This property positioned above road level on a rectangular site comprises an older Victorian Style double storey dwelling with an adjoining chapel and a separate double storey outbuilding. There is ample yard and garden area at the front and rear of the property that is landscaped and well maintained, which also allows for the possibility of further development. The first floor of the main dwelling provides city views, sea views and views of the residence of the President of South Africa.
The property is located in an elite, upmarket and peaceful area of Morningside. It is accessed via a paved driveway off Chaceley Place to a tarred parking area and the front of the property overlooks Havelock Crescent. Adjacent to the pedestrian entrance of the property from Chaceley Place, parking for three vehicles is available within a triple automated lock up garage.
The property is secured with palisade and electric fencing at the front and concrete walls to the sides. The entrance of Chaceley Place has a 24-hour security boom gate and hut which has been very efficient for a number of years. The main dwelling is fully alarmed. The architectural style of the main dwelling includes multiple, distinct variations that deserve a critical look, which is an eclectic interpretation of old architecture.
The ground floor comprises of a decent size rustic laid out kitchen with oak built in cupboards and granite tops. Both the kitchen, laundry and the scullery/pantry have authentically been restored but still has the simple look. The wide passage ways lead to the dining room, a formal lounge and to a TV lounge. The flooring is either carpeted or wooden flooring which gives character for many years to come. The ground floor of the main dwelling further comprises of a dedicated chapel supported by a large study room and library room creating elegance and a spaciousness of warmth. The first floor comprises of five bedrooms and a general full bathroom (shower, bath and toilet). The main master bedroom has a full en-suite (bath, shower and toilet), walk in closet and dressing room. Note that only three bedrooms have air-conditioners and built in cupboards.
The flatlet is positioned above the triple garage. This flatlet is totally independent from the main dwelling and comprises two bedrooms with an open plan lounge/kitchenette and bathroom. It should be noted that all movable items do not form part of the sale of the property. The property underlies AMAFA regulations.
