Own a piece of Swellendam's history

EXCLUSIVE SOLE MANDATE: Beautiful and distinguished restored Grande Dame built in 1928. Located on a terraced slope in prime position on the outskirts of Swellendam, yet walking distance to the historic centre of Swellendam. This culturally significant double-storey thatched home boasts breath-taking views of the Langeberg Mountains and direct access to the Marloth Nature Reserve, hiking and mountain bike trails. Set amidst carefully chiselled heritage raised herb, vegetable and predominantly indigenous flower beds, and framed by formalised garden paths, the well-built main house continues to convey the strong sense of place envisioned by its original owner-builder. Existing heritage elements boast the property's definitive stonework, uninterrupted ‘Rooiklip' retainer wall facing Van Oudtshoorn Street, an antique wooden garage, old-worldly garden areas among shade and fruit trees (including lemon, lime, cumquat, fig, plum, apricot, papaja, apple, pear, peach, olive, pecan, pomegranate, and guava). It is not unusual to stumble upon artefacts of years gone by, while pottering in the garden. The veranda overlooking a self-maintaining, waterwise front garden, easily invites in-and-outdoor living. The lower level of the house comprises a traditional ‘voorkamer', leading to the dining room and well-equipped kitchen with separate scullery and laundry area to the back; and two en-suite bedrooms with modern bathrooms to the front. An original Oregon Pine staircase leads to an upper level with unobstructed views of the mountain and tree-tops, offering three spacious rooms. All wooden features have been preserved and/or restored.
