Three-bedroomed Victorian-style beauty in Observatory

Nuttall Road runs straight through the middle of Observatory, Cape Town’s most bohemian suburb. On one end of Nuttall are the local supermarket, a favourite neighbourhood eatery, a meditation centre, and a pop up gallery. Take a stroll to the other end of Nuttall Road and you will find yourself looking out over the fields of Observatory Primary school.

Tucked between the bustle of Ob's life on one end and the mixed Victorian and Deco homes on the other end of Nuttall is #16: a large and lovely Victorian-style house that was actually built in 1925, and has been renovated with modern colours and classic style.

A wide covered veranda greets visitors upon arrival, and entry is through the beautiful wooden double front doors. The two large bedrooms are to the left and right, one with an en-suite bathroom with shower, and a walk-in closet, and the other with floor to ceiling built-in cupboards and a huge sash window.

Further down the hall, an study or TV room (which could become a third bedroom) and a glorious full family bathroom, complete with chandelier, slipper tub and outside shower. The solar geyser will keep the water temperature high and the electricity bill low.

The hallway flows into a huge open-plan living area which spans the width of the house, including a well-appointed and generous kitchen, dining area and lounge, and a wood-burning stove for cosy evenings.

It is at this point that a tour through 16 Nuttall reveals the piece-de-resistance, a backyard garden that is an entertainer’s dream. Multiple seating areas, a pizza oven and braai, and a solar-heated swimming pool are just waiting to welcome a buyer’s pandemic-weary friends, ready to celebrate the glorious Cape Town summer once again. Load shedding will not stop the fun, this property is equipped with a 3 kilo-volt backup battery.

With room for three cars in the large front driveway, this home offers the perfect balance of home, garden and amenities. Do not miss the opportunity to view.
