Situated in the quiet streets of Barrydale this charming property for sale, renovated to a high standard, is one of the oldest houses in the village. With panoramic views from the front stoep across the fields and river to the village of Barrydale and surrounding mountains, this home has a definite country air and ambience.
What strikes you when you first enter this Barrydale home is the incredibly high wooden beamed ceilings which have that definite ‘wow factor’ and supports chandeliers in each of the main rooms – apart from the kitchen.
French windows, all with safety glass, lead out onto the front and back stoeps from the lounge and dining area. The 3rd bedroom and kitchen have glass doors leading out to the back stoep whilst the 2nd bedroom glass double doors to the front stoep.
All windows in the house are fitted with white wooden American shutters.
The main bedroom is full en-suite with a Victorian bath and original Victorian brass shower/tap fittings. The bedroom and bathroom have fitted wardrobes. There is a shower room and toilet which is shared by the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. All three bedrooms accommodate double beds (the main accommodating a king size). There are fitted wardrobes in the 3rd bedroom as well.
The lounge and front room are interchangeable with a wood burning fire for those chilly Karoo winter evenings. In the summer move the furniture around to face the garden and the mountain at the back.
This, as mentioned, is one of the oldest properties in the village and the original features have been preserved where possible. One original klip wall has been exposed in what was the old stable and is now the 2nd bedroom. Parts of the original mud walls have been preserved and exposed as a feature in the lounge and dining areas.
Wander through the pathways of the rear garden which has been planted with indigenous plants and flowers. Relax on the back stoep and look past the small pond to the mountains beyond which catch the last rays of the sun going down colouring both mountains and garden with a pink hue.
If you are looking for a home with lots of character and charm then this is it! It is individual and like no other in Barrydale.
Considered to be one of the safest villages in the Western Cape, Barrydalers are used to living with no burglar bars and being able to walk the streets with relative safety. This is how village life was, is and should be!
