Particularly beautiful Victorian home in the heart of the Muizenberg Village.
Brimming with character, this comfortable and stylish family home has three spacious bedrooms, a family bathroom and an outside shower and loo for freshening up after a day on the beach or a quick morning surf. There’s an original fireplace in the main bedroom and in the formal living room. The high ceilings are original pressed ceilings, throughout the house are beautiful original Oregon pine floors, doors and sash windows, which give the house an elegant warmth.
The previous owners opened up the back of the house to create a semi open-plan living room, dining room and country-style kitchen which opens onto an al fresco dining area and intimate side garden.
The dining room adjoining the sitting room offers a more formal dining experience, or you can eat al fresco on the back deck, or, in the cosy kitchen.
The covered front verandah is shielded from the street by a prolific bougainvillea that keeps the front of the house cool while the back courtyard with its olive tree and veggie mini-garden is ideal for braais and al fresco dining in summer.
Parking, as in most of the Muizenberg Village, is on-street, but the regular on-foot and vehicle security patrols provided by the Muizenberg Improvement District (MID) ensure that cars are safe and petty crime is under control, while a weekly MID cleaning team keep the streets free of litter and grime.
It’s literally a 5-minute walk to Surfers Corner – in fact, you hardly need a car if you live in the Muizenberg Village. Everything is on your doorstep. An artisanal bakery, friendly pizza restaurant, family butcher, local pub, instant print shop, pottery & art and craft galleries are all just around the corner, and the supermarket, post office, bottle store, auto banks and even a vet shop are a few minutes’ walk away.
A short walk to the legendary Surfers Corner reveals an abundance of restaurants, coffee bars, nightspots and surf lifestyle shops along the shore of Cape Town’s most popular swimming and surfing beach.
Any Muizenberg resident will tell you about the creative community vibe, so if it’s community, safety and a relaxed beach lifestyle you are after, this beautiful Victorian semi in the heart of the Village is definitely for you!
