House in Boesmansriviermond

This luxury architecturally designed, Tunisian-styled residence, is located in the small holiday resort town of Bushmans River Mouth in the Eastern Cape. It lies on the banks of and overlooks, the Bushmans River estuary. It is situated approximately one from the river's mouth and the erf's eastern boundary corresponds to the coastal high water mark of the tidal river - with direct access to the river from the property. The house's aspect is north-east facing, ensuring optimal sunlight exposure both in summer and winter. The house position is sheltered and it is well-protected from the prevailing south-westerly winds as well as the south-easterly winds that sometimes blow from the sea. Twice a day the tidal river pushes up sea water approximately 30km inland.

It is sturdily built and structurally sound, with 2 double garages (interior face brick finished, with ceilings), 2 lounges (1 with fireplace), staff quarters (with shower, basin & toilet), dining room, kitchen, scullery, washing room, main bedroom (en suite), guest bedroom (with own shower & toilet), 3 other bedrooms (sharing bathroom), 1 outside bedroom and a boat house - from which a boat can be launched directly into the river. Outside areas include a viewing/tanning/braai deck with pergola, second braai area with pergola, 2 double parking pergolas for shaded parking for vehicles, and pergola on the main bedroom. The house is fully overgrown with Boston ivy, complementing the Tunisian architectural style of the house.

There is a 30 000 fresh rain water tank, supplied from a 5 000 litre intermediate rainwater tank, from which all collected rainwater is pumped. Toilets run on municipal water supply. The property is fully secured with an electrical fence, security gates, 24-hour armed response and security gates fitted to the main bedroom, to ensure maximal security at all times.

Truly an exceptional home!
