Renowned South African professional golfer, Retief Goosen, or “The Goose” as he is more affectionately known by his fans, has placed his Zebula Country Club and Golf Estate home on the market for R7.5 million.

This property in Zebula Estate has a four-bedroom, four-bathroom main house and two self-catering cottages, each comprising of one bedroom, one bathroom, and a lounge area and fireplace. The property is on the market for R7.5 million - click here to view.

The Zebula Country Club and Golf Estate is located on 1 600ha of pristine bushveld in the shadow of the Waterberg Mountains, in a unique bushveld setting with a variety of wildlife on its doorstep, says Loua Boshoff, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Bushveld, who is currently marketing the property on behalf of Retief.

“This is the 18-hole golf course, designed by Peter Matkovich, which has received a five star golf experience award from Compleat Golfer Magazine since 2011.

“It is easy to see why people such as Retief Goosen have purchased property in the estate,” he says.

As with all property purchases, Boshoff says location is an important aspect for buyers to consider as it has a major influence over appreciation, plus an estate’s location adds to the overall experience of living there.

Only top-end finishes were used throughout the spacious main house. The large open-plan lounge, raised dining room, fully-fitted contemporary kitchen, fully-equipped bar and in-house fire pit make the home perfect for entertaining guests - click here to view.

Zebula is located just two hours’ drive north of Johannesburg in the Limpopo Province. The area boasts indigenous tree-covered hills, open grasslands, dams and waterholes, and of course, the views of the mountains. This unique location provides residents with a remote, out-of-town setting without being too far removed from a major metropolitan hub.

Regional Director and CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, Adrian Goslett, says due to their security and lifestyle offering, estates are highly sought-after among buyers. “Security is a top priority for the majority of South African home buyers, so combining security aspects with lifestyle features such as a golf course and the bushveld ensures an excellent return on investment over the long term,” says Goslett.

Goosen’s property is located approximately five kilometres from the Zebula Clubhouse in the second phase of the estate known as Morkels. Only 13 homes were built in this section of the estate providing residents with space and privacy. “Every effort has been made to ensure that residents can enjoy their tranquil bushveld surroundings within their own secluded space,” says Boshoff.

“As with all other homes within the Zebula estate, the property has been designed and positioned so that it blends into the natural surroundings of the area. It was crucial to the estate developers to maintain the integrity of the terrain and naturally combine the exclusive homes into the indigenous bush and landscape,” says Boshoff
