Arabella - Home to Fynbos and Fine Living
Certainly one of the most luxurious residences on the world renown Arabella Country & Golf Estate, this end product of German building excellence offers open-plan living areas and accommodation suites with a wrap around uncovered patio downstairs and a grand balcony upstairs ensuring majestic views of the 16th green, a poplar forest, mountains, the Bot River Estuary and the distant coastline.
Enter through a double front door and be welcomed in the expansive entrance hall with lots of windows and a stairway leading to guest toilet and double automated garage on a separate upper mezzanine level. Two sets of stairs, separated by a lengthy landing, leads you into the enormous open plan living area consisting of a gourmet kitchen (with air conditioner, bar stools and counter, separate scullery, laundry and pantry, granite tops, built in double fridge, prep bowl and beautiful solid wood cupboards), dining room and lounge, both with open wood fire places with sand stone cladding and mantel pieces. The kitchen/dining area has double volume ceilings and the whole living area opens through aluminium doors onto tiled patio with magnificent views.
Also downstairs there is a generous bedroom, with sliding doors to the garden a separate bathroom, and an imposing formal study with arguably the best views of all the rooms on the ground level.
A stainless steel staircase to the upper level, with solid wooden steps, adds to the grandeur of this living area. To the side of the staircase the living area is connected through sliding doors to a sheltered atrium, with a fever tree in a central position, which not only blends in well with the interior but also offers a sunny and serene retreat.
On the upper level there are two grand master bedrooms, each overlooking the lagoon and the golf course and with en suite bathrooms.
