For Sale R5,150,000 - House
If you’re after low maintenance, lock -and go property in a secure, convenient location, there’s actually a great deal going for this property – over and above the extremely reasonable asking price.
For starters, security is great. You access from Newlands Ave, but you’re not right on Newlands Ave. You’re in the middle of 3 homes in this freehold development – so you have the security of the common driveway and neighbours you know on both sides. And on the driveway side, the adjacent filling station and Pick n Pay Express has 24/7 security.
And that’s pretty handy. If you get in from a long flight and find that the milk isn’t great, or don’t feel like specially stopping to get freshly baked bread – well then you can walk right next door and buy it when you get home. It’s also pretty handy to have popular Forries restaurant/carvery/bar directly across the road. I will admit that gets a little busy at times – so perhaps if the occasional approving roar of the crowd watching a try being scored is going to bother you, then 33b Newlands Ave may not be the place for you.
Access to the CBD/Airport is pretty quick – one of the benefits of living in the Newlands Village area is that it’s leafy and very pretty, but you miss 90% of the morning traffic to and fro town.
We’re offering a modern, 2 bedroomed house with a separate study. If you really had to have a 3rd bedroom occasionally, the study can be considered a bedroom. There’s a spacious north facing master bedroom with bathroom en-suite and double doors to a small balcony. Also upstairs is another bedroom and bathroom (shower only) and the study/3rd bedroom. All have built-in cupboards. There is actually lots of room for expansion for additional rooms if you’d like to build above the garage as the neighbour to the east has done. Speaking of the garage – it’s tiled and has glassed sliding doors to the patio and pool – just in case you ever need to add it to the existing living rooms for a special party occasion.
The living rooms are all open plan to the kitchen – with direct access from the nice big double garage. The kitchen has built in oven and hob, and integrated under-counter fridge/freezer. The kitchen is plumbed for dishwasher. (Washing machine and dryer live in the garage). From the kitchen you can look right out to the sheltered courtyard garden and pool. I’m very security conscious, but I’d feel very relaxed leaving the sliding doors open all day – the garden and courtyard feels very protected and inaccessible from adjoining boundaries due to high walls and thick hedging. A really super feature that you don’t often get in smaller complexes is that in addition to the double garage, you can have 2 visitors’ cars parking in front of your garage.
The property is alarmed, and has fibre. The swimming pool is gunite, and was fibreglassed a few years ago.
