                                            Large impressive timber house perched on top of a dune overlooking a lake

                                            4 of 5
                                            The property is a large log home with beautiful views from every aspect. It is open plan and the double height in the main living area lend the property to being spacious, open and light. The entirety of the property is made from wood which is calming and feels very natural. The views are incredible. It's only 5 minutes away from Wilderness and Sedgefield where you will find all amenities but you have total seclusion and privacy. The house is well equipped including DSTV player but no DSTV (bring your own card), but there is a DVD player. The hot tub is great and sufficiently hot. There is a large balcony with sunloungers and cushions perfect for sun bathing. The decking area is quite safe for kids (we have a 3 year old) although there are 2 corners where the balustrade is quite low (so just be cautious). The bedrooms and bathrooms are fine although a little dated. It must be noted that the master suite is on the living area level and upstairs there is a double room and a twin room. All ensuite. The 4th double room is on the ground floor next to the garage. The house does get hot as there is no aircon. However I would completely recommend it and it is the perfect hideaway for those looking to relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
