Two ‘rare’ Kom­metjie beach­front houses change hands in two months

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

PAM GOLD­ING Prop­er­ties has sold an­other beach­front prop­erty in Kom­metjie – its sec­ond front-row sale in as many months.

The home, in Old Kom, was sold late last month for R10 mil­lion to a Cape Town buyer who in­tends to make it her home.

In April, PGP agents Tracey Reid-Da­ley and Pepita Mace sold an­other beach­front home, ad­ja­cent to the main swim­ming and surf­ing beach, for R8.9m, also to a lo­cal buyer.

PGP’s MD for the Western Cape metro re­gion, Lau­rie Wener, says there have been sev­eral beach­front prop­er­ties for sale in Kom­metjie this year.

“This is quite un­usual, as homes with di­rect beach ac­cess are of­ten kept in the fam­ily for gen­er­a­tions,” she says.

PGP’s area man­ager for the South Penin­sula, Sandi Gilden­huys, says Kom­metjie ap­peals to lovers of the out­door life­style and par­ents who want a whole­some en­vi­ron­ment in which to raise their chil­dren.

“Long Beach of­fers safe swim­ming, surf­ing and seakayak­ing, as well as beau­ti­ful views to­wards Hout Bay, Chap­man’s Peak and even the back of Ta­ble Moun­tain,” she says.

“The vil­lage has a low crime rate and an easy-go­ing, warm at­mos­phere – this is a place where neigh­bours still know each other, and chil­dren still skate­board on the streets.

“There are ex­cel­lent hos­pi­tals, pri­vate and govern­ment schools within a 30-minute drive, and nearby Long Beach Mall of­fers ma­jor shop­ping, restau­rants and en­ter­tain­ment fa­cil­i­ties. And Cape Town is an easy drive over OuKaapse Weg, mak­ing this a fea­si­ble com­mute, as well as an ideal lo­ca­tion for peo­ple who want to work from home.”

PGP’s beach­front man­dates in Kom­metjie in­clude “a spec­tac­u­lar home” on the north­ern­most tip of the vil­lage, in the Klein Slangkop Es­tate, for sale at R19m, says Gilden­huys.

The 947m2 prop­erty over­looks the length of Long Beach and has views of No­ord­hoek and Hout Bay, she says.

The 260m2 house, with a steel-and-con­crete ex­te­rior, is clad in Burmese teak, and in­te­rior fin­ishes in­clude oak floors, cherry and oak cupboards, and a mod­ern wood and gran­ite kitchen with a sep­a­rate scullery and laun­dry.

Lux­ury fea­tures in­clude a wine cel­lar, a sauna, a spa bath, and a heated pool. There is un­der-floor heat­ing through­out, as well as air-con­di­tion­ing, so­lar heat­ing pan­els and wiring for a com­puter net­work. A dou­ble garage has di­rect ac­cess into the house as well as a walk-in loft area for stor­age.

Other beach­front homes for sale in Kom­metjie in­clude a thatched four-bed­room home over­look­ing Long Beach, with white­washed walls and a huge stoep. A Cape Dutch/Mediter­ranean style home is for sale at R9.9m. PGP is also mar­ket­ing Sun­set Beach, a large thatched home on the front row with five bed­rooms with en-suite bath­rooms and a sep­a­rate cot­tage, as well as a swim­ming pool, which is for sale at R11m, says Gilden­huys.

BEACH TREA­SURE: This home in Klein Slangkop Es­tate, Kom­metjie, is for sale through Pam Gold­ing Prop­er­ties at R19 mil­lion.
