Superb Cape Cottage in Prince Albert

A truly exceptional Cape Cottage circa 1880 in prime Prince Albert. Situated at the southerly end of town, below the majestic Swartberg Mountains, at the gateway to the world-famous Swartberg Pass. Tastefully refurbished and enhanced by the current owners, this home retains the grace and elegance of the 19th Century. Many original features are to be relished – these include 4m high yellow wood ceilings and superb yellow wood doors and architraves and stately sash windows. The elegant open-plan Living and Dining Room, with combustion wood-burning fireplace, gives way to a sheltered covered veranda overlooking the magical garden with emerald green lawns, roses, citrus grove and stately pear and almond trees. A cozy Reading Room, or neutral space for reflection and repose, boasts an elegant French window with period shutters, offering private vistas of a vine-covered pergola and the garden beyond. A large breeze-way study (or third bedroom) provides an elegant area for work from home facilities. The Carriage House has been tastefully converted into a Hobby Room or Studio, with fireplace and period sash windows, and French doors to the garden. The Master Bedroom is complete with his and hers en-suite bathrooms, with sanitary ware and fixtures & fittings which are respectful of the rich history of this property. The second bedroom is serviced by a family bathroom, which also serves as a Guest Cloakroom. The period farm-style kitchen, with separate scullery with bespoke farm style cabinetry, is characterized by the original Dover stove and superb stenciled screed floor. The ultimate embellishment of this fairytale garden is the gurgling crystal clear ‘leiwater' sluice that runs through the property. A private dam and separate tank are filled by the generous thirty minutes per week ‘leiwater' allocation, and the entire garden is fully irrigated. This beautiful home in its unique setting is the epitome of simple uncomplicated Karoo country living, in an environment of sublime privacy and complete tranquility. Impossible to replicate or copy, a privilege to own and behold!
