Want to buy in the sought-after Timour Hall pocket of Plumstead without breaking the bank? We have exactly what you are looking for!
From the outside, this comfortable semi-detached cottage may look unassuming, but it’s a completely different story inside. The beautiful handcrafted sleeper-wood front door opens to reveal a hard-to-believe 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home with a big enclosed entertainment area and surprisingly large water-wise garden.
The open-plan dining/living area and kitchen leads onto a sunny north-facing enclosed entertainment room with built-in braai: the perfect place to celebrate and connect with family and friends. The garden has a wooden deck overlooking lovely established trees and low-maintenance tidy beds, which are filled with beautiful indigenous plants. There is a shed and a large storeroom that could be turned into a work-from-home-office with an outside laundry or teen-pad.
The practical eat-in kitchen has an electric hob and oven and the adjacent indoor fireplace warms the whole house during the winter months, while providing a quaint, cosy atmosphere when it’s time to cuddle up on the couch with a good book or watch a movie. The two larger bedrooms are carpeted and both have built-in cupboards. The air-conditioned main bedroom is a peaceful retreat and has an ensuite bathroom with a generous shower. A key feature in the home is the modern not-your-average bunk beds: this is an ingenious solution to provide each child/guest with their own personal space, while keeping the floor free and making the rooms feel bigger. The 3rd bedroom can easily be converted into a study depending on your needs.
There are security bars on all the doors and windows of the main-house and tandem secure off-street parking for two cars. The home is equipped with prepaid electricity meter and a high-speed fibre installation. Living here is such a pleasure as it is situated in the well established Plumstead residential area and borders Wynberg and Constantia, as it offers the perfect balance between city and suburban lifestyle with amenities galore:
