Call it romantic, call it preservation, but the owners wanted to preserve that feel of country living within an indigenous landscape as they first found it in Merry Hill many years ago.
In 2002 after a tour of numerous inspected properties along the Western and Eastern coast the owners decided to return to Kenton and buy the properties on Merry Hill Drive.
Allow me to describe what they saw when they first viewed the property. They were stunned by the panoramic view from the deck most of all, not just the Boesmanriver, nor the view of the river mouth (from the firstfloor) but certainly the 180 degree view all over the horizon towards the ocean and inland. Sundowns have always been a great joy from their deck.
They fell in love with the charming house and it's unique architectural design.
The timber and the unplastered bricks of the house with the attached braai area add to the feel of a cottage, the sort of 'country living' we are all after.
The garden they started many years ago, is now well established and yet unspoiled.
The original coastal indigenous bush and trees on the two adjacent erven, made them fall in love with the romantic hide away. Thus, procuring both vacant land to consolidate all three into one very large real estate, made perfectly sense. Not only to secure their privacy, but
mostly to secure the original land that was, and is still there.......Untouched.
After every rainy day, we will discover the most gorgeous aloes and wild plants, flowering bushes, berries and smells that the bush produces on these days.
Not to mention the enjoyment of so much visiting wildlife attracted by the bush ie the popular Oribi, Knysna Loeries, Sunbirds and Franklins. Small buck and turtles are regularly spotted in the garden.
To their surprise, they have also discovered remains of an old treehouse behind the braai, built for the children of the very first owners.
End your day with a 5 minute walk to the Marina, watch how the residents moore their boats and enjoy the breathtaking sunset over the Bushmansriver.
