This intriguing house, aptly named, reminds one of Noah’s Ark. It nestles amongst giant trees in a wooded garden a few steps away from the meandering river. The house has been tastefully furnished with French country flair, with an interesting mix of robust antiques and contemporary furniture. It comprises a downstairs lounge/dining area with large kitchen, open fireplace, a formal dining area and a cosy seating area. The covered veranda looks out onto the spacious garden and play area for children.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a large fridge/freezer, 5 plate gas stove with electric oven and an adequate preparation area and cupboard space. A small laundry area houses a washing machine, dishwasher and ice maker. The outdoor pit braai area is set away from the house with the circle of chairs and rustic workbench inviting long evenings around the fire.

One additional bedroom is accessed from the back veranda furnished with a double bed. There is a nook extension of the living area with 2 single beds, perfect for an afternoon nap or for the children to sleep.
