This authentic characterful Muizenberg cottage has been brought back to life by the current owner. The lively choice of colours chosen for both the exterior and interior of the property gives the home a warm and happy atmosphere. With the practical details carefully taken care of by installing plenty of built-in cupboards and other storage facilities.
There are high ceilings throughout the home and original Oregon Pine strip flooring which is in good condition. These are the hallmarks of the homes built in the early 1900’s in Muizenberg.
All 3 bedrooms are of a generous size and have west-facing windows allowing for plenty of natural light plus loads of very beautiful built-in cupboards.
The spacious living room is complete with a wood-burning stove/fireplace for those cold winter nights. The fireplace warms up more than just the lounge area, in fact, I am told it makes the house toasty and cosy.
The kitchen is a delight, with plenty of cupboards and storage plus a gas cooker which makes cooking seem like a treat. There is sufficient space for a breakfast table and chairs in the kitchen space. In addition, there is plumbing for both a dishwasher and washing machine.
The outdoor spaces have been beautifully crafted to create elegant outdoor living areas. The front verandah is suitably secured with a decorative wrought iron fence & gate which makes for a lovely indoor-outdoor reading space while soaking up the afternoon sun.
The back courtyard has been partly covered to create a formal dining space that can be used all year round.
The property is north-west facing which allows for sunlight throughout the day, the late afternoon sunshine & the setting sun warm up your back courtyard and outdoor dining area, while the morning and afternoon sun tempt you into spending your day on the front verandah. This home is protected from the prevailing wind thus you are mostly wind-free except of course for the winter north wind.
You will find the home is fitted with two well-appointed bathrooms – the main/family bathroom is complete with a bath, basin, shower, and a loo. The second bathroom comprises a tastefully decorated guest toilet and an outdoor shower.
There is adequate space for pets and children and of course, you are a hop, skip, and jump away from the Muizenberg Beach and Surfers Corner.
The property is situated in the Muizenberg Improvement District area – there are security cameras and regular patrols in the area by the MID patrollers for which each resident pays a nominal R160.00 per month included in your monthly rates bill.
Just to sum up the property has.
Most important there is a beach and a mountain on your doorstep.
In addition many restaurants and coffee shops are also on your doorstep in fact you will be spoilt for choice.
Joons family restaurant invites both children and dogs into the restaurant.
