the entire estate
Sandstone House is on a private 2 hectare farm in the quiet corner of Franschhoek (just over an hour’s drive from Cape Town) in the beautiful Cape Winelands region of South Africa. The house is set in a tranquil and peaceful setting with total privacy as it is surrounded by farmland with no through roads, but it is also in easy access to the village that is only 2km away.
The estate offers 8 luxurious bedrooms, all en-suite, with a large lounge, formal dining room with private wine cellar, family lounge, kitchen with large eating area, sunroom/conservatory that leads out onto the patio and magnificent gardens surrounding the house. There is also a study, hi-tech entertainer’s kitchen with walk-in cold room and exclusive intimate bar.
There are also a total of 3 private swimming pools on the property. The main one (outside the front of the house) is a 15m x 3m sparkling pool with large patio area around it. It leads onto several garden areas that are exquisitely designed and maintained with seating areas and beautiful artworks to admire.
There is also a tennis court and several pathways leading through the extensive gardens, including a beautiful rose garden, olive grove and vineyards.
The 360 degree views of the surrounding Franschhoek mountain ranges from a spectacular view that is unparalleled. There is “no visual pollution” to interrupt these magnificent views.
The house is a perfect holiday escape, or property for an intimate wedding, corporate function, photo or video shoot or private party as it offers abundant space to entertain and relax.
