The approach to Highgarden (previously known as Shanrose) is delightfully understated, off the R116, down a delightful tree-lined country lane.   As you drive down the laneway past a handful of houses mostly concealed by mature trees and marvel at the scenery, you get a sense that you are drawing away from the hustle of the city and entering into a serene and secluded setting without compromise.

Highgarden is a substantial modern detached house which was originally built in the 1970's and totally rebuilt and refurbished in 2000 with emphasis on space and light. Although the property is in excellent condition, new owners may modernise some areas to reflect today's trends. Great care has been taken in the considered design to work with and maximise both the gradient of the site and the orientation of the sun. The result is this impressive family home enjoying a tastefully appointed internal layout. The feature which really stands out and creates a sense of style, with a continental flavour, is the double height conservatory to the south west wing of the house. It provides exceptional light which it reflects throughout this part of the house.

A cobble-lock driveway leads up past the front lawn with well stocked flowerbeds and feature pond to the porticoed entrance which opens to the double height hallway. The hall, with Ishmir Gold terracotta flooring, is double height creating a great sense of openness and calm that is the theme throughout. To the right is a hall with Canadian oak-floored reception room with a large brick fireplace and patio doors opening into the garden to the front. To the left, with matching oak flooring is the dining room which opens into the stone floored Siematic kitchen: this has white units with chrome knobs, polished black granite countertops, island unit and black Aga.
A large study at the back of the house is fitted with built-in desks and storage presses; next to it is a larger utility room opening into a storage room which in turn leads into a good-sized wine cellar.

Upstairs, a glazed door from the top landing opens into two exceptionally spacious rooms that traverse the mid-section of the house on the first floor.   They enjoy a timber floor and impressive vaulted timber ceiling.   With a piano sitting proud in one corner and a door onto a deck to the side it is no surprise this space is used as a music room. This has double doors which open to the Mezzanine Room with delightful views of the garden and the sunroom below.

To the front of the house there are two double bedrooms, both with ensuite facilities, one opens directly off the mezzanine room whilst the other opens to the patio area to the side. To the back of the first floor there is a family room/lounge with double doors to a balcony. Three more bedrooms, one ensuite, and the other two sharing a shower room, complete the first floor accommodation.

This is without doubt a superb family home which will appeal to families and executives alike looking for a home within easy commuting distance to the city whilst enjoying the seclusion and privacy of a rural setting.
