14 Dec 2012

Rawson Auctions Mossel Bay will on 19 December auction 40 Coney Glen, a property situated right on top of the rocky cliffs over the Knysna Heads.

Situated between the coastal towns of Still Bay and Jongensfontein, the 138 hectare property boasts 850 metres of coastal frontage onto the warm Indian Ocean, beautiful coastal thicket and fynbos with several small game.

The dual storey home, which occupies much of the 1 082 square metre site has five façades, each with either extensive glazing or spacious balconies.

Its roof is covered in expensive terracotta tiling which protrudes beyond the building line to give extra shade protection.

Internally the home has 600 square metres of floor area which is covered either in large porcelain tiles or Italian short cut frieze carpeting.   

Peter Southey, franchisee for Rawson Properties Knysna says Knysna residential property now appears to be on a strong recovery path with 20 ‘significant’ sales so far this year, more than double the number of large homes sold in 2011.

This is not surprising as Knysna, like many other areas in the Garden Route, is becoming a hot spot on the tourist map, he says.

Knysna recently made it onto Conde Nast Travellers’ Top 5 African cities list, coming in at a close second to Cape Town.

The auction will take place on site at 12pm.

The auction will take place at 12pm at 126 Main Road, Diep River and the reserve price has been set at R1 million.

Tanya Jovanovski, Western Cape franchisee for Rawson Auctions says this house conforms to the classic Cape cottage style in every way – with gables, white plastered walls and wooden shutters –  it is, in fact, a totally modern house, built only a few years ago to very high standards and with state-of-the-art materials.

It is not subject to the damp and decay that have plagued some of the mud brick homes in this attractive historic village.

The house is situated at the northern end of the village, some 22km from Robertson.

It has two ground floor en suite bedrooms, as well as two attic bedrooms.

The home is within 15 minutes' driving distance of Robertson and within walking distance of the start of the Boesmanskloof trail, which links McGregor to Greyton.

It is also close to the Breede River and within 45 minutes’ drive of the Brandvlei Dam, both of which make McGregor well suited to water sports enthusiasts.
