Buyers plan dream home after scooping De Goede Hoop land for R9.75m
PAM GOLDING Properties has sold a five-acre plot in Noordhoek’s De Goede Hoop Estate for R9.75 million – just three days after it was separated from a larger property and offered for sale separately.
The buyers, former residents of Botswana and the US, were already living in South Africa. They intend to build their dream home on the property, which backs onto the Table Mountain National Park.
PGP’S area manager for the south peninsula, Sandi Gildenhuys, says the price may seem high for vacant land, but is comparable to other sales in De Goede Hoop Estate.
“This is one of the most s ought - af t er addresses i n Noordhoek, highly regarded for its magnificent location on the eastern slopes of Chapman’s Peak, with views across the entire valley and False Bay,” she said. “It has extensive security, including 24- hour patrols, and is next to the Noordhoek Farm Village with its restaurants and speciality shops. Horse- back riders in particular love the estate for its bridle path, and each of the 43 properties has permission for a stable. There is also a private access path for beach riding on nearby Long Beach.
“For those who prefer to stay on foot there is a network o f f o o t p a t h s whi c h r u n s through a 300-hectare private fynbos reserve surrounding the estate, and many hiking routes in the near vicinity.”
This site was originally part of a 15-acre property for sale in the upper section of the estate, but the owners decided to subdivide it.
Gildenhuys says the remaining 10-acre property is for sale at R27m, including a house known as Noordhoek Villa, set in an indigenous garden. The neo- Roman- style home is designed around an open-air central courtyard and has a dee p f r ont veranda enclosed by classical double columns.
The home has four doublebedrooms and spacious entertainment areas and finishes include solid oak floors and marble-tiled bathrooms. There is a separate manager’s house and a 10m x 30m swimming pool.
PGP’S managing director for the Western Cape metro area, Laurie Wener, says values in De Goede Hoop Estate are relatively resistant to market fluctuations.
