Prime property now on the Web
Online auctions are taking centre stage across all sectors of the South African and international market, writes Michelle Swart
improvements include a manned security office at the main entrance, a tarred parking area surrounding the office block and a large gated yard and dispatch area at the rear of the property. The gross annual income on the property is R3,62m.
Situated 6km from Cape Town, N’Dabeni is considered a prime location, with easy access to the M5, N1 and N2 highways. Bordered to the southeast by Pinelands and to the north by Maitland, the area is served by a railway station.
“This property has an excellent rental income with solid tenants in place, and the overall investment analysis, available to potential bidders is impressive.”
Faclier says that aside from the industrial site, an opportunity exists for bidders to purchase 2ha of land in Gauteng with extensive accommodation and various other facilities on site.
The property is in Hartzenbergfontein, just 81km north of Pretoria, and would be ideal for conferencing, a rehabilitation or treatment centre, a holiday camp or a religious institution.
Joey Burke, New Business Development for Go-Dove Property (Africa), says: “SA is becoming increasingly popular as a destination for everything from holidaying and conferencing to rehabilitation and even medical safaris. The Go-Dove international online auction platform will create great exposure for these kinds of properties around the world.”
The property measures 20 215ha and includes a large central dwelling with a number of outbuildings. A large thatched-roof residence offers up to 20 bedrooms with a combination of communal showers and en suite bathrooms. The property also features separate entertainment areas, an enormous hall with a stage, conference rooms, several kitchens and three living room/lounges. In addition, it has four self-contained outbuildings with living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms. A large swimming pool and an enclosed thatched boma complete the picture.
A luxurious Constantia guesthouse will also be included in the online auction.
Faclier says that the online auction will showcase this desirable, fully functional guesthouse in the Constantia winelands not only to local but also to international buyers through the international website at a time when Cape Town continues to be rated across the globe as one of the best tourist destinations in the world.
To be sold as a going concern, the property, which is situated at 28 Evergreen Lane, operates as a well-established business with a loyal, existing client base and bookings into the future, says Faclier.
It covers 2 152m² and the 4star guesthouse has 12 bedrooms, as well as conference facilities. There is a separate dining area, a large kitchen and ample off-street parking for guests within fully walled and secured premises.
Located in the heart of the Cape’s world-renowned Constantia winelands, its overall appeal is one of serenity, says Faclier.
The property has views of Table Mountain and the guesthouse is set amid a large garden with rolling lawns, a marble courtyard, wooden decks and a swimming pool.
“These properties are prime examples of the type of selectively chosen range in which Go-Dove Africa will be specialising, and will be available for bidding online alongside a number of other unique commercial and high-end residential investment opportunities that will be on auction in August,” says Faclier.
These properties, among others, will be on auction via GoDove’s international website.
While they can be viewed online from a month before the auction, the auction itself will open on August 21 at 14h00 and close on August 25 at 16h00.
