A Gentleman’s residence polished to perfection and discreetly situated up a panhandle driveway, this fine home, with loving attention to detail, provides a wonderful gathering place for extended family and friends and has beautiful formal and informal reception rooms, four bedroom suites upstairs in the main part of the home, three bedroom suites downstairs (one with two bedrooms) two with separate entrances and two lovely private bedroom suites outside overlooking the pool.
Fernwood is a nature lover’s paradise nestling at the bottom of a world-famous national park; where walking children and dogs is a way of life; where we all commune with the mountain ; let alone the flowers and trees; where raucous guinea fowl and hadidas make themselves at home; where the Liesbeek River flows down an unpolluted riverbed and each spring we are treated to a progression of snowdrops, arum lilies and white freesias.
