You’ll have the entire ”super private” studio apartment to yourself. Inside, you'll find distinctive character with sophisticated finishes including stripped ‘wooden’ floors, ‘Arts & Crafts’ solid oak kitchen and full designer bathroom en-suite. It comfortably contains a king-sized bed (extended length), a sitting area as well as a workstation. This bedroom has a seating area that is very similar to one that you would find in a hotel. It is completely functional, a minimalist lounging area or Couple Seating if you like. Why not use your sitting area as a place that both you and your partner can enjoy? This is the ideal way to wind down before bedtime. Watch some television, read a book, or just chill. This small space is also ideal for a couple to just sit and talk over a glass of wine. There is also a coffee table for 2 which when used with the chairs really adds some flair. Used as a table to play a game, do some paperwork, read a book, TV dinners, whatever your heart desires. This concept of the sitting area gives you the freedom of living without making sacrifices. The bedside computer desk and chair is the ideal place to sit and get your work done in peace. Once you’re finished, the bed is only a few steps away. This studio apartment has a boutique French farmhouse theme and is often seen as a romantic retreat. This cozy upstairs loft oozes appeal and has been designed to nurture rather than impress. It’s a studio loft that works, it is definitely not boring and definitely not ostentatious. It could be used as a treehouse, you know, somewhere to take that Sunday afternoon nap. What about a den, that place where you go to get away to gather your thoughts, reflect and unwind or a place to stimulate your creative juices with special appeal to the business executive? This studio is good for singles and couples, young and old. Who doesn't fantasize about a small place of one's own—a retreat, an escape, a refuge? This character-filled studio is inclined to feed your imagination, even from the street. It is loved by all who enter in, especially ”creatives”. Here is a green home that will feed your spirit with loads of daylight. The quirky and contemporary loft is a perfectly formed bolthole (place of refuge) for everyone - all can enjoy their independence in this fantastic central location.
The kitchenette is solid oak “Arts and Crafts” styling and kitted out with the basics. It includes an under-counter refrigerator, a microwave oven, toaster, kettle, cooking containers, glass, crockery and cutlery. You can cook from scratch in the kitchen or just microwave a ready meal from Woolies, Checkers or any of the supermarkets close by. You can also order from Uber Eats or Mr Delivery and others to get yummy food delivered directly to you. If you want to braai/barbecue you're welcome to use the one in the garden. If you don’t fancy any of the above then there’s always going out for dinner in one of many restaurants nereby.
The star of the show is the King Size Extended Length super popular Sealy Posturepedic gentle firm Mattress with luxury polly cotton bedding. This allows for very comfortable sleeping and just hanging out. Every effort has been made to ensure guests will have a comfortable nights rest. If you feel chilly we provide extra blankets.
There is a private bathroom en-suite to your studio living area which features a bath, shower, wash-hand basin and toilet.
You have unlimited access to 100Mbs blazing-fast fibre-based Wi-Fi at no charge. I did say unlimited, so go mad on the downloads, nobody's going to mind. There is a 32 inch/80cm Samsung 5 Series / N5300 ”Smart” HDTV. If you are not familiar with what a ”Smart” TV does, you may want to do a Google search beforehand. It is interesting that only a small percentage (around 15%) of TV’s being sold today are ”dumb” the rest being ”smart”.
There is a private outdoor entrance and guests are free to come and go at all hours of the day or night. Guests enter their apartment from the garden. Entry to the studio is by steel spiral staircase. The stairs are very safe and easy to climb for young and old alike. The cottage is the upstairs portion of the house and is for your sole use - it's all for you - no sharing with other guests. There is another, 2 guest non-sharing studio apartment (The Woodsman) downstairs which does not have stairs. If it is occupied, they would share the outdoor areas with you. If you prefer to stay in ”The Woodsman” which has no stairs, or if ”The Potters Loft” is not available, check out our other listing. At the foot of your spiral staircase is a peaceful outdoor living area second to none, with wooden deck, gazebo and fishpond. Here you can chill and braai/barbecue anytime you like. This outdoor area oozes charm, character and snug privacy. The Hosts have their own fenced-off outdoor living area and so do not use this patio space. Guests are obligated to comply with the Homeowners Association Rules and especially pay consideration to the well being of other residents. No music, parties, events or entertaining friends are allowed to take place on the property. Only authorized guests are permitted on the property during guest stays, unless otherwise pre-arranged with the Host. Outside visitors or guests must be approved by your Host prior to their arrival. It's a quiet spot in the garden and I'd like it to stay that way. No excessive noise, day or night - the neighborhood is very quiet - neighbors will complain about noise and the Estate security will be called. Safe and secure parking is provided off-street on the premises for one car behind gates. Should you have two cars please discuss this with the host beforehand.
Superb location. This studio apartment has a highly sought after quality address, located in the lush heavily treed Thornhill Estate, an 85 hectare established ‘green’, low-density security estate with ‘roots’ and a heritage spanning back more than a century. Thornhill Estate is a unique ‘pedestrian-friendly’ neighborhood, which incorporates elements of an established architectural style, which boasts a spectacular and diverse range of residential buildings, from very old semi-detached homes built in the 1940s to large modern ”mac mansions” built this century. It has been established in an open ‘country lifestyle’ format (perfect for walking), where you can experience numerous spacious green belts complete with beautiful gardens, swimming pools, community centre, ‘village green’ and sports field. Set “a mere stones throw” from your front door is a willow-fringed meandering watercourse with ducks, geese and numerous other birds together with interesting fauna and flora. And all of this in the thriving metropolis of Johannesburg not far from OR Tambo International airport. Adjacent to the Modderfontein Golf Course, Thornhill Estate is surely one of Johannesburg’s most unique, fashionable living arrangements and best-kept property secrets? This is arguably one of the best locations in South Africa and has a special appeal to those who enjoy living close to nature. Thornhill Estate is an environment that is perceived as safer, cleaner and better run than many city suburbs in South Africa, which is evident in the demand and relocation of many families to this conservancy. Although falling under the jurisdiction of the Johannesburg Metro, Thornhill Estate has this “far from the maddening crowd” appeal. It is strategically superb, situated just off Modderfontein Road roughly 3 kilometers from the Edenvale N3 Interchange, within close proximity to Greenstone Mall. It straddles the Gautrain Express Rail in a development corridor between Sandton and O.R. Tambo International Airport. A few minutes walk from the entrance to the security Estate will get you to village restaurants supermarkets and shops at Flamingo Mall. There you will find Woolworths, Checkers and Dischem. There is also a launderette that will do your washing and ironing at reasonable prices. A few minutes drive to the shopping complex of Greenstone and Stoneridge with all the luxuries and conveniences that guests could ever expect.
