Home in Hanging Meadow for sale

This five bedroom four bathroom home in Hanging Meadow in Hout Bay is on the market at a price of R12,95 through Knight Frank Residential SA.

Homes in estates in Hout Bay are much in demand, and one that has come on the market now through Knight Frank Residential SA, at a listed price of R12,95 million, should be no exception, says Matt Mercer of Knight Frank’s Hout Bay branch.

Hanging Meadow, a 26 home estate, borders the Table Mountain National Park and is at the start of Hout Bay side of Chapman’s Peak Drive, says Mercer. Homes in this estate sell between R8 million and R15 million, with the average being around R10 million.

Residents here benefit from being a stone’s throw from numerous hikes on mountain trails as well as the scenic picnic sites on Chapman’s Peak Drive. It is an easy five minute walk to Hout Bay beach and the many restaurants and coffee shops the area boasts.

The views from this home take in the whole of the bay as well as the valley, and the generous proportions of the three level house make this an exceptional home.

The house is unusual in that it is geared towards families with older children who can have their bedrooms on the ground floor while the main bedroom (with its own study) is on the top floor, or the bottom bedrooms could be used as guest accommodation as they open directly onto the garden and pool area.

The living, dining, kitchen and main entertainment areas are on the second level, with a feature bar and a fully enclosed patio with stack-back glass doors. The dining room has floor to ceiling glazing and takes in views of The Sentinel as well as the bay itself. The kitchen is positioned so as to enjoy the views while preparing food and enjoying a relaxed meal at the breakfast nook facing out to sea.

There is a separate flatlet above the garage and separate staff accommodation. Unusual too, as far as estates go, said Mercer, is the abundance of parking. There is garaging for two cars and further off-street parking for four cars.

“Much thought has been given to comfort with the large bedroom and living spaces and to maximising the views,” said Mercer. “There is even a porthole window in the study that enables you to look at the ocean every so often while working to relax the mind. Anyone living here would feel hard-pressed to leave home.”
