Take my money.
I’m a little short of the R17,5 million asking price for this beaut in Tierboskloof, Hout Bay, but I’m going in anyway.
Tierboskloof, for those who aren’t familiar with the republic, is a residential security nature estate on the slopes of the mountain.
As you can see from that snap above, it has breathtaking views down to the ocean, and the property itself is set in an indigenous garden.
More on the four-bedroom home via Property24:
4 Double en-suite bedrooms, lounge with fireplace, dining room, kitchen, scullery, breakfast nook with views of the bay, guest toilet, wine cellar, study, gym, storerooms, laundry, pool and many more quality features.
The estate offers a communal pool, tennis and squash court with changing rooms, showers and toilet facilities. The estate is access controlled with camera monitoring systems, electric fencing and a 24 hour security team.
How’s that view from the home office?
I would fight anybody who insisted I return to the office tooth and nail.
A quick look around inside:
The listing also adds that you can “either take the funicular to the front door or walk up the winding path enjoying the view as you go”.
A funicular to your front door? Wild.
I didn’t find any mention of that on the Tierboskloof website, but I did find this write-up:
Tierboskloof Estate borders onto the Table Mountain Reserve, offering a distinctive natural environment. Of the 8 200 plant species found here, approximately 80% of these are fynbos and many are endemic.
Natural waterfalls, indigenous forests, many bird species and plentiful fynbos are among the many delights that can be seen and relished here…
Uniquely, every home in Tierboskloof has unobstructed mountain and sea views. This is the result of careful management of architectural, landscaping and construction protocols to keep the aesthetic integrity intact.
Sjoe, that’s good living.
