A classic style detached house on a wide residential tree lined road in the Southern suburbs of Cape Town for location hire.
Available for both stills and filming.
Constructed at the end of World War 2 by an English company for returning officers. It’s a solid, double storey brick built house with a tiled roof and steel casement windows. A full exterior renovation has just been completed with a top to toe repaint in a slightly warm pale grey to give it a more contemporary look without distracting from the traditional feel. New guttering with the downpipes repositioned to tidy things up. New pedestal lighting to the driveway and around the garden. Speaking of which, the large sunny front garden has had the walled raised to give more privacy and is laid mostly to lawn with surrounding planted out flowerbeds. The front stoep with a new patio area have been re-laid with neutral coloured stone pavers.
Access is through a 5 meter wide solid timber sliding gate with a paved driveway leading to a double garage. With on street parking for your key location vehicles and a playing field opposite that can be arranged as a base camp for your other crew vehicles and general transport.
Sitting on a 1200 sq mt plot with a well established mature garden at the front that easily translates into a European look – or indeed any other look you may be requiring. The house, which has wood parquet flooring, has been redecorated matt white throughout giving you a blank canvas to work from for set dressing. The rear garden is now a fully paved patio area with a lapa covered seating area. The Salt Water pool has sandstone copings with an EasiGrass area at one end and new pedestal lighting to set things off in the evenings. Most things, both inside and out can be moved, be they flowerpots, the pool cover, pictures or pieces of furniture, to suit your requirements.
The property has the huge advantage of a borehole. Therefore the garden is watered and kept green, despite the current water restrictions in place.
Providing it’s not let, can be used either as a production office whilst you’re shooting or to stay in whilst you’re in Cape Town. Fully self contained with its own access you can come and go as you please. It too has undergone a top to toe re-fit & consists of an openplan lounge/dining area with the bedroom off to oneside – dbl bed & masses of cupboard space, walk in shower/wetroom & fully re-fitted kitchen with new appliances, flatscreen TV & wifi.
