‘La Deviniere’ – a unique, classically designed, French styled home – is a four-bedroom masterpiece positioned just above Rhodes Drive, on the slopes of Table Mountain. Rawson Auctions Western Cape will be bringing this property to auction at the end of March.

The house is located on a massive erf of 5220m2 and boasts a beautiful, well-established indigenous garden. The garden remains lush and verdant throughout the year. Joining the magnificent garden outside is a built-in braai, a family entertainment area and a pool area, and two large garages. The Cecilia Forest borders the back garden and extends itself over the property. You’ll find lovely, little private paths and walkways, which brings the tranquillity of nature right to your doorstep.

The home itself is a double- storey and has an impressive entrance leading into a large lounge and open-plan dining room. Downstairs is made up of two bedrooms, both of which are en-suite; a separate lounge and dining room; a large kitchen; and direct access to the family entertainment area and swimming pool.

Upstairs you’ll find the remaining bedrooms, one of which is en-suite; a separate bathroom and guest toilet; the large main lounge, a dining room; a recently renovated modern kitchen with slate floors, a separate entrance from the garage; and a protected outside entertainment area. The flooring is wooden inlaying.

Some extra features include double servants’ quarters which can be used for a variety of purposes. There are large windows strewn throughout the house which provide views. The interior of the home is spacious and flows effortlessly from room to room.

Constantia is a very safe area, but nonetheless the property is equipped with an alarm, burglar   bars, a panic button and access is controlled through a remote gate.

“It’s no surprise that Constantia is known as one of Cape Town’s most affluent suburbs with properties like this one. Like most properties in the area, this one is large, the grounds are spacious, and there’s plenty of lush greenery and open land. This property can easily bring in an estimated R70 000 a month in rental income. Residents will have close access to Kirstenbosch Gardens and numerous shopping centres, as well as several well-known wine estates,” remarked Tanya Jovanovski, franchisee of Rawson Auctions Western Cape.

The auction will be silent by tender (written offers in a sealed envelope), with tenders closing on March 29 at 12 noon. The guided price is R11 million rand, however, all offers will be reviewed . Rates and taxes are R7200 per month.
