2 Bedroom House for Sale in Observatory
This beautiful 2-bedroom house integrates Victorian charm with trendy, modernized features to create a comfortable and convenient place to call home. The house is semi-detached, on the bend of the quiet but very central Neath Road. It is a 5 to 10-minute walk to most amenities, including:

• Restaurants & cafés: over a dozen to choose from just around Lower Main Road;

• Parks: the Arnold Street dog park and children’s park, both with secure access, as well as the Two Rivers Urban Park along the Liesbeeck and the Malta Park sports field for exercising and dog-walking;

• Grocery stores: Spar, Pick n Pay, a new Woolies food store at the Engen garage and the local Korea Mart;

• Medical: GP, dentist, pharmacy, Groote Schuur public & UCT private hospitals;

• Other: Jammie Shuttle, train station, hardware store, hairdressers, tailors, a laundromat, vintage clothing stores, Hartleyvale hockey stadium, small businesses and Black River office park, and many more.

You don’t really need a car to get what you need, but if you have one it takes 5 minutes to get onto the N2 (inbound and outbound), M3 and M5 highways. Finding parking is usually possible right opposite the house. Off-street, overnight parking can be arranged with neighbouring FAMSA for a monthly charge.

The house itself boasts beautiful wooden floors, high ceilings and a lot of natural light. The two bedrooms, which are both to the left of the passageway as you enter the house, have large built-in cupboards and are spacious enough to accommodate a double bed and desk. (Ideal for student lets or working from home.) Down the hallway you enter a large reception room and open-plan kitchen, which has a gas hob and plumbing for a dishwasher.

As is characteristic of these old Victorian homes, the bathroom is off the kitchen, and has a bath and shower and plumbing for a washing machine. Back through the kitchen and into the decked garden outside, which is ideal for outside dining, hosting and relaxing. This garden faces East, so gets sun from morning until late afternoon. (Which is great for laundry and growing sun-loving plants!)

The house has recently been renovated, but still offers opportunities for personalization and possible expansion into the spacious attic. It is an ideal starter home or investment property. In fact, with the high demand for rentals in Observatory, we have had no troubles renting out this house for the past two years*.

*Since taking these photos in 2021, our tenants have changed the decor to suit their own styles, and the plants have grown more lush. Why not come and see how this house could accommodate your touch!
