Great country lifestyle a stone's throw from Ballito

Category News

Explains Andreas Wassenaar, Principal of Seeff Dolphin Coast: “A property like this is unique in that it is what you would expect to find in the heart of the Midlands – but it is located conveniently within the greater Ballito area and therefore close to all amenities.

“This extraordinary property features a designer manor house and sensational farm-like setting. An amazing sense of arrival greets visitors with a wide driveway and beautiful century-old trees dominating the landscape. The inspired residence has been newly developed and is a perfect example of contemporary country architecture with central courtyard, 4m high ceilings and oversized living and entertaining areas.

“The spectacular outlook from the extended deck and pool area towards the natural lake, fed by on-site springs and embraced by coastal forest, is out of this world. The home immediately creates a sense of understated opulence and draws on historical farm buildings found in places such as the winelands of Franschhoek.”

Intelligently designed and positioned on the property, the home is built on one level with the kitchen, dining, living and entertainment areas situated on the south side while the large study main bedroom, second TV lounge and additional four bedrooms are located along the northern wing. The spaces open up onto the internal courtyard as well as the outward sides, making for a beautifully integrated home.

As well as five bedrooms the home has four bathrooms, three garages, a study and staff accommodation. The property is completely fenced, with a security gate, guard house and electric fencing.

The Deeds Office registered extent of the erf is 21 721 m2. The newly constructed home provides a total of 668 m2 and the staff accommodation and outbuildings an additional 50 m2. A loft room above the triple garage adds 80 m2 and the deck and pool area a further 94 m2. The total built area is therefore 892 m2 in extent.

Adds Wassenaar: “As a lifestyle farm located within a vibrant urban hub with access to all the amenities possible, this property is unique and an extremely rare find. It offers great potential for a superb lifestyle as well as being an excellent investment opportunity. There are four world-class private schools within the immediate area, a Netcare Hospital close by and a Life Hospital currently being planned, making access to medical service providers outstanding.

“The new Ballito Junction Regional Mall that opened in March 2017 is a national showcase of 80 000 m2 of superb retail space, and is in addition to the other two existing convenience lifestyle malls, with a third one currently under construction.

“The greater Ballito area within the Kwadukuza Municipality is one of the fastest growing areas in the country and is experiencing a flood of migration from Pretoria and Gauteng as people are making the decision to relocate their families and businesses to the area.

“Apart from the use of this magnificent property as a lifestyle smallholding within a high growth node, the future development potential adds a further dimension and value proposition.”
