A PRECIOUS STONE AMONG OLD GEMS
Our little village has a rather charming blend of architectural styles and many other typical features of a 19th century agricultural settlement. As can be expected, the 20th century has influenced the landscape but our rich architectural heritage still strikingly reflects our social history – from the modest Karoo cottage, to high Victorian and even Georgian buildings – all equally impressive.
It also introduced an eclectic range of more recent architectural styles, one of which is to be found in Nuwe Street. Nuwe sums it up perfectly – inspired by light, space, traditional as well as contemporary architecture … this
divine complex with its contemporary volumes has graced many pages of prestigious architectural journals and interior style magazines.
This double-volume home offers multi-level living from the kitchen to the dining and living area, with a ramp to the mezzanine artist’s studio. The studio leads onto the roof-top entertainment area, which overlooks tranquil mountains and open Karoo plains; a fitting reminder of the landscape of old. The main house has two bedrooms which share a glorious bathroom with circular mosaic tiled bath/shower. Tap and shower fittings throughout the house are by legendary Danish designer, Arne Jacobsen. The kitchen has top of the range Miele appliances.
All the rooms in the main house lead onto an elegant, elongated lap pool surrounded by an indigenous Karoo garden with mature trees and an organic vegetable garden. Not foregoing its links to the past, you’ll also find a 4 star graded historical labourers’ cottage which is currently used to host guests for short or long term accommodation.
The fully renovated self-catering cottage with separate entrance and street parking faces both the street and the pool. The combination of modern house and traditional cottage create a unique courtyard space which is private from the street.
Ideal for family living, and a shining example of a modern Prince Albert home.
