Pinelands thatch offers many uses
RAWSON Auctions Western Cape is bringing to auction a large thatched family home with a zoning opening it up to a multitude of uses.
Situated on 1 058m² at 18 Forest Drive in Pinelands, the property has a single residential zone 1 zoning, signifying its primary use is as a conventional residential dwelling.
“However, the additional use rights permit the property to be converted into a B&B or home childcare facility,” says Rawson Auctions Western Cape franchisee Tanya Jovanovski.
“The consent uses also allow the property to be developed as premises for the provision of utility services, as a place of instruction, place of worship, house shop or institution.”
The home comprises three bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom, family bathroom, lounge, dining room, family room, bar area, breakfast room and open-plan kitchen. There is also a loft.
The garden includes a terrace overlooking a pool and a driveway that leads to a carport, and allows parking for up to four additional cars. At the back of the garden is an office/yoga studio.
The auction will be by silent tender, with written offers to be submitted in sealed envelopes. Tenders close at noon on June 28. The reserve price is R4.3 million, but all offers will be reviewed. The seller is registered for VAT, and transfer duty is therefore not payable. The rates are R1 760 a month.
No registration fee is required to bid. However, the terms are that the buyer must pay a deposit of 5% of the purchase price, and 10% commission plus VAT over and above the purchase price, to Rawson Auctions on the seller’s acceptance of the bid. Bidders are required to be registered and must have with them certified copies of their identity documents and proof of residence.
All offers should be submitted on Rawson Auctions’ Offer to Purchase form, with its standard terms and conditions, a copy of which can be obtained by contacting the Rawson Auctions Western Cape office at info@ rawsonauctions.com or on 021 837 1700. Bids can be delivered to the Rawson Property Group’s head office at 222 Main Road, Rondebosch.
For more information or an appointment to view call Josh Raisun on 078 888 9534 or Tanya Jovanovski on 021 837 1700.
