Gor­don’s Bay of­fer­ing could be fam­ily home or in­vest­ment prop­erty

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A home de­scribed as “a dou­ble-storey mas­ter­piece, with four sep­a­rate units lo­cated at the back of the house” will be auc­tioned by silent ten­der by Raw­son Auc­tions Western Cape to­wards the end of this month.

“The pic­turesque town of Gor­don’s Bay, which is sit­u­ated just out­side Cape Town, is dot­ted with lux­ury homes that hug the Hot­ten­tots-Hol­land moun­tain range and over­look the False Bay coast­line,” says Tanya Jo­vanovski, fran­chisee of Raw­son Auc­tions Western Cape. “The moder­nity of these homes and the beau­ti­ful, nat­u­ral sur­round­ings give each an in­di­vid­ual look.”

The home on of­fer - 1 Amaryl­lis Street, Gor­don’s Bay – is set on a 515m² erf. The main house has two bed­rooms, both with en-suite bath­rooms and lo­cated up­stairs, where there are mag­nif­i­cent views of the Helder­berg moun­tains from the pa­tios, Jo­vanovski says. The down­stairs sec­tion con­sists of a large lounge/din­ing area, an open-plan kitchen and a guest toi­let. The house has slid­ing doors that open onto a pa­tio with a built braai and the gar­den. “There is also an in­ter­lead­ing door from the main house to one of the units at the back, so this unit could eas­ily be used as a third bed­room,” she sug­gests.

Jo­vanovski adds that the four units on the prop­erty all have sep­a­rate en­trances. “Three of­fer sim­i­lar ac­com­mo­da­tion: each com­prises one bed­room, a bath­room, a lounge and an open-plan kitchen. The fourth unit is an open-plan stu­dio flat­let with a shower and toi­let.”

She adds that two of the units are cur­rently used as flats. The oth­ers have the ver­sa­til­ity al­ter­na­tively to serve as games rooms, stu­dios or store­rooms.

“In my view, this house presents many pos­si­bil­i­ties – it could be used as a large fam­ily home with granny flat, for ex­am­ple, or as an in­come-pro­duc­ing in­vest­ment with good re­turns.”

Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude a roof-top deck with panoramic views over False Bay, lead­ing the eye all the way to Ta­ble Moun­tain; a car­port for three ve­hi­cles with ex­tra bays; and a well-main­tained gar­den, she says.

Jo­vanovski points out that the prom­e­nade at Gor­don’s Bay has many at­trac­tions and is lined with plenty of restau­rants, cafés and fish shops.

“The town of­fers easy ac­cess to the Som­er­set West mall and the Helder­berg wine routes, and, be­cause it is sit­u­ated on the coast­line, there is an easy drive to Her­manus or Betty’s Bay dur­ing the whale sea­son.”

The auc­tion will take place at noon on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 27. The re­serve price is R2.2 mil­lion, but all of­fers will be re­viewed. The seller is not reg­is­tered for VAT and trans­fer duty will there­fore be payable. Rates and taxes are R789.39 per month. View­ings will be by ap­point­ment only.
