Glitzy style in a superb location
Although many upmarket properties in Knysna enjoy views of either the Indian Ocean or the famous Lagoon, there are precious few that offer both. Crystal Waters is one of them!
Located close to the top of the Eastern Head, this spacious residence is situated above the sea & lagoon, offering a breathtaking 180-degree vista from its front deck – the ideal spot to enjoy spectacular sunsets.
Recently refurbished by its current owners, Crystal Waters has a unique style & ambience. Traditional wood ceilings, windows & doors have been augmented by shiny contemporary furniture, sparkling mirrors, eye-catching light fittings & some truly glamorous furnishings. This is a house to have fun in!
Sleeping up to 12 people in 6 bedrooms, Crystal Waters is perfect for entertaining & features a large well-equipped kitchen, 2 huge flat screen TVs (with DSTV) indoor Jacuzzi & outside pool.
Arranged on 3 floors, the accommodation comprises:
Ground floor: The bright, spacious dining room is at the heart of the property. In addition to a large dining table (seating 8), sideboard & storage cupboards, the area has a sofa, distinctive “bubble” chair suspended from the ceiling, bar/serving hatch to the kitchen & fold-back doors opening out to the front deck & pool.
The adjacent kitchen features a breakfast bar, ceramic hob, double oven, fridge/freezer with mirrored doors & ice maker, microwave, kettle & other appliances. The utility area at the far end contains a dishwasher, washing machine & dryer.
The attractive lounge with its high, pine-clad ceiling & patio doors to the wraparound deck is next to the dining room. Dazzling white leather sofas, enormous coffee table, luxurious accessories, fireplace & 40” flat screen TV with DSTV & DVD combine to make it a glamorous relaxation area.
Also at ground floor level are 3 double bedrooms accessed via an inner hall off the lounge area:
Bedroom 1 is furnished & decorated in a very individual style: silver-painted ‘Baroque’ wardrobes, dressing table & bedside units, chandelier & sumptuous black & silver furnishings. The adjacent bathroom has a bath, separate shower cubicle & ‘his & hers’ washbasins.
Bedrooms 2 & 3 are equally striking with their huge black/white headboards & sparkling light fittings. Both rooms feature fitted wardrobes & share an adjacent bath/shower room.
Stairs from the inner hall lead to the huge air-conditioned master bedroom on the upper floor offering superb ocean & lagoon views. With its king bed, glitzy mirrored furniture, beaded chandelier, 40” flat screen TV (with DSTV & DVD), adjacent Jacuzzi room & bathroom with bath, separate shower & single washbasin, this master suite is straight out of a Bollywood movie!
The lower floor has 2 further twin bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes & small en-suite shower rooms – ideal for children or domestic staff. There’s also a large storeroom & access to the double garage.
A wraparound deck runs along two sides of the property. To the front there’s a sun deck with pool & glorious double-aspect views, to the side an exterior dining/braai area.
