On January 29, Van’s Auctioneers will sell a 2.2-hectare smallholding that is located east of Pretoria in Equestria, very close to the recently upgraded The Grove shopping mall.

This property might be ideal for residential development but it also has a picturesque dwelling that is impressively spacious and very homely.

Equestria is a sought-after and modern suburb that in a short period of time has tremendously expanded its borders. Agricultural smallholdings in this suburb were formerly mostly utilised for equestrian activities and horse stabling. Equestria borders the established residential suburbs of Wapadrand and The Willows.

Comprehensive subdivision and residential development has seen many young and new homeowners favouring Equestria because of its unique location. Not only does it provide easy access to major routes and large modern amenities but it also has the scenic backdrop of the Bronberg Mountains as well as the Faerie Glen nature reserve, botanical gardens, Silver Lakes golf course and many other culture and heritage sites right at its doorstep for perfect weekend relaxation and family recreation.

The architectural design of the residence on this smallholding is attractively designed for extensive outdoor living that make the most of Pretoria’s beautiful summers. The combined modern and antique character of the residence is well put together and there is an easy indoor/outdoor flow.

The residence has a spectacular pool terrace and an established garden with high palm trees, large trees and lush shrubs. There is also a campfire area with a built in braai and fire pit in the centre. The property has an imposing entrance, six bedrooms, four bathrooms and several living areas. All fixtures and fittings are of superior quality.

The main kitchen is both stylish and functional, and also has a touch of French inspiration. There is an island for serving and preparation and ample cupboard space. The spacious North facing main bedroom has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and has a sliding door to a balcony, exquisite walk-in closet with beautiful built-in cupboards and a chic en suite. Other extras of the property include two two-bedroom flat lets, a Jacuzzi and a squash court.
