Aside from the beautifully preserved manor house, there is also a large tennis court, swimming pool, two changing rooms and an entertainment area that overlooks the pool, an office suite on the side of the house, staff accommodation, a single garage and plenty of secure, off-street parking, a storeroom and wooden shed.
The manor house has been upgraded over the years and is in excellent condition, said Charmaine Scott-Wilson, Seeff’s Rondebosch area specialist.
“The living areas boast lovely pressed ceilings, wooden floors (Sapele in the lounge), chandeliers and fireplaces, including in the study,” she said. “The formal lounge is extra-large and includes a built-in pub, ideal for entertaining and it opens to a covered patio that overlooks the pool area. The formal dining room also opens to a covered balcony. The large kitchen has a separate scullery and opens to a breakfast room as well as an outside laundry.”
The home boasts five bedrooms and four upgraded bathrooms, and due to being designed by Sir Herbert Baker, is highly sought after. Scott-Wilson said other Barker-designed homes often fetch prices of well into the upper millions.
Rondebosch also ranks as one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in the Cape metro and boasts plenty of greenery and stunning mountain views. It is also renowned for its top schools including Bishops, Rondebosch Prep and Boys’ High, along with the close proximity to UCT and many top-class medical centres such as Groote Schuur and the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.
