This impeccably updated residence proves you can have it all in Howick. The 380sqm black beauty has doubled in size and is now fit to accommodate its family of five with five bedrooms, four bathrooms and two living spaces. The architecturally designed upgrade exudes contemporary class and comfort inside and out. The gorgeous galley-style kitchen boasts an oversized marble-topped island and discreet scullery. Inside flows seamlessly to stunning alfresco entertaining areas, including a loggia with a fireplace for ambient evenings in the open air. New glazing, insulation and air-conditioning promise a perfectly comfortable living environment. The home is clad in stained cedar with a pebble driveway and separate path. Both lead to the 19th-century inspired entrance and portico. Traditional gable rooftops provide a nod to the past, keeping things in tune with heritage. The internal-access three-car garage balances out this mega makeover.
