Noordhoek (part of the Southern Peninsula) is a relaxed and laid back community nestled at the back of Table Mountain in a valley surrounded by mountains and the sea. You will find many runners, cyclists (road and mountain) and horse riders enjoying the beautiful environment. The enticing Noordhoek farm village has exceptional restaurants, night markets and live music entertainment. Noordhoek is a 30 minute drive to the main City Centre of Cape Town where you can explore the renowned V & A Waterfront, Sea Point Promenade, bars, restaurants and nightlife and the well known beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. Cape Town is regarded as one of the world's most beautiful cities with access to stunning beaches, world-renowned wine farms, excellent restaurants, bars and entertainment, walks, runs and biking, all within an hour of our home.
We live in a gated eco-security estate (Lake Michelle). We love to leave all the front doors and windows wide open, night and day, to enjoy the sounds of the water and the bird-life. Our house is at the end of a secluded close and right on the waters edge. As we are the last house on a promontory, the home is very private and feels like you are on your own island, complete with 2 established palm trees. Access the fresh water lake from our private jetty - swim, fish, and kayak and enjoy the spectacular view of Chapman's peak while fish jump out of the water in front of you and birds/ducks fly or swim across the lake.
The house itself is modern and open plan, with large, sun-protected, glass stacking doors in the living, dining room and main bedroom areas to maximise the feeling of being integrated with the garden and the lake. The well equipped kitchen opens onto the dining and living area to maximise the flow of integrated living. Three bedrooms, all en-suite (king main bedroom, queen 2nd room, and 2 single beds in the 3rd room) and a separate study/TV room with a leather sofa bed (queen) that is very comfortable as extra sleeping space. Guest toilet. 2 lovely covered patios - the first with an outside table (seats 10 for enjoying dining overlooking the lake) and equipped with a Weber gas barbecue and the second, a relaxed and comfortable veranda with sofas for evening cocktails overlooking the pool and lake.
