Build­ing in heart of town up for sale

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - AUCTIONS -

SIT­U­ATED in the heart of the Stel­len­bosch tourist area, Unit 9, the Andmar Build­ing, is to be auc­tioned off on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 1.

Sur­rounded by mu­se­ums, the land­mark Moed­erk­erk and cen­tury-old oak trees that line the fa­mous Church and Ryn­eveld streets, the build­ing was de­signed by Paul le Roux and built in the early 1970s on in­struc­tion of the well­known Stel­len­bosch fam­ily, the Du Toits.

For the first 10 years, An­dré du Toit sr used the cor­ner re­tail store for his shoe store, but later handed the reins over to his son, who built up the An­leo name, which con­tin­ued suc­cess­fully for two decades. For the past nine years, Era has oc­cu­pied this re­tail space.

In 1999, the block was sec­tion­alised by Ger­hard Gous and Jac­ques du Toit. The build­ing con­sists of four storeys with a gar­den bal­cony.

In the past four years, the his­tor­i­cal core of Stel­len­bosch has blos­somed into a hive of cof­fee shops and de­signer stores ap­peal­ing to the thou­sands of tourists who visit th­ese parts.

For the first time, the cor­ner re­tail unit, mea­sur­ing 110m², that was home to Du Toit Skoene, An­leo and now Era, will be up for sale by pub­lic auc­tion by Vil­lage Liv­ing.
