Best position in Knysna - live with your toes in the water!
Such a special spot! Rarely does a property
such as this 'state of the art' home come on to the market. This unique
property for sale right on the Knysna lagoon, has beautiful, quality finishes
throughout. Built to entertain, with 60 m lagoon frontage, this property is a
delight to all who live, play or visit it! The property is nestled close to an
enormous wild fig (Ficus Natalensis) and has gorgeous views of both Heads and
Outeniqua Mountains with its toes dipped in the lagoon. On entering the home
through the large glass front door, one immediately gets a sense of space in
the large double volume entrance hall. All the downstairs rooms lead off of
this central point with stunning views of the water from each room. There is a
large Morso fireplace in the lounge which heats up the whole open plan area.
The large kitchen is in the heart of this home and one feels connected to what
is happening in the rest of this lovely house while in the kitchen. The well
designed pub is small and intimate with direct access outside through sliding
doors. Enjoy sipping sundowners while watching the sun set and as darkness
falls, the fairy lights of town reflecting off the lagoon.
The large sunken lounge has surround sound and seated there, one feels as though one is floating on the water when the tide is in. There is a breakfast table in a portion of the open plan kitchen and a separate area which could be used as a formal dining area although the outdoor dining table is situated close to the kitchen. There is a guest loo and a large guest suite with a walk in cupboard also on the ground floor, together with direct access via the kitchen to the double garages with automated doors. Upstairs contains the most luxurious master bedroom with a large dressing room and huge bathroom. Wake up each morning to the sound of lapping waves and to the most breathtaking views of Knysna from the patios leading off of the master bedroom. On this level, there is a study with a 'dark room' - this space could be turned into a third bedroom en-suite if so desired. Also on this level, but with access from outside is a separate self contained bachelor flat with bathroom and kitchen. Alongside the property, is an extra large boat shed which enabled boats to have direct access to the Knysna lagoon via its own slipway. The slipway now forms part of the garden, however this feature may well be able to be re instated? There is a borehole and an automated irrigation system in the attractive garden. For position, ease of living, security and lifestyle, this home is hard to beat!
