This eclectic home where the owners added an artistic and creative flair making this a rejuvenating and relaxed
home draws one in from the moment you enter the property! With the essence of this home established in sought
after historic Melville, the antique blends seamlessly with the contemporary with its solid wood strip floors, bay
windows, wood and glass doors to patios, bohemian flair and splashes of sunshine and light that makes this a special
home for the creative minded and those seeking the avantgarde whilst offering an effortless happy flow of living
spaces and outside garden areas.
From the moment you enter the entrance hall, with its direct access to the double garage and with a guest cloakroom, you feel the warmth of the home and you fall in love with the welcoming open plan reception areas that invite you to a relaxed lifestyle of perfect balance in the open plan formal lounge, the family lounge, dining room, and kitchen. The slightly tucked away more intimate and more private formal lounge with bay window shares a lovely fireplace with the fabulous airy and light family room leading to the lazy patio under trees through wood and glass double doors set in a previous bay window changed to the current feature doors. The dining room with further double wood and glass doors to the same patio, but at the built-in braai, makes for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining with only a serving counter separating the dining room from the easy to work in the kitchen. The patio is filled with charm, cool air and soft dappled light under the lush green canopy of the trees adding romance and charm. The red mosaic inspired kitchen makes a statement and the solid wooden countertops add casual elegance to the kitchen. A gas cooker and well-planned workspaces will make you feel like a MasterChef! A cleverly separated scullery with an outside door to a small courtyard. Three very spacious bedrooms make the sleeping quarters very sumptuous. The second and third bedrooms offer lovely en-suite bathrooms with the second bedroom also offering a small dressing room.
