In a joint auction venture with WH Auctions, Park Village Auctions will bring to market a “magnificent” multi-storey family home with panoramic views of Northcliff.
“Akin to a French Villa, residents would hardly feel that they in one of Johannesburg’s most affluent areas, but rather nestled in a European chateau,” says Roy Lazarus, who further describes the home as “well-kept and stately”.
According to Roy, the property’s generous size, features, and proximity to numerous world-class amenities make it an object of desire for seasoned investors.
Number 198A Frederick Drive, Northcliff, is set astride portion 2 of ERF 331, measuring 1 350 square meters. From a grand portico entrance, the home opens on the upper ground level, which features a double-volume foyer, a guest cloakroom, a formal lounge and fireplace, a dining room, a TV lounge with a second fireplace, a kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a scullery. Also, on the upper ground level lies a large, covered patio with a built-in braai and a swimming pool.
The lower ground level comprises another reception foyer, a study with built-in cabinets, a passage walkway with built-in cabinets and wine racks, an en-suite guest bedroom, and a large entertainment room fitted with reinforced glass portholes that provide an underwater view of the swimming pool.
On the first floor, a landing leads to four bedrooms, three bathrooms (one en suite), a guest toilet, a walk-in linen closet with open shelving, a gymnasium room, and a TV lounge. A large balcony provides expansive views of Johannesburg North.
Further improvements include staff accommodation, garaging and ample guest parking.
Northcliff is an upmarket residential suburb of Johannesburg that is in high demand due to its centrality to many fine amenities with convenient access to Beyers Naude Drive, the N1 highway, Sandton, Randburg, Roodepoort, and central-Johannesburg business districts.
Nearby amenities include the Cresta shopping centre, the Johannesburg botanical gardens, Emmerentia Dam, Fairlands Park, the Randburg Golf Club, Wilgeheuwel Hospital, the Northcliff Jummah Musjid, the Al Qadr Masjid, and Milkpark Hospital. Several nursery, primary, and high schools are nearby, such as Northcliff Primary, Northcliff High School, Franklin D Roosevelt Primary, Roosevelt High, Parktown Boys and Girls High Schools, Radford House, and Abbotts College.
The auction will commence on-site on Tuesday, the 18th of July, at 11 am. Interested bidders may view the property on Sunday the 9th from 2-4 pm. For more information, please visit Web Reference 833 on www.parkvillageauctions.co.za.
