Ayliff House was the home of settler John Ayliff, & was then used as a Manse for the nearby Methodist church. The house is situated on a large Erf of 2 141 sq. metres & is entirely but discreetly protected by an 8 foot pale green electrified palisade fence. This enchanting property has been enlarged over the years by its previous owners & has now been impeccably & sensitively restored by the present owners, with the help of a local architect, in keeping with the history of the house, & yet practicable, low maintenance & conveniently located - being within walking distance to both the West Beach & Kellys Blue Flag Beach, the Royal Port Alfred Golf Club , the Royal St Andrews Hotel & various restaurants in the neighbourhood. The original house, garden cottage & patio now has a beautiful white aluminium roof. The front windows & double doors have been replaced with bespoke Iroko hardwood.

Many period details have been lovingly preserved, & on entering, one finds magnificent oregan-pine floors that have been professionally whitewashed in the large lounge, dining room & passages. There are high ceilings throughout & a beautiful fireplace, with storage side cupboards & a wide mantel piece. There are 3 large carpeted bedrooms (Oregon Pine floors) with built in cupboards, 2 bathrooms & a reading room / sun porch. The kitchen leads to a utility room for appliances, with a door then opening onto to the back garden.

This self- contained spacious, light-filled, open plan lounge / dining / kitchen, leads to 2 good sized bedrooms with built in cupboards, & a full bathroom. It has underfloor heating throughout.

One of the best features of the property is the beautiful, huge veranda which overlooks the front garden & also links the main house to the garden flat. It is sheltered from the wind by shrubs & plants & protected from the prevailing westerly winds by a huge plate glass window which creates a most attractive frame of the garden beyond.

There are beautiful large flowering trees & garden beds with indigenous plants, amid splashes of colour from shrubs in this peaceful garden, with soft sounds from the sea & prolific birdlife. There is ample water from 9 discreet, large water tanks & an underground reservoir. There is also a spacious double carport, lock up garage & an outside garden bathroom.

This is a gem.. waiting for the discerning buyer to take over this special home, which exudes love, warmth & distinction.
