Late 1800’s Victorian gem with phenomenal charm

Ryneveld Street is renowned for its utmost prime location in the old centre of town. Lined with oak trees, many historical buildings, cafes, boutiques and art galleries. Some of these properties mentioned were built in the 1700s where others date back to the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. One of them is the well-known and old-time favourite, known as the Ryneveld Lodge. This charming Victorian home, built in the late 1800s is a registered national monument. You don't just invest in a highly sought after property offering prime accommodation, you also invest in a piece of Stellenbosch's history. Walkout onto Ryneveld Street which has a superb feel of old-world charm. Property that is close to learning institutions can be rented at a premium as there is no need to drive to town and find parking, everything is on your doorstep within a 5 min walk, including the Engineering Faculty, Neelsie Student Centre and Eikestad Mall. Neighbouring properties are the popular historical cottages, called the old slave cottages. Ryneveld Street has its own ‘icon name' in Stellenbosch and is highly in demand amongst buyers as well as tenants, by being in the centre of town and opposite the University where parking is a premium. Properties within walking or cycling distance to campus and the town's amenities don't become available often and most definitely nothing clóse to this historic gem! The home overflows with character and potential. Old wooden floors and high ceilings add to its phenomenal charm. The main house offers a reception room, dining area, cosy living lounge which includes an ‘antique' fireplace. Wooden window shutters on the inside and in front of the sash windows in all these rooms, adds considerable value to this landmark property. The kitchen, laundry and so-called ‘powder room' fills the rest of the house. Relax outside on the patio and enjoy time in the splash pool, yet another added advantage. The garden cottage consists of 2 bedrooms with an interleading bathroom, plus their own kitchenette equipped with a basin, bar fridge, induction place, microwave and kettle. The two en-suite loft rooms are absolutely spectacular and unseen in Stellenbosch. They both walk out onto a timber deck terrace, ideal to sit in the sun on summer days whilst busy with online studies or reading a book. Both units are spacious, unique, each with a little study nook, Nespresso coffee machine plus mini fridge and their own full bathrooms, including a free-standing Victorian bath, shower, toilet and basin. The skylights provide natural light and an extra special feel. Stellenbosch holds the honour of being the most well-known town in South Africa. History, culture, natural beauty, sport, education and wine has made the name 'Stellenbosch' resonate around the globe as one of South Africa's premier tourist, wine, business and education attractions. A once in a lifetime opportunity, as this home, tells a whole life story.
