Pezula offers best golf estate value in beautiful Knysna

Internationally acclaimed for its scenic beauty, the Garden Route that runs along the Southern Cape coast from Mossel Bay almost to Port Elizabeth has steadily also gained renown as a world-class golfing destination – and home to some of the most desirable properties in SA.


Just launched to market by the Luxury Portfolio® division of Chas Everitt International, this grand R28,5m mansion in Pezula Golf Estate features seven luxurious bedroom suites, expansive formal and informal living areas, a 500-bottle wine cellar with an adjoining cinema and pool room, a fully-equipped gym and steam room and a kitchen fitted with Gaggenau appliances, as well as high-speed internet connectivity, full home automation, a rim flow pool, a three-car garage and a separate golf-cart garage leading into the house.
 
The stretch between George and Knysna, in particular, is rich in signature courses designed by such golfing greats as Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Ernie Els, and in residential golf estates offering luxury homes in spectacular settings.”
 
But not many of these estates can offer the exceptional combination of panoramic views, beach access, top-notch facilities, high security and value-for-money that is to be found at Pezula Golf Estate in Knysna, where the Chas Everitt Luxury Portfolio© division has just listed a magnificent seven-suite mansion for R28,5m.
 
Angela Clack, the Chas Everitt International resident agent at Pezula, notes that the estate is built around a championship golf course and that all homes have been sited to maximise expansive views of the Indian Ocean, Knysna Lagoon and the Outeniqua Mountains. “Security provisions here include guarded access control points with biometric scanners, and facilities include an upmarket clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, walking trails and direct access to a private beach.
 
“Residents also have access to the five-star Conrad Pezula Resort & Spa adjacent to the estate, which is home to Zachary's gourmet restaurant, a champagne and whisky bar, cigar lounge, a boutique and a multi-award-winning spa and gym, as well as several executive boardrooms.”
 
In short, she says, Pezula offers a highly enviable, tranquil lifestyle, just 10 minutes’ drive from the centre of trendy Knysna, with its increasingly cosmopolitan blend of cafés, restaurants, shops, galleries and beachside bars, and only five minutes’ drive from the Knysna Private Hospital.


 
“For family buyers, there are also excellent public and private schools in Knysna, and for business travellers, there are reliable shuttle services to the international airport in George, just 70km away.
 
“However, even with all this going for it, the estate offers exceptional real estate value, starting with stands of around 1000sqm for just R500 000 or R600 000. Currently there are also several upmarket golf villas for sale in the R3,5m to R4,5m range, so the entry level is considerably lower than for most other luxury lifestyle and golf estates.
 
“And at the other end of the scale, the R28,5m property just listed by my colleague Jared Watney is really extraordinary for that price. It has views from almost every bedroom and entertainment space, and features a 500-bottle wine cellar with an adjoining cinema, a pool room, a fully-equipped gym and steam room, a kitchen fitted with Gaggenau appliances, high-speed internet connectivity, full home automation, a rim flow pool, a three-car garage, golf cart storage and a separate plant/ machine room as well as two 5000-litre tanks for rainwater storage.” 



With value like this on offer it is hardly surprising, says Clack, that buyers from all over SA and from other countries have shown increasing interest in Pezula over the past few years. There were 40 home sales in the estate in 2016, and homes have now been built on more than 270 of the original 470 stands.
 
“And the effect of this, of course, is that prices are starting to rise now, so those who are contemplating a purchase here should not delay too long.”
