Brisk sales in con­ve­nient Gor­don’s Bay

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

NES­TLED at the foot of the Hot­ten­tots Hol­land moun­tain range, Gor­don’s Bay oc­cu­pies a beau­ti­ful po­si­tion be­tween the moun­tains and ocean, and has a wide va­ri­ety of homes to suit all types of buy­ers.

Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties re­ports that in­ter­est in the town swelled over the fes­tive sea­son, with out-oftown vis­i­tors and for­eign­ers seek­ing prop­er­ties.

Dur­ing Novem­ber and De­cem­ber alone, PGP’s agents con­cluded R12.5 mil­lion in sales in the town, in­clud­ing two lux­ury moun­tain­side and water­front homes, priced at R3m and R3.5m.

PGP’s area man­ager, Linda Killick, says the com­pany now has more than 50 Gor­don’s Bay homes for sale, rang­ing from apart­ments priced at R365 000 to lux­ury homes for about R16m.

“We also have a num­ber of homes ideal for fam­ily buy­ers, priced from around R1.5m.

“Bikini Beach of­fers safe swim­ming in warm wa­ters, and has en­joyed Blue Flag sta­tus for three con­sec­u­tive years now. And there are am­ple op­por­tu­ni­ties to get out into na­ture, from gen­tle hikes in the sur­round­ing moun­tains to more stren­u­ous ex­cur­sions like kloof­ing in the Steen­bras River Gorge, paraglid­ing or quad-bik­ing.

“Wa­ter­sports en­thu­si­asts, in par­tic­u­lar, are well catered for, and the town has two har­bours, in­clud­ing a mod­ern new ma­rina around which the Har­bour Is­land precinct has been de­vel­oped, with se­cure apart­ments, restau­rants and shop­ping op­por­tu­ni­ties,” says Killick.

Gor­don’s Bay lies on the fringes of the Ko­gel­berg Bio­sphere, a World Her­itage Site renowned for its wealth of flora and fauna, and reg­u­lar vis­i­tors to the moun­tain­side above the town in­clude the rare geo­met­ric tor­toise, ba­boons, lynx and even the oc­ca­sional leop­ard. Flower lovers will ap­pre­ci­ate the Gor­don’s Bay pin­cush­ion, which is en­demic to the slopes be­tween the town and nearby Ko­gel Bay. Whales also reg­u­larly fre­quent the bay from June to Novem­ber.

An­nien Borg, PGP’s MD for the Boland and Over­berg re­gions, says the com­pany’s re­cent sales have in­cluded some to re­turn­ing ex­pa­tri­ates and a num­ber of in­vest­ment buy­ers who have recog­nised the ex­cel­lent value for money on of­fer and the con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion.

“Gor­don’s Bay is close to work op­por­tu­ni­ties in Som­er­set West and Stel­len­bosch, which are less than 20 min­utes away, close to the air­port, and even within easy reach of Kuils River and its sur­round­ing in­dus­trial ar­eas.”

PGP’s homes for sale in­clude a lux­u­ri­ous 750m beach­front home in a se­cure com­plex at R12m.
