Magnificent estate with architecturally designed
home, up-market Umtentweni.
The above photo gallery is a mere glimpse of
the absolutely magnificent estate on offer in
the up-market residential Umtentweni, KwaZulu,
With an abundance of curbside appeal, the
architecturally designed lines of this home are evident, without
giving much away as to the actual extent of
the home once in the entrance portico.
A fusion of styles, this home has been
designed with a distinct breezy Malaysian cross traditional
Nestling extremely comfortable in an extensive
and lush sub-tropical garden, on a stand of 5300sqm in extent.
Not only is the garden lush, intriguing and
Zen like in ambience, it comes complete with a large sparkling swimming
pool, sea views of the Indian Ocean are
visible as part of the scenery on the eastern horizon.
From the roadside facade, there are two points
of access, a set of automated access gates on the paved
driveway, leading to the double lock up
garages and the second being the front entrance portico.
The deep front door entrance portico is
secured by large imposing custom built security gates that lead to
the actual front door entrance.
From the front door entrance, the eye is drawn
immediately to the views facing through this room, out over
the extensive patio and on to the lush gardens
From the entrance hall, the home give the
impression of meandering off in a few directions, with the spacious
reception rooms inter-leading, seemingly
randomly placed to each other, yet beautifully functional in the
year round sub-tropical climate.
Comprising a footprint of a formal lounge, TV
lounge, dining room, kitchen and scullery and patio, these rooms
have been cleverly worked to centre round the
deep all weather under cover patio.
Each of these reception rooms opens through
large glass doors onto
the gardens or the al fresco patio. This patio
is extensive enough to play host to both lounging chairs and an
As befitting this character filled home, the
window frames are wooden and bay window features add to the
all round aesthetic appeal, plus the formal
lounge boasts high vaulted ceilings with the exposed beams.
Mention has to be made of the kitchen, again a
fusion of styles, with gas hob, electric eye level oven and
fitted breakfast bar. Counter tops in this
eclectic fusion are the newest in 21st century "chem crete" design,
highly polished concrete surfaces. Off the
kitchen a large scullery keeps the mess of day to day living from
sight, and this room is large enough for all
Sleeping quarters in the main body of the home
comprise four bedrooms, with built in wardrobes and
Each of the bedrooms offers a rather unique
layout and views out over the extensive gardens.
The master bedroom boasts an exceptional en
suite bathroom facility, with slipper bath and vanity unit, plus
a separate wet room shower and toilet
The remaining three bedrooms share the
facility of the other two bathrooms, the first being a full bathroom,
the second a shower room.
Mention has to be made of the fourth bedroom,
a beautiful loft room with a private viewing deck.
In addition to the four bedrooms, an added
bonus is a fully self-contained flat, offering a footprint of lounge,
dining room, kitchenette, separate garden patio
and upstairs bedroom. An ideal and independent unit for either
aging grandparents or a teenager.
Back at the front door entrance portico, this
extensive homes flows off in yet another direction, with three
inter-leading rooms and bathroom facility. Yet
another opportunity to create a secure independent flat
within the home, or as a complete office suite
for home use.
After all the dizzying amount of detail above,
the hallmarks of this exceptional estate home, are the genius
of the flowing layout, a garden planned and
maintained to create an ambiance of tropical solitude, and the
fusion of style modeled round the main feature
of the home, that gorgeous all weather under cover outdoor
al fresco living room.
This extensive home estate offers that
indefinable X factor, in an up-market suburb, within a region renowned for
its year round sub-tropical climate and
literally a two minute drive to a long sweep of pristine coastline, or
a two minute drive to the business hub
of Port Shepstone.
Absolutely sublime !!!
