Full property description

The Villa, with its resident pets and relaxed, peaceful atmosphere, is perfect for either groups of adult friends or families who enjoy being immersed in nature, whilst enjoying the luxury and comfort of a beautifully, appointed and equipped home in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands. The hideaway is a wonderland of places to escape and play with an adventure or new nook to explore around every corner. The Villa is a short drive from from a handful of well known restaurants, as well as the very popular house of Sparkling wine - JC le Roux.

The Manor House offer 3 en suite bedrooms, all upstairs and also has a central media entertainment area with fireplace to cuddle up as a family to relax. The fourth bedroom is a separate suite next to the swimming pool and overlooks the lake. Life at this villa centres around the extensive outdoor areas - the beautifully maintained gardens under majestic oak and pine trees, sweeping verandas, balustrade terracing, fountains and picturesque dam vistas are all part of this wonderful villa.

Hiding away in gardens is every child's dream – a jungle gym play area, a teepee with fire pit, tree house, Zip line into the dam, are all begging to be explored with the resident great danes. The Summer Room is an integral part of the Cape lifestyle and this home – a place to relax on comfortable sofas and easy access to the majestic pool. Winter time beckons the use of the cosy fireplace and warm atmosphere.

Enjoy a glass of wine on the floating deck as the sun sets and glows on the distant Helderberg Mountains. Unique to this property is a dam, and eco pool within it. Fish and play in the natures haven. For the romantic in you, retreat to the deck hidden in the trees and dine under the stars, as you embrace the feeling of how life should be, enjoying complete peace of mind in a secure, serene environment.

Location

Area description

Less than an hour's drive from Cape Town, and 30 scenic minutes from Franschhoek, Stellenbosch was founded in 1679 and is the second oldest town in South Africa after Cape Town. It was named after then Governor Simon van der Stel and still has some fine examples of early Cape Dutch architecture. Wines from the Stellenbosch region are known internationally and some of the reds especially rank among the best in the world. Stellenbosch is also home to one of the country's oldest established universities, so there is a bustling night life during the university term-time, with many bars and night clubs.

Stellenbosch is small enough that the entire town centre can easily be covered on foot and it's a very pleasant walk too, along beautiful old oak lined streets, past historic old Cape Dutch buildings, stopping to enjoy the many interesting craft shops and art galleries, or to eat at the excellent range of cafes and restaurants around town.
