Have you ever dreamed of owning a castle? This stone castle on the West Coast in the picturesque coastal village of Saldanha is on the market for R7,6m.
The three-storey castle was built by its current owner after a visit to the famed Noetzie castles on the Garden Route.
“It is a solid stone and mortar building and all the décor inside helps to give it the authentic medieval castle feeling, although the amenities are decidedly modern,” says Elma Steyn of Seeff Saldanha/Jacobs Bay.
The three-storey castle was built by its current owner after a visit to the famed Noetzie castles on the Garden Route. It has nine bedrooms, all en suite, with views of the bay and the price includes linen and furniture. Other features include a huge dining room that can seat around 50 guests, a solid redwood staircase and a top terrace with a view of the bay.
The castle has been run as a guest house and has double tandem garages, a well stocked library for guests, two kitchens, huge fireplace/indoor braai, and a patio on the top floor with a raised wooden deck that gives a 360 degree view.
The castle has nine bedrooms, all en suite, with views of the bay.
Steyn says Saldanha caters for all types of investors. “Houses here range in price from R500 000 to R6,5m with an amazing variety of styles of accommodation including seafront, hillside, with a view of the bay, business premises, industrial land, development land or agricultural land.”
The castle is well positioned for tourists and holiday makers, with eco-tourism a popular pastime in this part of the world. The West Coast National Park is easily accessible and the flowers in springtime attract visitors to the area.
Other well-known towns within a radius of 20 km include Paternoster, Jacobsbaai, Tietiesbaai, Blue Water Bay and Stompneus Bay. Two large shopping Malls - Weskus Mall and Laguna Mall - serve the communities within a 60 km radius, offering the convenience of the big city malls.
