Built by the Silvie family in 1903, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Edwardian home features spacious rooms, high moulded ceilings, sash windows and shutters, old oregon pine floors throughout, original fire places, secluded front patio and a family kitchen that flows onto the back patio and scenic garden.
The original 4 roomed house was extended in 1930 to include bathrooms and a bigger kitchen and was lovingly restored in the 1980's by the Mackenzie's who added to the kitchen a carved wooden counter that served in the long-gone Muizenberg Hotel and screenings on the kitchen walls of historic photos depicting the arrival in the Cape of the first settlers. The current owner has just renovated SHH to enhance enjoyment of the mountain views including a spectacular view from the back patio of the Devil's Peak, Table Mountain and Lion's Head as an amphitheatre, with the Mother City nestled at its feet. Caught between Queens and Brownlow Roads and protected from direct street noise, SHH offers tranquil living despite its proximity to the city centre.
The 'Daily Deli' is a short walk away, as is trendy Kloof Street with the Lifestyle centre, shops, movie theatres, restaurants and gym. SHH is a mere five minutes from the popular V&A Waterfront and just three minutes from the breathtaking beaches of Camps Bay. It is 5 minutes from Cape Town city centre, museums, and the new Convention Centre. Cape Point Nature Reserve is a 40-minute drive away, as are the famous Cape wine-growing areas of Stellenbosch and Paarl. Cape Town international airport is a 30 minute drive. No smoking, No animals
