Set in historic Tamboerskloof, this charming Victorian villa has been lovingly renovated and beautifully decorated. Offering four bedrooms, original wooden floors, and expansive views from its peaceful setting, Maudville is a wonderful option for a stay in Cape Town’s city bowl area.
The villa enters into a comfortable central living room with bedrooms grouped around it. On one side there are two double bedrooms with a shared interleading en-suite bathroom with shower. The first bedroom has a lovely alcove with bay windows and an armchair. Both rooms have double beds and ceiling fans. The third bedroom is on the other side of the living room and has a full en-suite bathroom, double bed and ceiling fan. The rooms all have a delightful colonial charm about them in keeping with the historic nature of the house.
Stairs lead up to a spacious upper level with large windows, plenty of light and an easy indoor-outdoor flow. The fully equipped kitchen is designed for social meal preparation. There are stools at the counter and the 8-seater dining table just beyond that. On one side of the dining area large glass stacking doors fold right back giving a sense of dining al fresco and allowing a free flow of air. On the other side are French doors opening on to the front balcony.
A fireplace separates the dining area from the upper lounge and warms up both rooms on chilly winter evenings. These rooms are characterised by beautiful chandelier light fittings, baroque mirrors, and flowing white curtains. The living room is furnished with stylish couches and armchairs, and there are glass sliding doors leading out to the terrace with its potted garden. A ceiling fan spins above you as you enjoy barbecues and comfortable outdoor dining on the terrace. Views spread out from Signal Hill across the city and to the mountains beyond.
The master bedroom is located on this upper level and has a partially open-plan en-suite bathroom. The room has a Queen-size bed and doors lead out to a private balcony with table and chairs from which to soak in the view. The bathroom has an enclosed shower and a bath with a view. A door leads out to another balcony at the front of the villa.
There is a private plunge pool located on the enclosed front terrace with its well-tended pot plants, paving and outdoor seating.
