W. Hopkirk.
You'll find the 'whale watching seat' in the enormous master bedroom irresistible; there are fireplaces in the living room and in two of the bedrooms, secret storage spaces, large front and back terraces, a lovely peaceful study, a tranquil, secluded fynbos garden, garaging for four vehicles, around 6,000 litres of water storage and comprehensive security. Situated a mere stone's throw from the newly refurbished tidal pool and Glen Beach and offering breathtaking 180-degree views, what more could one possibly want? A rare find indeed - don't let this opportunity pass you by. Call me today to arrange your viewing.
