The Pepper Tree House, Property 198, Number 4 Queen Street Irene Centurion remains a true treasure and without a doubt a strike of gold. This 3875m2 (0.958acres) Erf has a view rarely seen and an atmosphere hard to ignore.

The Pepper tree House is a modern design double story thatch roof house situated in the midst of the old Irene Village. This six bedroom and 5 bathroom house has stunning views overlooking the Irene Dairy and the Irene country club golf course, giving one a true country feel. The pepper Tree House with its vast open space, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, high roof, under cover patios, large swimming pool, grass terraces and lush sky high trees is designed so that one can witness the true African experience. This is a place where one can wake up with the sound of a large variety of birds, where one can watch the giant king fisher playing around in the beautiful trees or bathing in the koi fish pond, where one can sit and relax on any one of the verandas and enjoy the sunrise and sunset.

The Irene village in itself still seems as one of the best kept secrets in Gauteng, it is a clichテÉテâテÉテ「テÉ窶堙つゥ dream with its poplar, plane and oak-lined avenues. Its shady meadow-like surroundings remind one of a typical pleasant English country side that rarely comes across in these areas. Here safety is top priority, the Irene neighborhood has formed a landowners association that makes sure that the safety and security of the village is maintained. It is a secure estate with coin security guards controlling the entrances and exits and patrolling the streets 24hours night and day.

Situated almost halfway between Johannesburg and Pretoria bordering Midrand, Irene has extremely convenient access to surrounding cities by means of the R21 (to OR Tambo Airport), N1 (to PTA / Johannesburg) and N14 (to Krugersdorp/ Lanseria) highways as well as the Gautrain. Irene lies within the town of Centurion and in 2000 along with the rest of Centurion; Irene was incorporated into the city of Tshwane metropolitan Municipality. Irene would not be what it is today if it wasnテÉテâテつ「テÉツッテつソテつステÉツッテつソテつスt for hundreds of shy high, lush trees covering its grounds. Trees that were planted as far back as 1896 by J A Van der Byl himself.

An exceptional part of Irene and a bonus feature would be its history, history dating back to the early 1800s. The Pepper tree House boarders Nelmapius street named after a business man, Alois Hugo Nelmapius, who bought part the original farm and named it after his daughter Irene. Irene was first proclaimed a township in 1902 by J A Van der Byl, the first of the Van der Byls who continue to this day.

Today Irene still has a country feeling with a dairy farm, old war memorials, established homes and up-market golf course. Another well remembered gentleman, General Jan Christiaan Smuts built a house just up the hill, where the Smuts house museum can be visited to this day. The Smuts House Museum illustrates the life-style and multi-faceted career of one of South Africa's most prominent historical figures. Flea markets are also regularly held on the grounds. Jan Smuts together with J H Van der Byl were also responsible for the creation of the Irene Country golf Club, one of the most attractive golf courses imaginable right next to the Van der Byl Dairy farm.

The picturistic view point of the Pepper tree House looks out onto the most gracious lands of Irene dairy Farm, the only farm existing within the city. Its lands not only used for these grazing cows, but it is a magnate for people, whether it is for a meal or coffee among the farm-life or a conference that needs to be attended to, Irene farm is just a stone throw away.

The Pepper tree house, loved for its part in the pure Irene life, is not only a piece of paradise but most pleasantly convenient for all wants and need purposes. A true country feels with the convenience of all shopping facilities within a 5km radius. For true relaxed shopping experience visit the new Irene Mall, or visit the vibrant Centurion Mall, also the largest shopping mall in Pretoria. As for quick necessities pop in at Doornkloof, Highfeld Park or South Downs shopping centre all just round the corner. South Downs along with Irene Dairy farm and Irene country lodge all occupy some of the finest restaurants with a variety of choice along with several entertainment spots.

Definitely one of the most attractive features of the Irene Pepper tree House is the easy access to Airports, OR Tambo International as well as Lanseria and Wonderboom local airports, via the major highways, R21, N1 and N14.

Centurion itself has come a long way from being the quiet and sleepy side of Pretoria with small holdings and large open spaces. The stupendous growth that it has experienced since 1994 has left this city at the centre of all happenings. Many businesses have relocated to centurion while property development is boosting its ever expanding limits. With its idyllic placement Centurion has become the choice of lifestyle for numerous reasons, most of which due to its ideal positioning. It has largely developed from the small conservative middle-class stronghold to now being an attraction to many moneyed folk wanting a bit of country living, but still needing closeness to major amenities. This making the area one of the country's most representative and integrated communities, a sectional title success story now moving into the more popular up-market mixed-used developments, but not without its history.
