Pristinely authenticated renovated home located in prestigious suburb of Bishopscourt next to glorious Wynberg park and Chartfarm- with its renowned great variety of roses- has maintained its Gatekeepers charm and character -Monterey Cottage- being part and parcel of historical Monterey Manor House, neo-Tudor mansion declared as a National Monument, having been built shortly after the Anlo-Boer War.
Positioned on 2369 m2 land the home is surrounded by an array of magnificent indigenous trees - yes yellowwood too -flora and newly created garden by owner- with absolute passion and love- and now even includes its very own vines for producing your very own signature red wine- fortuitously with property having its own borehole. Recent installation of serviced sprinkler system.
The outside garden allows for great outdoor entertainment especially around the very large pool area- recently re-surfaced- as home is uniquely positioned on property allowing for total privacy, assured security and maximum utilization for matchless mountain and valley views. The home further conveys a perfect seamless symbiosis between outdoor and indoor living which flows to large outside garden.
The wood antiquities have been pristinely preserved and restored by the owner, throughout the entire home, adding to its wonderful charm and reminder of the eternal beauty of wood so essentially prominent in days of old when building homes. They retain such allurement in perpetuity especially so visibly portrayed in this wonderful home.
