The house is a three bedroom - two bathroom house but there is a beautiful cottage on the same property should you need four bedrooms and three bathrooms!
Main house consists of three beautiful double bedrooms with two bathrooms (one ensuite), rented out individually, available in and old style South African house. Oregan Pine floors, pressed iron ceilings, fire place in dining room and living room, fully equipped kitchen.
The house, which sits on a hill, opens up from the living room onto a large beautiful deck nestled in trees and over looking the garden.
Each bedroom is decorated with beautiful artwork, and include queen size beds, small desks with chairs and cupboards.
The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with doors leading out to garden and to a private outdoor shower beneath a large old Jacaranda tree.
The second bedroom, beautifully decorated, with a queen size bed and a in-room sink, has a view onto the garden.
The second bathroom includes a shower, sink and toilet.
There is ample closet space and shelves in the house. A security gate exists between the living area and bedrooms so you can sleep peacefully.
Included in the house are satellite TV, Alarm system connected to armed response and WIFI. Laundry and cleaning of cottage included once a week. Laundry at an extra cost.
We are a 10 minute walk from the vibrant and trendy 7th street in Melville. Melville, the cultural hub of Johannesburg, is well known for it's coffee shops, restaurants and lively nightlife.
There is public transport but it is best and quite cheap to rent a vehicle. Johannesburg is a huge city with vast number of things to see. While you can walk to a few places, most of the time a vehicle would be needed (taxi or rental). Also you cannot walk around at night for security reasons.
I have four dogs... who will give a very warm and LOUD welcome to the house but then settle down and get on with their own thing... if you have a problem with dogs please let me know and we will try to make arrangements.
