This beautifully constructed and elegantly furnished residence is surrounded by the magnificent panoramas of the Franschhoek valley. This magnificent estate spans 2 hectares of very secluded rural countryside in the foothills of the Franschhoek mountains, with access to Franschhoek’s Main Street just 2 kilometres away. The main villa is 1500 square metres in size, with a variety of large rooms on the ground floor for entertaining officially or casually. The architectural detail includes unusual vaulted ceilings, triple-volume entry halls, majestic fireplaces, and handmade ironmongery.
The four en-suite bedrooms are located upstairs and are well-appointed, taking full use of their own patios and balconies with spectacular mountain views. They also all have access to a casual family sitting space. On the ground level, there is a fifth apartment with its own door and private garden. There are additional staff quarters, 7-car parking, a formal rose garden, a floodlit tennis court, and three swimming pools. Borehole water irrigates the vineyards and orchards, and the generator is powered by automated systems. A second villa on the property provides exquisite comfort for visitors with two en-suite bedrooms, seclusion, and is planned and built in the same style as the main house.
The vineyard produces around 4000 bottles of Merlot each year, as well as 150 olive trees. Sandstone House is a gentleman’s farm and one of Franschhoek’s best properties, offering a distinctive way of life in Franschhoek.
