Self catering Victorian cottage in Cape Town
The area is considered to be one of Cape Town's finest and is much sought after, as it is situated within easy walking distance of the City Centre, and is half-way between the City and the majestic Table Mountain on the one side, and Lions Head and Signal Hill on the other. Much of the area is rich in Victorian-styled houses and traditional architecture of the late 19th century. Tamboerskloof is considered to be a safe area, with excellent community safety services.
The architectural style of 56 Kloof Nek Road is Victorian, boasting high ceilings and plenty of original Oregon wood doors and floors. Built in 1875, the cottage celebrated its 130 birthday with an extensive renovation and refurbishment in 2005.
The cottage comprises one double and one twin room. All bed linen used is 100% pure cotton. There is one full bathroom indoors, with bath and hand shower, and an outside shower situated under the large grape vine — very popular during Cape Townâ€™s long hot summers.
The remaining area consists of a huge living and dining area with an open plan kitchen. The living area is simply furnished with leather sofas, a large coffee table, antique Kelim carpets and a TV and music system. An eclectic selection of books is available, and a small private art collection adorns most walls in the house.
The kitchen is fully equipped, and includes fridge, stove, toaster, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, tumble drier, and all necessary cooking and eating utensils. A safe and secluded back garden provides the ideal setting for enjoying barbecues under the old grape vine; for candlelit dinners; or indulging in some private sunbathing.
The cottage is serviced upon request.
Parking is on-street and is available, both at the front and at the back of the cottage.
The entire house is fitted with burglar bars on the windows, and burglar gates on the doors.
A Non Smoking policy is applied indoors.
56 Kloof Nek Road straddles two roads, being Kloof Nek Road in the front, and Leeukop Lane at the back. The former road links the City to the base station of the Table Mountain Cableway, and is also the main thoroughfare to Camps Bay, Clifton and Hout Bay. Leeukop Lane runs past the back of the house, and is one of the two ways of convenient access to the house (the other being in Kloof Nek Road).
