Buy­ers plan dream home af­ter scoop­ing De Goede Hoop land for R9.75m

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

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.
