Stunning Edwardian period home in Richmond.

Majestic Edwardian style home in the better part of Richmond Kwazulu Natal.This home has been superbly preserved to maintain its originality and charm. This gem of a home was built in the early 1900s and all the doors, floors and ceilings are made of the original Oregon pine from that bygone area.

The home has almost a wraparound veranda. Entering the home one passes through double pine doors into the hallway with 4 bedrooms either side through to the lounge sitting room, the original dining room which can be reverted back is currently used as a bedroom. Two neat bathrooms- one which has been kept as was, with the original raised ball and claw bath. Lovely practical kitchen with gas oven and especially custom made dish washing sink. The owner is partial to offers on furnishings and fittings.

Out the back of this 2000 Sqm property is a second home/cottage that has been divided in two and is currently rented out for additional income, A third structure being used as a second workshop could easily be converted into a studio flatlet, with a Wendy house that could also be utilised .The income would greatly assist with your bond redemption. It has a long garage with an auto roller door and a carport.

This property is within walking distance of the Richmond school and the shopping mall – less than half an hour from Pietermaritzburg.

It is a very versatile kind of property and has many possibilities. It has three separate DB boards meaning one could use the cottage etc. as a business unit or a B&B .The main home itself is almost custom made for and easily visualised as a Boutique Air B&B.

The North facing property comes with a well-manicured garden, and a magnificent view looking out towards Byrne Valley.

It has really good security with round bar steel burglar guards and outside lighting that makes night change to day with Auto security gate.

These charming, beautifully built, historical homes do not come on the market often, call me post-haste to view.
