Ultimate luxury right on the water’s edge. Situated on the prestigious Royal Alfred Marina on the corner in “Millionaire’s row” is this majestic home on a double stand measuring 1497 sqm.

This multi storey home has the advantage in that from the entrance one is on ground floor level with kitchen, dining, lounges, bedroom en suite, deck and pool, flat with sauna and 2 double garages are all accessed on this level. On first floor are 3 bedrooms. Main en suite with modern full bathroom and a walk in wardrobe, 2 extra bedrooms sharing a full, modern second bathroom and a family lounge which includes a study. The second floor has breathtaking sea views and has a main bedroom en suite with own private lounge and patio.

The garden is inviting, landscaped, walled and larger than most marina properties. Wild strelitzias and plams give the tropical feeling which so suits this property. The situation of this home affords one privacy, warmth and is very sheltered from prevailing winds.

On the northern side your garden ends on the edge of the canal which is completely tidal. You have your own private jetty and can fish, swim or go boating off your front lawn or jetty. Security is the ultimate! This is where one can spend “the rest of your life”
