A look at the R32 million home converted from a 18th century winery

The historic Klaasenbosch Winery located in Constantia Upper and dating back to 1790 is on the market for a new owner.

The 2,949sqm plot is one of the original Cape Dutch buildings which date to the early wine farms in the area and has been converted into a spectacular five-bedroom homestead featuring one of the most unique interior designs on offer in the Cape, said Janine Stevenson of real estate agency Seeff.

Some of the most notable features include:

  • Traditional barn-doors in the entrance hall;
  • A double-volume living room with a feature wood-burning fireplace;
  • Built-in bar and doors opening onto the inner courtyard;
  • A billiard room and study and a separate laundry and scullery.

“The beautiful master-suite is the epitome of luxury, with its own lounge, indulgent ‘his hers’ dressing rooms, additional built-in wardrobes, a deluxe en-suite bathroom with a two-way fireplace and sliding glass doors into a conservatory with a private temperature-controlled swimming pool,” said Stevenson.

“The two dressing-rooms are easily convertible back into two bedrooms with a dedicated full bathroom, said Seeff.

“There is a further versatile guest bedroom or home office with adjoining en-suite bathroom and a private gym. The property also offers two garden cottages, staff accommodation, garaging and fabulous garden with a swimming pool and borehole.”

Constantia ranks in the top 10 most sought-after suburbs in the country for its exclusivity, scenic surrounds and rural quality and homes, especially in the Constantia Upper area where you will find large plots and sprawling mansions.

Property values have not only grown over the last ten years but have held firmly as the suburb has retained its allure even during periods of economic decline, said Seeff.
