A “magnificent” multi-storey family home with panoramic views of Northcliff will go under the hammer in a joint venture between Park Village Auctions working and WH Auctions.
PVA’s Roy Lazarus says that the “well-kept and stately” property is “generously apportioned and located in one of South Africa’s most established and affluent suburbs, making it the envy of seasoned investors”.
Number 198A Frederick Drive, Northcliff, opens from a grand portico entrance on the upper ground level to 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. On the same level lies a large, covered patio with a built-in braai and a swimming pool.
The lower ground level comprises a second foyer, a study, 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. The property measures an impressive 1 350 square meters.
Northcliff is in high demand due to its centrality 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, 29 August, at 11 am. Viewings will be held on 20 and 27 August from 2 pm to 4 pm. For more information, please visit Web Reference 833 on www.parkvillageauctions.co.za.
