ATTRACTIVE THREE-BEDROOM HOME WITH FLATLET FOR SALE IN IRENE
This upmarket dwelling with its eco-friendly thatched roof is evocative of a game lodge, a rural sanctuary set amid towering trees! Located on a leafy lane in the heart of the Irene boomed area and a stone’s throw from the Irene Oval, this immaculate property offers peace-of-mind and a lifestyle beyond compare. Whether you’re looking for the perfect setting to raise a family, or simply love to entertain, then this one is for you!
Behind the attractive facade, the interior of the home does not disappoint! The generously-proportioned ceilingless living areas and kitchen are predominantly open-plan and flow seamlessly into one another, and out to the entertainment areas set against the backdrop of a lush garden and sparkling pool. Skylights and extensive windows ensure that the living space is light, bright and airy in summer, and a central fireplace provides warmth in winter.
With plenty of concrete, slate and brick in evidence, the kitchen boasts a semi-industrial look, but without sacrificing functionality and convenience. It is fitted with a state-of-the-art gas stove, and features ample counter space, a built-in wine rack and a pantry cupboard. A discreet scullery and separate laundry ensure that there is plenty of room for all the requisite appliances, with space left over for a kitchen table.
Upstairs you will find an extensive loft with space for a study and a guest room, but which could equally well accommodate a teenager’s pad, recreation room or pajama lounge!
The passage leads to three bedrooms, a guest toilet, and two bathrooms, of which the main is en-suite. Bedrooms offer built-in cupboards, laminated floors, and an exquisite view over the swimming pool and garden. The bathrooms are modern and tastefully finished.
The flatlet is neat, cosy and well-equipped, and has a private entrance from the street. Consisting of a bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette, it can be used as a guest suite, a granny flat, or to generate an alternative income stream, the choice is yours! Currently it is operated as Airbnb-style accommodation, with great success.
Other noteworthy features of this stunning property include a double automated garage and an alarm system. A smaller second loft is accessible via an outside staircase, and lends itself to being used as a man-cave or hobby room.
In exchange for a small levy, Irene residents enjoy the benefits of living in a secure boomed area, with an electric fence protecting the outer perimeter, and manned control points at all entrances. The boomed area offers peace of mind, and a viable alternative for those who dislike the rigidity and expense of a true security estate.
Situated next to the R21 and N1 highways, Irene is perfectly located for easy access to most of Gauteng, including Johannesburg, Pretoria, Krugersdorp, Lanseria Airport, Kempton Park and OR Tambo International. The Gautrain offers a convenient alternative for those who prefer a more relaxed commute.
For the shopping enthusiast, the area is rich in shopping malls, including Centurion Mall, Irene Village Mall, Eco Park Lifestyle Centre, and Southdowns Centre. For those enjoying a more active lifestyle, the area boasts top-end Planet Fitness and Virgin Active gyms, hiking and biking trails, and an assortment of sports clubs.
Schools in the area include Irene Primary School, Cornwall College and Southdowns College. Top-notch medical facilities are available at the Highveld and Southdowns medical centres, amongst others. Unitas Hospital, South Africa’s largest private hospital, is a ten-minute drive away.
