Melville’s award-winner lists for R5,5m

98a_4th_Ave_26[5] copyOne of Melville’s best-known award-winning homes and landmarks, which was built in a modernist architectural style using mostly glass and raw concrete, has been placed on the market for the first time since the distinctive bespoke home was completed in 2005.

The unique concrete home, which is conveniently situated within the heart of one of Johannesburg’s trendiest communities and offers magnificent views of the city, is being marketed by Pam Golding Properties for R5,5m.

“The property, which was carefully developed to the owner’s specifications over a period of two years, is an award-winning architectural gem that has clean lines and an openness to its environment at the heart of its design,” said Jason Shaw, Pam Golding Properties national sales manager. “House Rothman was designed in three levels using ample large windows, as well as glass sliding and stack doors, all of which makes the home airy and provides a sense of being intimately connected to its surroundings in fashionable Melville.

“The three-bedroom home also provides a most compelling 270 degree view of the entire city from the third floor open-plan entertainment and living space.”

Thanks to a garden amphitheatre which accommodates 90 people, the home is an entertainer’s dream.

According to Pam Golding Properties agent and area expert, Pieter Basson, Melville is also close to the centres of Rosebank, Sandton, Braamfontein and the Johannesburg city centre, as well as the region’s major universities and a number of outstanding schools.

“Those who enjoy the great outdoors are easily able to take advantage of such facilities as the Melville Koppies Nature Reserve, the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens, where many of the suburb’s residents enjoy walking their dogs, and Emmerentia Dam,” he said. “The local residential property market in Melville remains pleasingly active despite the sluggish national economy. There are a number of reasons for this, including the fact that the suburb is so well situated and residents really tend to love this well-run, colourful and tightly knit community.”
