Mediterranean-style home in sought-after Spanish Farm ideal for dual living


Michael James Organisation, in association with Monique Damseaux Properties, will bring to auction a Mediterranean-style residence in the sought-after Somerset West suburb of Spanish Farm this month.

No. 1 Picasso Close, Spanish Farm, Somerset West - also known as Erf 9292, Somerset West - will be auctioned on site at 11.15am on Saturday, 21 May, according to the auction house’s Andrew James. 

Situated in the “mink and manure” belt of Somerset West, the fine property, which is located high on a hill, offers “everything one would desire in a home, with the emphasis on position - including the sea and mountain views typical of the area,” James says.

Located close to Spanish Farm is the Helderberg Nature Reserve, a bird lovers’ paradise, covering 245 hectares of indigenous fynbos vegetation, with walks and trails to suit both leisure walkers and serious hikers.

The Helderberg Farm Trail close to Stellenbosch has beautiful views across the valley as far as Cape Town.

With a separate cottage and a large stand measuring 2 014m², the property on offer is ideal for dual living, James adds.

The main house includes four bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms; a family bathroom; a guest cloakroom; a lounge; a dining area; a family room; a study; an open-plan kitchen and a laundry.

It also has two sizeable terraces, a braai patio, a private pool and four garages.

The cottage comprises a bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and a living area that includes a fireplace.

The home may be viewed between 2pm and 4pm on Sunday, 15 May, and from 10.30am on the morning of the auction.

James recommends that potential purchasers visit www.michaeljames.co.za, web reference 2479, where the conditions of sale pertaining to the property auction are available as a download.
