CASE STUDIES - Zwaanswyk - Family Home
Asking price : 15 million ZAR.
Family home : Executive family home with large grounds (1 acre) and separate, stand-alone, guest cottage. Located within 10 minutes drive of Muizenberg beach and near Tokai forest, Zwanswyk borders Constantia and gives views of False Bay.
This American client had business interests in the African continent and was keen to be located nearer to his work, whilst giving his family an enviable lifestyle and American schooling.
This home was initially viewed on his first visit over, during which a number of different neighbourhoods were considered. Zwaanswyk in relatively unknown and yet gives large plots and homes right next to Constantia. The proximity of local vineyards, top SA schools and the American school and Embassy were also major advantages. The house, together with the two bedroom cottage which Space helped to renovate, gives 700m2 of internal living space and also provides a fantastic landscaped garden, expansive, covered entertainment decks, a koi pond and a generous swimming pool, all combined with an exclusive location.
With such a unique house, the negotiation was prolonged, as the sale was somewhat reluctant by the original owners. However, after many discussions, a final price was agreed within the clients budget of 15 million ZAR and the family moved in shortly afterwards.
