Property Description

This concrete embedded home on the water’s edge offers 3 sweeping open plan floors of Ocean, Mountainside and Marina views in the most sought after location of the Marina, a private jetty with direct access to the ocean, non-slip porcelain tiled patio and swimming pool (filled with sea water feeding into the marina, and fresh water shower beside), this “lock up and go” home on a grand scale features private amenities, location and views so scarce only a very few homes worldwide can compare.

Three of the four en-suite bedrooms have ocean, harbour entrance and mountainside views while the fourth has a view across the Marina and mountainside, upon a solid foundation; 42 concrete piles 3 meters deep, 400 millimetres wide secure this home to the bedrock below.
This home has an alarm system monitored by a private security company along with the 24/7 security supplied by the Harbour Island Marina. Airconditioning and heating throughout. Ironwood and Kiaar wood furniture (manufactured railway sleepers) are included in the sale.

Ground floor: three automatic garage doors and glass front doors lead into the home at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, one garage door leads through a pantry into the kitchen.
A slightly elevated kitchen surrounded by granite worktops, rosewood cupboards, stainless steel appliances and dumbwaiter elevator (to the floors above) adjoin an open plan dining room and sitting room which almost bring the view indoors when a wall of aluminium floor to ceiling glass doors fold in and lead out onto a patio and pool area with breathtaking views. An en-suite bedroom and guest bathroom are just down the hall.

First floor: a very large living room area and bar, three en-suite bedrooms (one of which is the master bedroom with its sumptuous walk in closet and skylight for natural light). Like the rest of the home the views are uninterrupted with floor to ceiling glass windows and aluminium frames held in with solid reinforced concrete walls. Many skylights allow volumes of light onto this floor’s living room, bedroom, bathrooms and open spaces to the ground floor below. In keeping with the scale of the home each bathroom is spacious with fantastically large frameless glass showers, separate bath tubs, porcelain tiles, heated floors and Hansgrohe taps (throughout the home).

Second floor: An open air room at the top of the first floor stairs and bathroom open wide onto a vast rooftop patio with just about 360 degree views; follow the view up and down the coastline, the boats in and out of the marina and the full extent of the surrounding mountain range.

Gordon’s Bay is a small idyllic seaside town on the Eastern edge of False Bay in the Western Cape, in the popular, picturesque region of Helderberg, and the winelands. The area lives up to its reputation of "Everything's here - everything's near", located just 25 minutes from the Cape Town International Airport, and 40 minutes from the famous "mother City of Cape Town".
The climate is Mediterranean and has some of the best beaches in the Cape, beautiful white sand, rock pools, shallow paddling areas. Local Bikini Beach has just been awarded Blue Flag status. As a result of Indian Ocean currents the sea is much warmer here than you will find at the Atlantic beaches such as Clifton/Camps Bay.Like the nearby Hermanus, Gordon's Bay is known for its whale watching and Dolphin sightings.
Two harbours and plenty of accommodation, the area abounds with excellent restaurants, shopping malls and amenities.

This property is located in Harbour Island, Gordon's Bay Marina, which describes itself as: Millionaires playground. Yachtsmen's paradise. Harbour Island offers the best of both worlds - a slice of Cape tradition spiced with a taste of the Mediterranean.
Waterfront, Island, Beachfront properties and Villa Via Harbour's Edge Hotel.
For The Investor, The Boating Enthusiast, The Holiday Maker, or The Retired or Semi-Retired.
