House Walden, situated below Lions Head in Fresnaye, is an architecturally beautiful villa dating back to 1923.
Named by its first owner after an autobiography novel Walden from the American author Henry David Thoreau and converted into a guest house in 2003 and further modernised in 2009 with a stunning third floor.
The property offers flexible accommodation, currently used as a guest house but could easily be restored to a beautiful family home. Current accommodation comprises entrance hall, study, kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory and two bedrooms en-suite (one two-room apartment with open fireplace in the lounge, spacious bedroom, and one bedroom with shower/bath) on the ground floor all of which have access to patio areas and a view of the 17m swimming pool.
The first floor comprises a further four double bedrooms (three of which are en-suite) and a bathroom. Each room has access to a balcony with sea views. Two of these rooms are mountain/garden views, double/bedrooms, each with spacious bathrooms with bath/shower and balcony.
In 2009, the current owner added a third floor to the property which has a further guest suite and the owner's accommodation, a beautiful loft style apartment of approximately 200 m² with open plan living, kitchen, bedroom suite and generous balcony space boasting incredible sea views towards Robben Island and the West Coast.
