Karoo Huis 3 Bedroom House Victoria West

Victoria West, Northern Cape - South Africa



Originally built between 1872 and 1880, the home is a classical example of well-maintained Karoo architecture. A sloping (to back) flat-roofed structure, with addition of partially enclosed front veranda with ornamental woodwork, fronting onto the town’s main road. Original oregon pine flooring, shuttered box-windows and kitchen hearth, all in working order. All ceilings are pine and doors are all original timber. Three bedrooms, beautifully restored bathroom with shower a later addition. The two larger bedrooms both have ceiling fans and one has air-conditioning. A large, comfortable kitchen and dining area great for family gatherings around the hearth in winter. The large lounge/living area opens onto a recent stone stoep addition where summer shade from an apple and fig tree is enjoyed. To escape the harsh climate, the lounge is equipped with air-conditioning. The garden, partially grass and partially “Karoo-tuin” also has a plum, lemon and olive tree and is fully enclosed by original garden walls (white-washed) and recent stone walls. Out back is a solid garage opening onto a back entrance. Overall, the home provides delightful cottage living with some necessary modern additions
