Auctioneers line up prime properties in string of urgent year-end sales
AUCTIONEERS Philip Powell and Mark Gadd have been instructed by various liquidators, financial institutions and distress sellers to urgently auction off several prime Garden Route residential properties at short notice.
“Due to these ‘must sell’ circumstances, investors and bargain hunters will have an opportunity to clinch genuine good value deals – and these properties are already attracting keen interest,” says Gadd. Jeffreys Bay The properties on offer include a modern, double-storey mansion to be sold on instruction from Progressive Administrators, the trustee in this insolvency estate matter.
The house has guest house potential or could be used as a family or holiday home, says Gadd. “It has six bedrooms, five with en-suite bathrooms, a study, seven spacious open-plan entertainment areas, domestic quarters and a guest flatlet. It also has many extra features and is in close proximity to all amenities.”
The auction will take place on site at 14 Chinaberry Street, J e f f r e y s B a y, o n M o n d a y, December 20, at 10am, with previews on December 18 and 19 from 11am to 4pm.

Situated on 10 000m², Guineafowl Guest Lodge – a property that Gadd describes as “immaculate” – must be sold to facilitate the owner’s relocation, Gadd says.
The main house, measuring about 600m² under roof, has five bedrooms. The property also includes a large self-contained cottage that leads to the outdoor entertainment areas and swimming pool.
Situated 39km from Mossel Bay, the property offers various income-producing options and is under-used in its present form, he says. “It is expected to sell way below its real value.”
The auction will take place on site at 10 Marsh Street, Albertinia, on Tuesday, December 21, at 10am, with previews on December 18, 19 and 20 from 11am to 4pm.

Groot Brak Rivier Another property that will go under the hammer is an ultramodern six-bedroom mansion, offering 640m² of living space in Groot Brak Rivier, which is 30km from George and 27km from Mossel Bay.
“This double-volume home, with imported interior fin- ishes, provides an upmarket hospitality opportunity in an ideal location,” says Gadd.
“Its imposing entrance hall creates an impression that appropriately reflects the rest of the manor. The living space includes a gourmet kitchen that will delight entertainers. The property also has large balconies overlooking a rimflow designer pool, as well as automated double garages and extra undercover parking.”
He adds that panoramic views complement “the outstanding characteristics of this Southern Cape gem, where the buyer will be able to live a privileged life, enjoying total relaxation and discovering the unspoilt beaches from Glentana to Little Brak River”.
The auction will take place on site at 11 Kaaimans Road, Bergsig, Groot Brak Rivier, on Tuesday, December 21, at 2pm, with previews on December 18, 19 and 20 from 11am to 4pm.

The property is one of a limited number of fully-developed stands on Buffalo Bay, which is regarded as one of the most beautiful coastal resorts on the outskirts of Knysna, he says.
The four-bedroomed home is in a prime position. With its huge wrap-around balcony, it offers uninterrupted views of the beach and ocean. Gadd considers the property, which includes a se parate fullyequipped flat, to be among the most desirable in Buffalo Bay.
The auction will take place on site at 82 Sand Street, Buffalo Bay, on Wednesday, December 22, at 10am, with previews on December 18, 19, 20 and 21 from 11am to 4pm.

“This urgent short-notice auction will enable bidders to take advantage of the sellers’ imminent emigration to obtain a private residence or holiday getaway at a bargain price,” he says.
T h e t r i p l e - s t o r e y h o me, which has four en-suite bedrooms, has sweeping views and is designed with all rooms facing the ocean, he says. “The interior finishes are of the highest calibre, and an indoor bridge links some of the bedrooms.”
The upmarket thatched residence includes a fullyequipped gourmet kitchen and a wine cellar. “It also has a swimming pool, double-volume garages and many added-value extras.”
The auction will take place on site at Hoeketwil, 231 Ten Mile Lane, Wilderness Heights, on Wednesday, December 22, at 2pm, with previews on December 11, 12, 18, 19, 20 and 21 from 11am to 4pm.
