It is situated on the quiet side of the village, yet close to shops. Badge Hill watches over it. It is guarded by the trunk of an enormous gum tree, whose roots once reached through our floor and beyond; now a memorial to itself. We have just the right amount of neighbours and a clear view of the mountains across the fields from our front door.
The coming home feeling starts when you drive into your own carport. A level path takes you to the large latte covered porch and braai area. Relax in the large secluded garden which is fenced making it safe for small children and pets to run and play. There are nooks to relax and read and there is also has an open area to play. There are 2 lightweight folding garden loungers to seek out the best spots to chill. The large porch has space to wash down mountain bikes.
Enter through the kitchen stable-door into the modernized pine kitchen with electric 4-plate hob, Combi Grill-Oven-Microwave; kettle and toaster, basic cooking utensils and crockery and cutlery. The under counter fridge has a small ice compartment. The kitchen has a cosy dining area and leads into the lounge. When it’s chilly, snuggle up to the cob fireplace which heats up and radiates warmth. The renovations were done with accessibility in mind, so even though it doesn’t meet all requirements, space gives an easy flow of movement.
Off the hall area is a bathroom with full-sized bath with wall mounted shower; WC and washbasin. The romantic main bedroom has a queen-size bed, a built-in wardrobe and a shower and basin en-suite; and an oil heater in winter. The kitchen and bathroom have traditional reed ceilings.
Upstairs is the ‘Out of Africa’ mezzanine, with 2 single beds, a chest of drawers and hanging space, with a view of Badge Mountain.
