Belvidere heights, knysna
self catering holiday accommodation for up to 10 guests
panoramic views and private 20 metre pool
'Scatterlings' is a substantial five bedroomed house in Belvidere Heights, a peaceful private estate on the road to Brenton on Sea, with panoramic views over the Knysna Lagoon. The house is a short drive from Brenton on Sea's wide, sandy beach which stretches for an incredible five kilometres to Buffels Bay. It is usually a ten minute drive to the centre of Knysna, and less to the beach.
The five double bedrooms (all with balconies) are on the upper ground floor - three are en suite, and the other two share a family bathroom. Four of the bedrooms are east facing and have spectacular, unobstructed views of the Knysna Lagoon. Also on the upper ground floor is a study and a double garage. Above the garage is a large playroom, accessed from inside the house.
Most of the lower ground floor is an open plan kitchen, family room and dining area. There is also a separate lounge, a scullery, and a downstairs shower and toilet.
Large stacking doors open onto east and north facing patios with covered dining and sitting areas overlooking the 20 metre swimming pool and the breathtaking views of the lagoon.
Belvidere Heights is a gated, nine hectare, low density (only 12 plots) estate which has been developed to blend in with the surrounding fynbos. All gardens and communal areas have been planted exclusively with indigenous trees and shrubs, and there is an abundance of wildlife to be seen. Bushbuck and porcupine are frequent visitors, and the spectacular Knysna Lourie can often be seen and heard, along with a multitude of other birds such as sugarbirds and sunbirds which are attracted to the proteas and other fynbos plants. Nearly 300 bird species have been recorded in the vicinity.
