Though conveniently situated close to town centre, the lush garden setting with well established trees gives a country feel and encourages lots of birdlife.  The comfortable wooden deck overlooks the garden and pool and is protected by a slatted roof to encourage outdoor living.  Inside, the kitchen / lounge /dining area is a lovely open plan space with stairs leading down to a large basement study and storage area.  Entrance to the property is safe and secure with a remote controlled electric gate from the street and short driveway into the double garage with a side door into the scullery.

Our neighborhood:

Grahamstown is home to Rhodes University, a number of well known schools as well as the annual National Arts Festival in June/July.  An historic town established over 200 years ago, it boasts several National Monuments including the cathedral of St Michael and St George.  It is surrounded by unspoilt and spectacular scenery with thousands of hectares devoted to nature and game conservation.  Excellent game-viewing including the Big Five is virtually on the doorstep.  The beautiful beaches of the Sunshine coast are a mere 60 kms away, such as the coastal resorts of Port Alfred and Kenton.
