We are privileged to offer this beautiful, characterful, and totally unique home for sale. This home has it all: a family home with a fireplace in 3 of the rooms, a separate apartment, sea and mountain views, a garden, and a double garage!
The property has been a much-loved home to the current owners for 26 years but now it is time for someone new to love and care for it while enjoying its artistic uniqueness.
The home is magical, taking you back in time to another era. Arts and Crafts I believe. It is set on the upper slope of a picturesque cobbled street.
The interior has unusual heritage finishes, such as moulded ceilings, striking brass work inset on the wooden panels of the formal dining room, original wooden floors, fireplaces and tiles, and arches that frame the views of the sea, mountain, village, and harbour.
Kalk Bay has much to offer, it is a close-knit community of like-minded people. The working fishing harbour adds to the uniqueness of the home and lifestyle. Where else can you stroll down to the harbour for your freshly caught fish of the day?
You are within walking distance of all the special places Kalk Bay has to offer, The Olympia Café, Dalebrook Pool, and Dalebrook Café – an easy walk to the St James Tidal Pool and Danger Beach.
Wander the streets and get to know the locals, browse the antique shops and book shops. Pop in for a coffee on your way to the bakery for your favourite freshly baked treats. There are also plenty of watering holes, pizza joints, and famous restaurants on the seafront.
The property itself offers a very spacious family home with various entertainment areas, both formal and informal. There are three bedrooms in the main house (the downstairs flatlet has an additional two bedrooms), all with built-in units, the very spacious main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, dressing room, a bank of built-in cupboards, and a cosy lounging corner. The 2nd bedroom is in a quiet corner of the house, fitted with an interesting blend of cupboards and has a very nice study area. The 3rd bedroom is currently used as a study thus fitted with many bookshelves and cupboards.
The entrance hall leads to a formal living area to the right and a less formal sunroom to the left with spectacular views of the ocean, mountains, and village. The formal dining room is wood panelled with views through to the sea and leads into a study nook and patio which has been extended to include an outdoor eating deck with views across the bay.
The charming kitchen is fitted with special details in the style of the cupboards, and has views of the mountain and glimpses of Kalk Bay village.
PLUS, downstairs you will find an appealing area to use as a workspace, studio, guest quarters, or as an Air BnB option.
You could even run your business from the completely separate downstairs unit. The apartment includes 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a study, and plenty of other versatile spaces.
PLUS PLUS, beautiful garden space for children and pets.
The spacious cellar completes the picture.
