This character-filled home in Vöelklip, whose past intertwines with several key figures in Cape history, offers modern comfort ideal for both relaxed family living and entertaining.
The house occupies a large seafront erf with sweeping views across Walker Bay and the surrounding mountains and is the ideal setting for your well deserved Hermanus vacation.
The house now belongs to a discerning Cape Town family who have used their considerable talent and impeccable taste to lovingly restore and refine it into the wonderful warm and elegant home it is today. The home boasts re-claimed Oak floors, open eaves beneath immaculate thatched roofs, high quality craftsmanship throughout and walls over a metre thick that offer cool in the heat of summer and cosy warmth in the depths of winter. Interiors have been stylishly upgraded while maintaining a sense of the home’s unique past and include character-filled spaces for both public entertainment and private family time.
The Main Homestead offers three en-suite bedrooms as well as a farm-style kitchen, dining room, library and family room, plus a spacious lounge which leads out onto a vine-covered patio. Separate from the main house is a substantial Garden Cottage with another two en-suite bedrooms and a double garage with a stylish one bedroom flat above. Rolling park-like gardens have been immaculately maintained, and include a number of mature trees.
