Known as the Jewel of the Garden Route, top holiday destination Plettenberg Bay has not always been an attainable choice for would-be home buyers, due to high property prices.
Local Sotheby’s International Realty franchisee, Hein Pretorius, says in the past few years, prices have moderated considerably and created some excellent buying opportunities with the most attractive of these at the moment being the luxury apartments in the Thulana Hill development at the top of Marine Drive on the ridge overlooking Robberg Beach.
He says the two, three and four bedroom units in the completed first phase of this development are available in a variety of spacious layouts, including some duplexes, but all offer luxury finishes, large entertainment patios, 24 hour security and some have good sea views.
“And prices range from R1.29 million including VAT for a three bedroom, two bathroom apartment of 133 square metres to R3.59 million including VAT for a four bedroom, four bathroom home of 313 square metres with excellent sea views, which represents the best value currently available for an upmarket development on the Garden Route.”
A two bedroom, one bathroom apartment is on the market for R1.15 million - click here to view.
According to Pretorius these apartments average around R10 000 per square metre – a price at which it is not now possible to build similar homes.
Thulana Hill is about 30 percent cheaper than any similar development in Plett, and the apartments are also more spacious than the average available. Also, prices include VAT so there is no transfer duty, and the developer will pay the transferring attorneys’ legal fees.
He says best of all, the developer is also offering a R100 000 discount to anyone purchasing before 31 December 2012.
Features of the Thulana Hill apartments include Caesarstone kitchen counter tops, aluminium windows and sliding doors, quality built-in hobs and ovens with both gas and electricity, space for four kitchen appliances (fridge, washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher) and covered parking.
The luxury duplex units also have a hot tub on the patio as well as a built-in Weber gas braai and a single garage.
This apartment, on Upper Main Street, offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a swimming pool and 24 hour security. It is priced at R1.58 million - click here to view.
Outdoors, Thulana Hill has lush, rolling lawns and indigenous landscaped gardens, as well as a large pool with a wooden deck that enjoys an outstanding view of the bay. The complex also has good security provisions including controlled access via a manned gatehouse, and security patrols at night.
Pretorius says the development is also just five minutes away from all the main attractions and amenities of Plett, including the beaches, the lagoon, two highly-rated golf courses and the shops, restaurants and night-spots in the centre of town.
“Plett is also surrounded by nature reserves that offer extensive opportunities for bird-watchers, hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians in addition to its full array of beach, river and sea watersports.”
He says for those who are contemplating living there permanently, it is also worth noting that there are excellent schools in Plett and that the local airport is being upgraded and is scheduled to re-open next year.
