When setting your eyes upon this grande dame, by the name of ‘De Oude Pastorie’, you might think it is a dream, it is indeed a dream: a real dream-house. Old-world charm, character and elegance are merely a few words poorly trying to bring justice to her timeless and classic beauty. The backdrop of this magnificent Victorian home, built in the late 19th century, are the captivating Langeberg Mountains, changing their colours through each enchanting day, in one of the oldest towns in South Africa: Swellendam. Through the serene gardens and the inviting decorative porch, is the prelude to a promise of building yet another unforgettable memory, whether it is a soireé, a romantic candlelight dinner, or reading a book in front of the fireplace. Just like a handkerchief, a parasol and a hat concludes the wardrobe of a lady from long gone Victorian times, so does this house’s superb and rich décor. The building is remarkably well preserved, the woodwork of the façade and wooden fretwork on the verandah particularly contribute to the appearance of authenticity.

This sophisticated property lies between the boundaries of two title deeds, consisting of 3898 square meters. Upon entering the property through automated cast iron gates, you are welcomed with a spectacular water feature in the centre of the picturesque landscaped country garden. The saltwater swimming pool, wood-fire pizza oven, and entertainment area is perfectly situated and very private under the large oak trees. When the days are cold and rainy, you will still be able to entertain friends and family in the separate patio with foldaway glass doors and a built-in fireplace.

The elegant entrance hall welcomes you to a gracious reception and living area, adjacent to the open plan farm-style kitchen, complete with another built-in fireplace. Enjoy real colonial-style living with a separate scullery, laundry and a walk-in pantry. The sophisticated family room showcases high ceilings and beautiful wooden floors. The ground floor has three en-suite bedrooms and a spacious study, perfect for a professional working from home. The beautiful handcrafted wooden staircase leads you to the second floor, consisting of two air-conditioned, luxury en-suite bedrooms, and a reading room & wine cellar, walking out on the balcony with beautiful mountain views. This area is rounded off with an original Victorian fireplace, perfect for a cold winter's day.

The garden cottage is spacious and perfect to utilise as a second dwelling, office, studio or to rent out as guest rooms. Consisting of three luxury en-suite bedrooms, all leading to a verandah overlooking the lush green garden and Koi pond. The French-style kitchen and lounge area with a romantic fireplace makes this cottage an absolute pleasure to live the good life in true country style. The separate, outside double garage completes the property and adds value, especially to the zealous motorcar enthusiast.
