Wynberg Upper – R6 200 000 : Spacious & Versatile!
Chas Everitt is privileged to offer a substantial property in a unique location. This residence is one of only five houses that are located inside Wynberg Park on a section of land (still a part of Upper Constantia) that was once a part of the Alphen Farm. Wynberg Park lies between Bishopscourt, Constantia and Upper Wynberg in an elevated position on Wynberg Hill. Residents describe their location as ‘a hidden secret’ as the Park closes at 7 pm and being a cul de sac into the Park, its access after these hours is basically residents only.
This substantial and versatile property has been renovated by the architect owner over a decade to offer an abundance of living areas. It is surrounded by established trees and set in an easy to maintain water-wise garden with a borehole going to a deep water reserve under the dolomite layer that is the reason for Wynberg Hill.
Designed to be cool in summer and warm in winter, the sunroom conservatory is one of a few exciting features. Another is the huge covered pool with water feature embraced by new Palau wooden decked entertainment area with large flat screen TV – this area is a ‘Home & Garden’ picture by day and night. A very significant bonus to this property’s versatility is two one bedroom fully furnished spacious flats that have been earning a rental of R8400-00 each. A great opportunity for additional income or the extended family!
The main house has a spacious entrance hall and through double French glass doors leads to a partly open plan lounge and dining room with wooden beams, high ceilings, and feature stone fireplace. This heart of the home leads to the attractive well-fitted kitchen (with breakfast-nook) the sun-room and a guest suite with double shower which is a conversion of the ample downstairs area that was done for the owner’s elderly parent, however, this could be kept as a guest suite or returned to a TV room and downstairs guest toilet.
Upstairs has been reconfigured from an original five bedrooms and two bathrooms to an exciting versatile new configuration being a huge main en-suite (with a corner spa bath and shower and double basins) and a well fitted dressing room and a second bedroom, a second bathroom, a small upstairs living room and two studies alternatively two additional bedrooms. This interesting area is a dream for teenage kids and you need to see it to understand its versatility as well as great views over Constantia Valley.
The Two flats: The two comfortable self-contained flats each consists of lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. All furniture in the fully fitted flats are included in the sale. They have their own electricity meters and geysers and they do not impact on the privacy of the main dwelling. Both flats also have a reasonably private garden area.
Security: Most importantly the unique location is ‘naturally’ secure. As the owner says “nobody knows we are here!” Never the less an investment in convenience and security such as camera intercom, perimeter beams, internal beams, remote electric gate and perimeter wire all provide additional security.
Energy water efficiency: The property is energy efficient with solar and gas geysers, double glazing in bedroom areas, insulation and extensive use of LED lighting and shares a joint borehole with the neighbour.
Location: The five properties inside the Park enjoy unlimited Park access and as the Park has an opening and closing time only the five houses in the Park use it outside of the public hours. (Shortly the remaining section of the Park will be enclosed between where the fencing currently ends and the M3 motorway which runs behind the five properties.
A unique opportunity to own this classic French Provincial style home, with its enviable address and versatility makes this an excitingly different place to call home.)
