Original Stone Foresters Cottage with newly built contemporary wing and gallery/studio/second dwelling.

Renowned local and international artist's studio / gallery and residence combines old with new, marrying vintage with modern to create a laid-back vintage look, a little piece of heaven on earth masterfully having found a nuanced approach to balancing old and new. The original Stonehouse dates back as far as the mid- 18th century being built from the surrounding rocks and restored in 1994 with reed and beamed ceilings, travertine tiled floors, double insulated corrugated roof and shuttered windows were put in place. The Farm-style kitchen forms the hub of this part of the home with fully operational Aga stove running all winter keeping the entire home warm. Three bedrooms lead off the open plan living area with two having outdoor access, family bathroom and main en suite. The new wing flows effortlessly from the original dwelling opening up into a multi-functional area with excellent lighting, 8kw wood burner and plenty of interactive space. A guest suite occupies one side of the wing with outdoor access. Two offices / studies are positioned on the mezzanine floors above the scullery and guest suite, ideal for working from home. The second dwelling (153m²) is currently being used as a production studio / gallery with an imposing height and clever use of antique doors and window frames to allow “halos of light from the round, oval and arch windows making it feel like a sanctuary”. This oversized building can quite easily be converted into a generous second dwelling, work from home office space or sold off with the recently approved sub-division. The spacious 60m² under cover verandah preserves a magnificent 100 year old pepper tree and can quite easily be enclosed for more space. The wooden doors and windows are mostly bespoke, antique collectables, the 14kw fireplace warms the entire gallery, a green energy waste and grey water system has been installed. The property has a large variety of fruit and nut trees including almond, macadamia, pecan, apple, pear, apricot, peach, lemon, naartjie, pomegranate, granadilla, avocado, olive and tomato tree. There is a resident population of squirrels, guinea fowl - mostly in Winter, a beautiful mongoose, a Barn Owl, spotted Eagle owl, Fiery necked night jar now and again, resident Gymnogene, forest Buzzard, Batis family, Buntings, Twinspots, robins, bulbul's doves, Ibis, lots of chameleons, gecko's, golden moles, shrews and many more, make the property a fascinating place to be. There are endless options to turn this property into your dream home and a place to work from.
