(ref# 2630 ) an old character home on 3 acres in the golden triangle, this rare property has much to offer. It is set on the top of a gentle hill heavily wooded with msasas and other indigenous trees and offers tranquility whilst being located on one of harare's most sought after addresses. The house, which is partly double storey, consists of a quarry tiled verandah, partially open and partially covered, with a built-in braai/fireplace. Broekie lace detail and attractive iron railings separate the area from the pool which, whilst functioning does need some attention. There is a large main lounge with fireplace, a second lounge-cum-study with fireplace and both rooms have attractive recessed arched features and some stained glass windows. A fitted kitchen with walk-in pantry adjoins the dining room. Four bedrooms and a fifth bedroom/study (all with bic’s), three bathrooms, one of which is en suite. Wall-to-wall carpet throughout. There is a separate cottage with full length verandah, kitchen, lounge, bedroom, bathroom and study. Staff quarters with 4 rooms. Double garage and old open garage at the back, which serves as a storeroom. There is a borehole (capacity not known) but water has supplied tenant's needs throughout their tenancy. 5000 l tank. All structures need upgrading to varying degrees but it is a significant property that has much potential and is fairly unique in terms of its size and location. This property has several possibilities, from restoring it to its former glory to considering it for development purposes.
