What makes this home such a great buy?
Idyllic mountainside position at the end of a quiet street which is adjacent to vineyards with views over Paarl Gimnasium High and the Drakenstein valley. If fixing up homes is a passion of yours, this "Guggenheim" will be the perfect pet project!
Paarl is to many a pretty town. From up here it seems pretty small. But that’s the charm of this home. The living canvas that is the town changes character when viewed from the balcony of the top floor. During the early mornings the mountains seem diminished as the great ball of fire rises. Its glow washes out the uppermost peaks in bright white light. In the evenings the sun dips beyond the mountains of the west and casts the mountains in shades of red. It makes for a truly awesome sight whether you’re an early bird or a sundowner-type of person.
The upper floor (street level) is where you find the beautiful views as most of the house is made up of huge panes of glass. A bedroom with en-suite bathroom is off to the one side and the large entrance area stretches to the lounge and the entrance to the patio. On this floor you find a large study and two more bedrooms , one of which has an en-suite bathroom, and a separate bathroom as well.
Down the stairs is a second lounge which overlooks the garden, another bedroom, a large kitchen with modern finishes and a wash room, a cellar, and a glass sliding door that leads to a patio with built-in braai and the backyard. Here you also find a swimming pool.
Lastly, the property also has a domestic quarters and a full flatlet which require a fair amount of work.
