CASE STUDIES - Constantia - A Place to Retire
Asking price : 4.5 Million ZAR.
This four bedroom, four bathroom, Cape Dutch home in rural Constantia has large landscaped garden of half an acre, high ceilings and a covered external entertainment area overlooking the pool. Additionally there is a separate office and excellent security features.
Our European client sought a holiday home which would eventually be used for his retirement, having visited Cape Town many times in the past. The brief was to find a home with character, of which, sadly, numbers are in decline. Budget was up to 7 million ZAR.
Of the three Cape Dutch homes found, along with a number of other properties with distinctive, iconic architecture, this house, along with itís rambling lawns stood out. Itís open plan, renovated layout give great space internally offering the possibility of up to 6 bedrooms if needed, one of which occupies itís own wing, providing a guest suite if needed.
This property was already keenly priced at 4.5 million, and Space achieved an additional 6% reduction. Space also managed the ongoing rental for the original owner and the subsequent management of the house in the absence of our client.
