About this listing
Designed by a prominent Architect, the home features a graduation of materials, glass, wood and steel. The use of high stackable glass doors brings the lush forest feel into the house, mirroring nature, and is the perfect bridge between indoors and outdoors.

This 6 tiered split level house allows each of the primary areas: the eating, living and sleeping spaces, to have autonomy from one another while giving each a connection to the adjacent outdoor with timber decks and private views onto the mountains and lake, a nature lover's delight.

The living areas create an intimate feel and will invite you to sit and linger long after dinner, the only movement coming from the flickering light of the fireplace.
The kitchen has a warm look and feel and extending out onto the deck allowing you to sip your java while reading the morning paper.

This abode is all about the natural aspects and earthy appeal with the abundant windows creating open and bright spaces allowing flow and extension into nature.

The property boasts extra features such as a braai room/entertainment area with direct access to the solar heated pool, a cellar/'man cave' with adjoining bathroom, a huge pantry, abundant under house storage areas and its own top-notch security system.

A variety of high-quality timber has been used - Teak hardwood floors, Spruce balustrades, Meranti shutters and Mahogany structural beams. The Spruce roof structure was erected by Swiss Master roof builders.

Some outside features include: tiered, established indigenous garden; properly fenced off and pet friendly; covered private patio with raised fire pit; irrigation system with perennial supply from the nearby dam.

Wedderwill is a tranquil Lifestyle Country Estate with beautiful unspoiled views of the Hottentots Holland Mountains and Vergelegen Wine Farm and Estate. Here nature is your neighbour and the estate offers privacy and the sense of inclusiveness with the outdoors - hiking trails, mountain bike tracks, bridle paths and stabling for horses. This home is situated within the Glades Game Park with resident Springbuck and abundant bird life including Cape Francolin, Spotted eagle owl and a pair of Blue Cranes.

The adjoining Private Game Reserve is home to Burchells Zebra, Leopard, Wildebeest and many antelope species.

Wedderwill Country Estate offers state of the art security, fenced borders, camera surveillance, controlled access and 24-hour patrol. The Estate is close to fine dining restaurants, namely Waterkloof and Idiom.
