Just a short walk from the palm-fringed beach, the house boasts four bedrooms, a lovely entertainment area and lounge with open-plan kitchen and sunny terrace with private swimming pool. 

One immediately feels at home on entering the property, which houses the bedrooms on the ground level and the living areas and terrace on the upper level. A double garage lies beneath the house and is easily accessed via a staircase from the ground level. 

The property features three full size bedrooms and one half-sized bedroom with a single bed and dedicated bathroom. The master bedroom is spacious and welcoming, with a queen-size bed and beautifully refurbished wooden floors. A walk-in closet links the bedroom to the tiled en-suite bathroom, which houses a large shower, corner bathtub, bidet and twin vanities, and the room opens out onto the front patio of the house. 

The second bedroom has a queen-size bed with en-suite bathroom and shower, while the third room offers three single beds and a large en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. The fourth bedroom is a small enclave with a single bed, chest of drawers and fan – ideal for an au pair or babysitter staying over – and has the use of a dedicated bathroom with a shower that can also serve as a guest toilet on the ground level. All bedrooms have ample cupboard space and can access a cozy, covered patio and private courtyard at the back of the property. 

The second level of the house is home to the spacious living and dining areas and open-plan kitchen – all of which take up the entire second floor and are flooded with natural light from the terrace. The kitchen is a modern delight, with a high marble breakfast counter and four stools, which runs into a cooking and serving counter. Deluxe amenities abound, including a washer/dryer, dishwasher, double fridge with ice-maker, two microwaves and a Nespresso coffee machine. 

A dining table for 10 people sits adjacent to the kitchen and the lounge is a picture of comfort, with plush couches, thick carpets and a flat screen television and DVD player. The living areas flow out onto the terrace, which has a plunge pool, barbeque area and outdoor dining for eight, as well as lovely ocean and mountain views. 

A short walk will take you to the beach front which features a host of restaurants, bars, and cafés to dine at, and Table Mountain Cableway and the V&A Waterfront are just a 15-minute drive away.
