Urban Oasis in the heart of Observatory

Blake Street sits below the bustle of the boutiques and cafes of Observatory, Cape Town’s hippest suburb. Across the road from 10 Blake Street is a business park, housing cottage industries and artists' studios . This park is scheduled for an upgrade over the next year, and will soon add coffee shops, juice bars, eateries to its offering.

Tucked into a cocoon of privacy behind a white wall and thick hedge, is a beautiful old Victorian, built in 1891. Much of the interior has been opened up and modernised, and a pool has been added to the front garden for lazy summer days on the veranda.

Wooden floors, bay windows and working fireplaces remain in place..

To the right of the front door is the a lounge, complete with working fireplace, which flows through to the family TV room.

To the left of the front hall are the bedrooms, generous with high ceilings, and built-in cupboards in the second bedroom.

A family snug has been created around a wood burning stove in the kitchen and dining area, which stretches across the back of the home The ceiling of the kitchen area is light and bright, with clear roof sheets overhead, and a butcher block worktop surrounds a large European-style gas stove. Communal meals and laughter around the long dining table are inevitabilities in this happy space.

The family bathroom has a wonderful corner tub which overlooks the private kitchen courtyard. Across the courtyard is the studio of the artist owner. This space could easily be upgraded and provide an opportunity for dual living or AirBnB income.

Generations of families have lived in this home., but there are many stories still to be told here. Contact Us to arrange a viewing.
