2 Acres of tranquil garden sanctuary in Richmond
Nestled between the neatly kept trees and shrubs, on 7002sqm (almost 2 acres), lies this beautiful face brick 3 bedroom family home. Immaculacy kept for over 40 years by the same owners, they have looked after & maintained every aspect of the garden & home.
Wind your way around the garden path and through the double cottage pane doors into the warm, light & bright front lounge & tv room. A sunny little study lies to the right, as well as a guest bathroom and walk-in closet storage, affectionately known as the "games room". The tv lounge leads into the formal lounge and dining room, fitted with original parquet wooden flooring and fireplace in the formal lounge. Invite the outdoors in by opening up the double doors in the formal lounge onto the patio which overlooks the family friendly garden and green, green grass! The large airy dining room flows perfectly right into the kitchen, ideal for entertaining.
The spacious kitchen has room to house every appliance your heart could desire, and some! As well as space for a family breakfast table and chairs. The separate laundry & staff room are conveniently located though the back door, allowing quick access even for those last minute late night washing cycles!
The bedrooms are all through the next door, which can be locked at night. There are two well sized guest bedrooms, one with built in cupboards & parquet, the other has room for a large armoire and is carpeted. The guest bathroom includes a large bath & modern basin vanity, with a separate loo. The main bedroom has masses of built in cupboards, parquet flooring and the large window overlooking the garden. The main en suite bathroom was added more recently and is complete with large shower, bath, basin & toilet.
The club house or "man cave", complete with custom bar + gentleman's office, + lock-up garage/workshop = a happy husband! The current owner also envisaged transforming this into a little granny flat as there is a toilet (plumbing) as well as a carport which would make for a lovely veranda.
The property of course features the most beautiful garden around with a huge variety of plants, flowers, trees & fruit trees. The main gate is automated and the front fence is palisaded. There is an approximately 16sqm wooden workshop further down in the garden used for wood work or welding, and has electrical points if required.
A lovely property, in the heart of a quiet residential area of Richmond -with just so much to offer. A must see, by appointment only and we prefer subject to finance affordability and pre-approval as well.
Richmond currently has 2 shopping centres, with a SuperSpar & Boxer, post office, bank and a few well known shops like Jet, Pep, Dunnes etc. As well as a few fast food outlets & our renowned Blackwood Nursery & restaurant which offers a fantastic breakfast, lunch or coffee. I find all my essentials are easily found locally, as well as having our own pharmacist & doctors, Richmond has all it needs. We also have a big variety of churches and places of worship. For anything special, Pietermaritzburg is just 35kms away.
