For Sale R3,980,000 - Double Storey
When agents say EXCEPTIONAL finishes, they sometimes lure you in under false pretences. But in this home I may be understating – the German owner/builder installed the very best – with a view to the property requiring very little maintenance in the long term.
Every external door and window is double glazed – adding security and saving significantly on cooling/heating costs– but also insulating against sound and intruders. And how about an electricity bill just under R1000 a month for a family of 5? You can thank the Heat Pump as well for drastically and efficiently reducing the cost of hot water here.
The windows need to be seen to be believed – they either open as a conventional window does, or with an easy twist of the handle they tilt inwards – giving you ventilation with complete security. And the frames and windows/doors all came as one unit from the factory (I suspect in Germany) – so they will open and close perfectly for a lifetime. A child can easily handle one of the large sliding doors to the patio and garden – they glide open and closed with ease.
There’s solid Oak Flooring to complement the modern open plan feel of the house
– with a showpiece high gloss white kitchen – yes of course – the very best hinges and runners. Plus there’s a built-in Dishwasher. Actually, you’ll find that all of the built-in cupboards enjoy the very best of sophisticated fittings. There are 4 bedrooms – all with cupboards, and even the 4 en-suites have top-of the range fittings – as well as under floor heating.
Security is great – there is an integrated shutter on the stairway that locks down the upstairs, and every window is already pretty secure with the double gazing, but in addition has clear-view bars upstairs. The property is alarmed with external beams and electric fencing – with cameras and recording system that you can log in to remotely on a smartphone. There is a single large garage, a garage/carport, and additional secure parking.
