Gordon’s Bay offering could be family home or investment property
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. No registration fee is required to bid with Rawson Auctions. However, the buyer will be expected to pay a deposit of five percent of the purchase price, and 10 percent commission plus VAT over and above the purchase price to Rawson Auctions on the seller’s acceptance of the bid.
Potential bidders are required to be registered and must have with them certified copies of their identity documents and proof of residence.
