is a lovely riverfront self-catering cottage ideally located in Stanford. Stanford is an unspoilt village in the Cape Overberg and features an assortment of Cape Victorian and Edwardian architecture, quaint country lanes and an overall atmosphere of natural calm.
Pristine yet laid-back, this heritage enclave is the perfect balm for families needing to escape the city crush. At its heart is River’s Edge, a delightful double-storey home thoughtfully equipped with every modern convenience while still retaining its old-world charm.
Lush lawns lead down to the pristine Klein River where you can swim, boat or kayak; or simply laze on the banks admiring the natural splendour, or simply relax at the pool. Take a slow, scenic cycle through the village, and make a point of visiting the Saturday morning market for scrumptious homemade goodies. Stanford is fast becoming a culinary hotspot, boasting award-winning bistros, hotel pubs, vineyards, a cheese maker and micro-brewery.
The kitchen includes a scullery with a washing machine and a dishwasher, and the cosy lounge offers a log-burning fireplace. The French doors lead to a covered patio area. The house is fully alarmed and includes a Bose iPod docking station.
