Spring fever in Dar­ling

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

DAR­LING is gear­ing up for its an­nual spring sea­son, when vis­i­tors flock to see the area’s spec­tac­u­lar wild­flower dis­plays. One of the high­lights of the pe­riod is the Voorkamer­fees, due to take place from Septem­ber 4 to 6, when lo­cals open up their sit­ting rooms for dance, the­atre and po­etry events.

Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties say events like the Voorkamer­fees sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease in­ter­est in the town’s prop­erty. West Coast area man­ager Stephanie Wynne Cole says: “Many vis­i­tors are drawn to the spring flow­ers and other lo­cal at­trac­tions, and ex­pe­ri­ence the beauty of the area and the charm of its quiet small-town at­mos­phere. They then start re­spond­ing to our prop­erty boards. It has been a quiet year in Dar­ling, with just 15 prop­er­ties chang­ing hands in the en­tire vil­lage, across all es­tate agen­cies. But there has been a def­i­nite pick-up in ac­tiv­ity since the early ap­pear­ance of the first spring flow­ers brought the first wave of vis­i­tors back into town af­ter a quiet mid-win­ter.”

The en­try-level price for plots is around R325 000 for 775m and this goes up to around R775 000 for larger tracts of 3 100m2 or more.

A small lock-up-and-go home with two bed­rooms and a sin­gle bath­room can still be had for around R680 000, and a good-sized fam­ily home with four bed­rooms comes in at around R1.3 mil­lion.

At the top end, you can buy a beau­ti­fully re­stored Vic­to­rian home in the older sec­tion of Dar­ling for about R2.5 mil­lion.

Call John Nutter or Sheena Board­man on 022 451 2188.

OLD-WORLD CHARM: This three-bed­room Vic­to­rian home in the heart of Dar­ling is for sale at R2.6 mil­lion.
