Situated on a small stand of only 287 square metres, this compact double storey home is geared for that smaller family on the move! Within walking distance of the famous SACS and Westerford schools, there is also easy access to the Newlands shopping centre and restaurants as well as the M3 through to the University of Cape Town, and Cape Town city itself. An entrance hall directly off the street offers one that extra layer of security, and leads into an airy and light open plan kitchen, dining and living room area, with large, top quality black floor tiles and bronzed aluminium sliding doors and windows. A convenient kitchen island looks over a beautiful fully fitted kitchen with cherry wood units and dark granite tops, electric hob and oven. A small scullery offers space for dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, and leads out to a small outdoor courtyard with its umbrella washing line. There is also a guest cloakroom on the ground floor, and the large double garage with automated door offers direct and safe access into the house as well as extra storage space, and a door giving gardener access into the small north-facing garden. The dining area adjoining the kitchen receives extra light from a double volume skylight. The living room has been fitted with an air conditioner for those hotter days , and bulkhead lighting offers interesting lighting effects. Sliding doors leads onto a covered patio which looks over a small, private lawned garden area. This in turn boasts an outdoor jacuzzi, as well as a wall-mounted outside shower with both hot and cold water! A ground floor, carpeted en suite bedroom which leads off the living room area also has access to the garden via a sliding door. Ample mirrored built in cupboards, and air conditioning, adds to the room's comfort. The en suite bathroom features a corner bath as well as a large shower area, all clad in interesting tiles. Upstairs a second carpeted has windows on two sides, offering ample light, and unusual pink-coloured built in cupboards. A separate family bathroom is across the landing, equipped with a generous shower. Also upstairs the main bedroom is reached via a convenient, tiled family room area, which can also be used as a study. The bedroom itself is carpeted and airconditioned, with mirrored built in cupboards and a raised pedestal for the double bed, and a modern walk-in bathroom area with very large shower room.
