8 Redhill Road, Morningside

Tucked away in a quiet and secure cul-de-sac in Morningside, is the very special Louis Louw designed Zonnehoek residence.Boasting a complete renovation, this property sits on a spacious 2000m2 stand.This distinctive home combines expansive living and entertaining spaces with exacting attention to detail.A grand foyer including a floor to ceiling glass expanse which catches your eye, leads to many of the formal receptions, which include a dining room which is adjacent to the gourmet kitchen with Gagenau appliances and breakfast room, an inviting family room with a fireplace and a lounge which spills into the indoor / outdoor patio flooded with natural light from the dramatic skylight overhead.Entertainment is plenty with a downstairs wine cellar and an additional large patio with a built in gas braai and wet bar, neatly tucked into a cupboard. Additional space comes in the form of various cupboards for storage throughout the home. From the patio, one can access the back garden as well as the manicured front treed garden with pool.Further accommodation is offered by a fitted study and pyjama lounge upstairs all secured by a security door on entering the landing area. Highlights of the private quarters with 3 bedrooms on the upper level include a lavish master suite with an enviable dressing room and an outside shower in addition to the bath and double shower. The main bedroom also enjoys a north facing balcony with putting green and a skylight looking down into the indoor / outdoor patio. A guest wing downstairs, inclusive of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a separate entrance and parking are further amenities to the Zonnehoek residence, with double staff quarters and plenty of parking - making it the perfect and secure family home.The affluent suburb of Morningside is a mixture of post-war homes and secure townhouse complexes. The leafy quiet suburb is favoured particularly by those working in Johannesburg's financial district - the bustling commercial capital of Sandton - dominated by high rise buildings, glass and chrome finishes, world class hotels, the Sandton Convention Centre and Sandton City's almost 300 shops, where the art of acquiring possessions is a major pastime amongst some of South Africa's trendy shoppers.But Morningside is not all about high living. The Outspan Bird Sanctuary is based in the suburb on the banks of the Outspan Spruit. Home to a number of local species of birds, the sanctuary offers almost two hectares of peace and solitude to bird and nature lovers alike.The Village Walk shopping centre, in Maude Street, offers a quieter alternative to Sandton City, and the coffee bars and restaurants a more sedate way to pass an afternoon. Morningside's shopping Centre too provides a calmer environment in which to shop and have a meal.
