Elegant family home with great history.

Exclusive Mandate- Large family home with view over town and mountains with ample parking. The history of this remarkable property began in 1938 when TKK Jurisch, the land surveyor of the area, traveled with his wife to the United Kingdom where they spent some time at Glamis Castle, near Dundee Scotland. After falling in love with the architecture and style of the castle Mr Jurisch appointed a dutch architect to capture the lines of the castles' features and drew up the plans for a new home for them here in Riversdale - hence the name Glamis. Built in 1939 the original roof where covered with shingles which have later been replaced by tiles. The woodwork of the floors, doors, door frames and windows are commendable and in beautifully preserved condition. The rooms are large with high ceilings and the kitchen is separate from the dining room and lounge. The dining room and lounge can be separated with beautiful sliding doors. The lead decorated windows, locking handles and wrought iron door hinges and locks are in pristine working order. Alongside the kitchen is a large pantry and there are 3 linen cupboards in the hallway. The house has a Northern and Eastern stoep surrounded by a lush and meticulously kept garden with large trees and vegetable patch. There are 2 rain water tanks for watering the garden. Behind the house is a lapa with built in braai to entertain friends and family. Also separate from the house is a large laundry room with access to the double garage. The driveway is paved and large enough for 4 extra vehicles or a caravan and boat. The property offers the possibility to offer accommodation to business and holiday tourists and is ideally located with in walking distance to 4 restaurants and the Dibiki holiday resort that has a large swimming pool and tennis court. If you like the style of the older victorian homes there are none other like this in the area. Please make an appointment in advance to view. Riversdale is a popular destination and pass through for tourists and business people. There are plenty of activities like hiking, cycling and spend time in nature. Pop in at the Julius Gordon Africana Museum to see some of our towns' history.
